Garden for Franca Ciccolo

Sunday 24 May 2015

A garden for our long-time friend in Italy, Franca Ciccolo, who died in 2014, was inaugurated in the village. The garden, which has been marked by a simple plaque, is between the volunteer house and the small path that leads down to the Corner of Silence, which was one of Franca’s favourite spots in the village. A number of WAS-NS residents recalled their friendship with Franca and her years of dedicated service to the Village.

The video, recorded by Nadine Nashef, and uploaded to Vimeo thanks to Rosita Poloni, can be viewed at https://vimeo.com/130528051.
