On June 1st the Italian Mutual Aid Society, better known as the Roma Hall, members gathered to celebrate the Society’s 90th anniversary. While many members were in attendance, representatives from the City of New Westminster, Councillor Mr. Chuck Puchmayr and local MP the Honorable Member of Parliament Mr. Peter Julian also attended the festivities. The Society was founded in 1929 and has a long history of not only helping it’s members in need but also being active in the community with participation in different events, and giving to charities. As we move forward to many more years, our Society would welcome new members so that we can continue the valued traditions that our Society has to offer. We thank all of the volunteers from our founding members, the Ladies Auxiliary who helped shape our Society from 1960 to 2012, to all of our members who served on Council in various positions and to members who continually over the years dedicate their time, effort and hard work in making our Society better and stronger.
