We are very excited to announce that we are going to have the Columbus Day Festa again this year. There is no concern for weather conditions, as the Festa will be held on October 16 inside the air-conditioned Atrium of the Belle of Baton Rouge.
A limited number of Italian American Maid positions are available to daughters, grand -daughters, and friends of A.I.A. Members, Italian American Marchers, and Grandsons of Italy.
Maids will be escorted and presented on stage by their fathers, grandfathers, brothers, etc. during the Festa. Escorts can present more than one maid.
Junior Maid positions are available to girls ages 7-12. Senior Maids will be single girls ages 13-21, and this year we will be presenting Mini Maids ages 3-6.
All maids will wear long solid white dresses, white shoes, and long or short white gloves. Escorts will wear coat and tie.
IF YOU HAVE A WHITE DRESS TO SELL OR LEND, PLEASE ADVISE LEAH ARRIGO. THIS INFO WILL BE PASSED ON TO OTHER PARENTS. PLEASE INCLUDE THE DRESS SIZE.
All maids will be provided with Italian colored sashes along with a nosegay of red, white, and green flowers with small American and Italian Flags.
A nominal fee of $25.00 per maid is needed to offset the cost of sashes, flags, flowers, and other expenses. This fee is due by August 31, 2011.
