President's Message

Si poteva solo sperare che con gli ultimi 2 tristi anni di questa pandemia, i segni di cose migliori a venire sono nel nostro futuro. (One could only hope with the past 2 dismal years of this pandemic, signs of better things ahead are in our future.)

As incoming President of the Italian Heritage Foundation, I look forward to and cannot wait to see our continued efforts in providing scholarships to the children of our community.

It is an honor to work alongside such a distinguished group of board members in continuing the mission set forth by some of our original IHF board members (Peter Formicola, Donn Calabrese, Joseph Floriano).

In my seven years as a board member of the Italian Heritage Foundation I cannot express to you how proud our board members are and the hard work that goes into each event to ensure we raise the necessary funds to provide these scholarships.

We take great pride in our heritage and hope you will understand the passion each one of us takes in giving back to the current and future education needs of the children in our community.

Thank you all for your continued support of our foundation and hope to see you at our 2022 IHF events.

Auguro ai tuoi amici e alle tue famiglie un sano anno nuovo! (In closing I am hopeful we have good times ahead to drink, dine, laugh, and gather with our friends and family!)
