Captivated by the tastes of Sicily, community members came out en masse to support the first-ever Sicilian Cultural Festival held to benefit the Isabelle Hunt Memorial Public Library in Pine.

After eating caponata (eggplant appetizer), arange (rice balls), two kinds of Italian meatballs, stewed pork and Sicilian pizza, folks still had to save room for dessert -- ricotta cheese and chocolate chip cannolis and casata, a moist white Italian cake served at weddings, Easter and Christmas.

The sold-out event raised approximately $1,750 according to event master of ceremonies Mario Belvedere.

The event and was held at the Rimside Grill in Pine, and catered by chef Gerardo Moceri who owns Cucina Paradiso.
