Our next event is the NPCC annual homage to its members. Historically held around St. Martin’s Day (November 11), this event is based around the magusto festival where groups of friends and family gather around camp fires throughout Portugal to roast chestnuts, drink the new wine, sing and dance.
O Mensal for October 2012 is here!
I’d like to welcome our new subscribers and let everyone know that our newsletter and most of our publications are bilingual. As a general rule we usually place the portuguese text first followed by the english, but occasionally english and portuguese appear together – Miguel’s golf article is an example.
A small team of people have helped me bring this month’s Mensal to life – Miguel Araujo, Mark Ganhao, Maya Ganhao, Sergio Matos, Dianne Rainho, Rafael Roberto, Portugal Groceries and Nova Era in Ajax. Thank you all for your help with the words, photos, printing and distribution.
October 27th @ 6pm
