To Antonio and Aurora Frattin – I am so sorry to hear about this tragedy tonight. I can only hope that you and your family will be alright.
A bit of back story about the Frattin family legacy:
On July 9, 1956 Antonio immigrated to Canada on the Roma ship that landed at Pier 21 in Halifax. Travel took two weeks. Aurora immigrated to Canada on November 9, 1956 on the Homeric ship.
As they grew up during war time, education for Antonio & Aurora was limited. As such, they learned from their own experiences and hard work.
Italian Bakery started as a family business and still remains family involved. They have full dedication of their children who possess the same commitment and enthusiasm as their parents in the continued success of the business. Antonio & Aurora have developed a partnership with their children.
