Centro de Dia Santo André Avelino

Centro de Dia Santo André Avelino is one of our Community’s gathering points for the elderly, and it continues to bring joy to those who gather at Luso Africa in Primrose weekly for a great meal, but more importantly to spend some time with friends. This past month was a very busy one for the group, with two big celebrations being held.


The group celebrated Madeira Day on the 6th of July, with the Luso hall being decorated to the tee to remember the Pearl of the Atlantic, and many of those present wearing traditional Madeirense clothes. The meal served was the very traditional Carne vinho e alhos with Milho frito and the poncha was certain to make an appearance. There was even a Santana House Cake.
Earlier, on the 26th of June, they had celebrated the Festa de São Pedro.
Sardinha & potatoes was the meal served, “como não podia deixar de ser”! Approximately 80 people performed the traditional marches, in a procession that started outside the hall. It was certainly a beautiful fun day for all those involved.
