Summer in Little Italy

This summer I was offered the opportunity to team up with Crown Jewel Events and work with the Little Italy Merchants Associations on all of their summer events they put on for the community of Mulberry Street. The summer kicked off with a ribbon cutting ceremony on May 28th, 2010 to open the Mulberry Street Pedestrian Mall. We were honored to have NY State Senate nominee, Tony Avella and NY City Council member Margaret Chin there to mark this day with us. We had the President of Little Italy Merchants Associations, Ralph Tramontana start with a few words to the public and their supporters. At this time we presented Mr. Avella with the 2010 award for all his dedication and support to Little Italy. Following this we listen to a fun selection played by Little Italy's own Red Mike Festival Band.
Take a look at some of the pictures from the day:

On Memorial Day, May 31st, 2010 we honored to plan the Wreath Laying Ceremony remember all of our fallen Veterans and also to honor our current men and women serving our country. This somber event took place in the court yard of Most Precious Blood Church where guests were greeted with a program and flower for them to place in memory of a special veteran. The American and National Anthems performed by Ms Giadi Valenti, followed by a special performance of color guard by Marine Corps. We then had a mass and the reading of the names. Closing this blessed ceremony was another performance by Italian- American singer and song writer Giada Valenti. She was truly recognized for her amazing voice and great stage presence. On this day we remember what Memorial Day should truly be about.
