The November program will be the presentation of a video from Nick Lombardo.

Nick was born in Italy and sent to the US as a young child.  Many European children were sent because of widespread poverty after WWII.  Nick’s older sister was left with her father, and began searching for Nick when she was an adult.

The video is the story of her search.  Her nephew was a filmmaker of documentaries and filmed her as she looked for Nick.  Because of the length of the film, there will be no short program.
