October is great for many reasons, it is Italian-American Heritage and Culture month, which has been formerly celebrated in the United States since 1989 thru a Presidential Proclamation by then George H. W. Bush and the United States Congress to honor the achievements and contributions of Italian immigrants and their descendants living in the U.S.

Whereas, since, each October, millions of Americans of Italian descent come together to celebrate and share our heritage, culture and reflect on families’ histories, traditions, values and our communities enrichments over the years.

In New York City, we participate in the Annual Columbus Day Parade, which the Columbus Citizens Foundation does an amazing job organizing and the Sunday prior, we  hold a Ceremonial Wreath Laying at the tall statue in Columbus Circle, a symbol of pride for our community.

The 77th Columbus Day Parade will be held on Monday, October 11, 2021 and DSNY will have a marching contingent led by Honorary Grand Marshal, Assistant Chief Anthony Pennolino.

Unfortunately, this years 2021 Dinner Dance Gala has been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.
