This really sounds like fun. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.
Quick Question - I will be driving in Saturday morning from Buffalo. Should
I go to the hotel first or to the church?

Just an update on how things are coming along for the Reunion. At this
point we have about 36 people coming to Rochester so I think we will have a
very nice group. I am still getting some last minute calls from folks, so
if you are still thinking of coming, please contact me as soon as possible.
The cutoff date for room reservations was Sept 7th, but if you still want to
come I will try to see if I can still get you in to the hotel (I don't know
if I can, but I'll try my hardest) or I will direct you to some hotels that
are close by that would give you a rate close to our reunion rate. Don't
stay away just because we've passed the cutoff date!!
For those that are coming to the Reunion, as a gift for everyone, I have
arranged some custom designed coffee mugs with a Panoramic view of Termini
on them and the inscription "Citta di Termini Imerese" (City of Termini
Imerese). I also had "refrigerator magnets" made up for everyone with the
same Termini panoramic view and another magnet with a great shot of the
Duomo San Nicola di Bari. The refrigerator magnets really came out great
and I just received a notice today that the coffee mugs were shipped today
and should arrive by this Friday in plenty of time for the Reunion. Lastly,
back at our Salt Lake City reunion, I believe it was Dave Corso who sent
high resolution scans of some 1904 Termini Postcards to Laura, which Laura
let me copy. I will have CD's which include the 1904 high resolution
postcards plus a set of 12 high resolution postcards that I purchased in
Termini last year at our 2006 Reunion. I'm hoping that these will be things
everyone will enjoy taking back with them - not to mention the great
memories of having a wonderful time at our annual Reunion.
We don't have a "Termini Community" in Rochester, the way Toronto does, so I
can't say how many Termini folks from Rochester may attend the Saturday
morning get together, but I have distributed flyers at our Italian American
Community Center and an announcement was and will be made on the local
Sunday Italian radio program. One of my cousins is a PR person for one of
the local colleges and he has put out some publicity releases for us, so we
will see what happens. Regardless of who comes from Rochester, we will have
a wonderful time ourselves!
FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT COMING - DON'T FORGET TO SEND YOUR ANCESTOR/PEDIGREE
CHARTS! Every year we have Ancestor Charts all along the walls of the room
for everyone to examine and we always find matches between our trees, so
please prepare them this week and send them directly to me at my address:
Paul J. Caito
2085 Elmwood Avenue
Rochester, New York 14620
PLEASE CALL ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE IF YOU THINK YOU CAN MAKE IT AFTER ALL
AND WOULD STILL LIKE TO BE WITH US! Don't stay away because of the "cutoff"
date if you want to be with us!
Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 28th!
