A taste of Italy – No Passports Required

by Monika Templeman, LWRWC Publicity Co-Chair
On Monday, August 3, 2015, ladies from LWRWC continued their virtual gourmet travels by sampling the delicious flavors of Italy at Valentino Pizzeria and Trattoria on Coopers Creek Blvd in Bradenton.


The ambience was warm and inviting and complemented the lighthearted mood as old and new friends gathered to “break bread.” Appropriately, our large table was adorned with baskets of delicious bread that we learned actually comes from NJ and is freshly baked in Florida.

The tempting menu featured traditional Italian dishes (including soups, salads, pastas, chicken or eggplant parmesan, chicken Marsala, to name a few) and the service was wonderful. We particularly appreciated that everything was authentic and made to order, making Valentino a great venue to enjoy fun, friendship and the taste of Italy.

As a community service, the LWRWC sponsors a garage sale twice a year at the request of the HOA’s of Greenbrook, Summerfield, and Riverwalk.  In order to participate in the sale, residents pay a small fee of $5 to cover the cost of advertising,

Particpants display their “for sale” items in their own driveway and keep all proceeds.  You must live in Riverwalk, Summerfield, or Greenbrook to “sell”, but anyone can “buy”.

The 2015 Fall Garage Sale is scheduled for Saturday, October 17. Permits will be available in Town Hall starting  September 1.   For more information, contact Frankie Bailey at ==> FBailey@lwrwc.org or  Linda Slapak at ==> LSlapak@lwrwc.org.
