Christmas Lunch a Great Success

32 members of the Laguna Niguel Bocce Club attended our annual Christmas lunch at Fratello’s Restaurant in Laguna Niguel.  Bobbie the owner once again served us an Italian feast that was enjoyed by all.  It included a Ceasar Salad, Pene Past with a pink sauce, sausage and pepper and Spumoni ice cream for dessert.  Red and white wine were provided by the club.


Many thanks to Santiana, Pietro’s wife for holiday treat of Tiramusu and espresso coffee.  It was delicious and everyone appreciated it.
