Our Organization wanted to participate in this wonderful event for our community and to share our Italian Heritage with others. The different Venetian Masks decoration celebrate the Carnival of Venice, which is an annual festa which is held in Venice, Italy. The different social classes hid their identity by wearing these masks. More than 30,000 visitors travel to Venice each day for the Carnival.
The people who helped make the decorations for the Italian American Heritage Tree were: Linda Filice, JoAnn Ghiggeri - Bjornstad, Ken Borelli, Rich and Gwen Dalton, Laura Giorgi, Rachelle Gorini, Tony Prada Filice, Samuel Prada Filice, Roger Bjornstad, Sharon Saia, Joanna Russo, and Mr. and Mrs. Pedretti.
