Italian American Club Honors Three Women

   A lot of tradition at the Italian American Civic Association tonight at the 76 year old club honored three of its most venerable auxiliary members. Ada Guardino, Julee Gorri and Josephine Grieco were thanked for their service to the club and the community.
    I  was pleased to appear on behalf of the citizens of Watertown to present the trio with certificates and appreciation. This was my last such presentation and its always been an honor to help honor these dedicated servants.
    The IACA is a pillar of the neighborhood and this fall looks forward to bringing the Bravo Fest back to the Fairgrounds Arena.

Congratulations ladies and thank you for your years of dedication and hard work for the organization .

I suspect this was not your last such presentation.

How is it that the Eye talians are able to keep their club going strong but the BRV had to sell to a profitable not for profit? And the NSIL had to trade their very desirable commercial location and building (which is about the size of a million dollar drug or dollar store), for a handful of magic beans.

Yet...when it came time for the elections it seems the "club" vote was strong the other way? Interesting how we opine for the IACA but during the recent election, their candidates....got crushed.

Nice way to ruin a story about 3 ladies that have contributed so much of their time for others. But, that does lend to the negativity so prevalent on this blog.

1256 One thing about this blog. It's often the only place such events are noted. The negativity theme is a fiction promoted by the Times and TV 7. Too bad they don't cover anything nice.

WDT jumped all over Clayton for dumping sewage into the river - too bad the reporting wasn't factual. It don't pay to check facts - just to sell papers.

And recognition of true do-gooders is not news. News is when the monied folk are recognized.

Ah, the scarcity lovers up in frost-bite New York.

Big freakin' deal Jeff. So you note events like this and then let it turn in to more political bashing. Maybe you should stick to the daily mail headlines.

You may think the negativity is fiction promoted by local media but that may be wishful thinking on your part.
