Italian Heritage Month Committee Plans Anniversary Event on Sept. 28

On Saturday, Sept. 28. the Italian Heritage Month Committee, together with the Consul General of Italy, will be holding a Dinner Dance Fundraiser at Spinelli’s in Lynnfield.  The evening will honor the three Co-Founders of October Italian Heritage Month:  Judge Joseph V. Ferrino Sr. (Retired), Judge Peter W. Agnes Jr., and Comm. Lino Rullo. 

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of October as Italian Heritage Month. The Italian Heritage Month Committee was formed in 1999 and was responsible for the filing and enactment of the legislature declaring October as Italian Heritage Month.  Sen. Robert E. Travaglini, Rep. Salvatore F. Di Masi and Rep. Robert A. De Leo carried the Bill to passage and then-Gov. Argeo Paul Cellucci signed the Bill on Oct. 15, 1999, requiring every sitting governor in the future to proclaim October as Italian Heritage Month.

We hope you will join us as we celebrate 20 years with the Co-Founders of this important legislation at Spinelli’s in Lynnfield,  at 6:30 p.m., Music will be provided by Steve Savio and the Sea Breeze band, Donation: $75 Per Person.
