Dozens of people from throughout the state gathered at the Old Mill Yacht Club in Howard Beach last week to celebrate Order Sons of Italy Fiorello LaGuardia Lodge’s second annual installation celebration.
Rosemary Ciulla-Frisone was officially sworn in as president. Frisone, one of the group’s founding members, said she hopes to use the position to further awareness about the Sons of Italy and preserve and promote Italian-American culture.
Sons of Italy State President Thomas Lupo said that while the Howard Beach group is new, it has formed a “wonderful community.”
“This is a great area for this,” Lupo said.
