Vaughan Soccer Club celebrates Santafest, the holidays, and a time of giving...

vaughan santafest parade 2018 1ON SUNDAY NOVEMBER 25, VSC TOOK PART IN THE ANNUAL SANTAFEST PARADE HELD IN MAPLE. BIG THANKS TO THE VAUGHAN AZZURRI GIRLS AND BOYS SQUADS WHO PARTICIPATED!

The parade started with a large crowd that welcomed us onto the streets of Maple. We were all taken away by their enthusiasm and excitement.

Big thanks to the Board of Directors, coaches, managers, parent volunteers and players in attendance. We appreciate these moments together, building life-long habits, and relationships, having fun off the field celebrating our community event!!!

‘We truly had a wonderful experience. The energy from the crowds of Maple transferred onto the teams, as they handed out soccer bags and candy-canes to the crowd. The smiles and cheers the team received from the crowd was overwhelming and contagious, encouraging the team to high five the crowd all the way to end!' said Sandy Polombo [VSC Registrar in attendance].

There are many people we would like to thank for all their hard work in making this day happen:
Thank you to the Vaughan Soccer Club, especially Sandra Colica, Tony Depalma and Joe Cordi for organizing the event. Much appreciation to John Fidalgo, Sandy Polombo, Frank Cerninara, Joe Mario, Tony Posca, Gary and more!!! All who took the time to participate, walk with the teams and for their commitment to our youth - on and off the field! Thank you to all for their participation, their hard work, and for making this day a fun time for all.

We would like to thank SantaFest for providing us this opportunity to gather together. Their hard work and dedication to Maple is much appreciated. They provided us with a safe, organized and fun-filled event that created great memories that will last forever. Your efforts and dedication went beyond our expectations; we look forward to next year's SantaFest.

A special thanks to Debra DiPaola for all that she does!!! We also thank Vaughan Soccer’s membership and our Equipment Director John Battistella for organizing and donating our old uniforms! Feedback like this makes us SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO PROUD to be Vaughan AZZURRI!!!

Letter of appreciation to Vaughan Soccer Club:

Dear Vaughan Soccer Club,
I have recently returned from another amazing mission trip to Zambia. Faith's Orphan Fund is the organization I volunteer with each year and I am very grateful for the generous uniform donations that VSC has graciously provided. I can't explain the excitement on the children's faces when they see me starting to pull out the colourful jerseys and the shorts. Even the socks are so greatly appreciated. You see, for them, this jersey may be the only new clothing they receive all year and the jerseys last and last. They wash well, don't fade, and dry fast so even when they get caught in the rain, (rainy season is 6 months of the year) they know their shirts will be dry in no time. Also the drawstring bags were a huge success, everyone wanted one! I am including several photos of the older students who were thrilled with their gifts and some photos of the younger children in the village.

A little means a lot!

Please notice the excitement on their faces and some are apprehensive, not smiling because I am the first white person they had seen and were a little unsure of what to make of me. LOL! You will notice that in the photos of the boys before (dressed in usual wear, often they wear no shoes because they have no shoes) and then after with the new clean shorts and jersey, they loved the idea of wearing socks too!!! It was so cute. We had to help them put the socks on since they never had any before. It actually gets down to 5 degrees at night sometimes and their little feet get chilled to the bone. I never thought about Africa as being cold but it happens. Even jackets and hats are worn if they have them. When you see line ups of children, that is them waiting to receive something. They LOVE playing "football" and when the rest of the boxes of clothes arrive, they are going to be absolutely ecstatic. The young man in the red jersey, Elijah, is the lead student at the training center. He was so happy to be wearing a new jersey I think he wore it every day for the whole week!

Thank you very much for making so many young people happy with receiving a gift. It is always nice to see jerseys on students when I first arrive. They come up asking for one more. Usually they are asking for their younger siblings. Often with the younger children, the elders of the village will help to distribute the items as they see the greatest needs be met first. The needs are many and the families are large. Thank you for blessing them with your gently used uniforms and equipment.

In loving service,
Debra DiPaola

Vaughan Soccer Club's year-end REP Banquet is one of the loudest and best banquets to attend! The party shook the banquet hall floor to the late hours of the night, it was a good time for all! A long tradition of Vaughan Soccer, this banquet celebration is a great way to get everyone together, one last time... Due to our increasing popularity/membership numbers, we celebrate the end of the outdoor season with 2 banquets. The year-end-banquet for our older youth was held on September 8th. Exactly one week later, on Friday September 15th the final banquet celebration was held for the younger age groups. 

This year's REP/Competitive Banquet parties rocked and shook the dance floor - literrally!!! ...and with Veriation Music creating an event atmosphere like no other, the evening started with the perfect music for our members, who were dancing and celebrating with delight. A special thank-you to Riviera Parque Banquet Hall for creating a magnificent first-class environment providing high quality service and a memorable experience for all. 

In attendance at Vaughan Soccer’s year-end-celebration were Vaughan Soccer's Board of Directors, Staff, VSC's technical leaders, and several City of Vaughan Council members.

Special thanks goes out to everyone who helped with the organizing, planning and seeing these events through this year! This banquet continues to be a memorable event and a great way to end this 35th anniversary celebration year.
