Subject: The “Big Reunion” in Brognaturo , Italy in 2010

 Dear fellow Brognaturesi

 The purpose of this letter is to communicate that the Association “Brognaturo in the Heart”, together with the co-operation of all the Municipal Councilors for the town of Brognaturo , and the Organizing Committee for the Feast of for Our Lady of Consolation are planning and organizing the “Big Reunion” of 2010.  The “Big Reunion” will take place in Brognaturo , Italy from August 23rd to September 6th. 

 What does this “Big Reunion” consist of?

We are in the process of inviting everyone who is Brognaturesi or a descendent of Brognaturesi immigrants, living in all corners of the world to attend the Big Reunion.  We are trying to create a central meeting place where the sons and daughters of Brognaturo can come together with their families to either revisit their hometown or visit their ancestor’s hometown for the very first time.  The Great Reunion will be a wonderful opportunity to visit our little town of Brognaturo and to take part in planned events and festivities.  This event will provide everyone with the opportunity to connect with loved ones, family and friends, and to visit locations in the surrounding area that were part of their childhood or youth when growing up in Brognaturo, or part of their ancestors lives prior to immigration.  It will be an opportunity to meet old friends and create new friendships, and connect will fellow Brognaturesi from around the world.

 The idea of the “Big Reunion” began in the hearts of Brognaturesi, and we continue the organization with great love and devotion.  Many people welcomed the idea when they first heard about the event.   We are counting on and anticipating great participation from our fellow townspeople.  In the month of January additional information regarding the upcoming reunion, events and manifestations that will take place during the period of the reunion will be posted on our site “Brognaturo in the Heart”

  For additional information feel free to contact us by telephone, e-mail or by mail.  The required contact information is provided below in the contents of this correspondence. 

 Please accept this correspondence as a formal invitation to you, your immediate and extended family to attend the “Great Reunion” in Brognaturo in August of 2010.  Unfortunately with immigrants scattered across the globe, it is impossible to obtain everyone’s address.  We would appreciate if you could assist us by forwarding any addresses that you may have in your possession.
