The Italian Heritage Month Committee is pleased to celebrate the 11th year of October as Italian Heritage Month. A kick-off event is planned on Thursday, October 1, 2009 at the State House in Boston. Nurses Hall will be filled with those celebrating the many contributions by Italians and Italian Americans throughout the centuries. Participants will be eagerly awaiting the reading of the Governor's Proclamation, the musical performances and heartfelt words from local dignitaries. This event is free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you there. But, remember that October 1st is just the beginning! The month-long celebration will have events planned throughout the State and it will not be difficult to find something to please the diverse tastes of all those who join us in celebrating this year. Celebrate and explore the history, culture, language, genius, artistry, and centuries of discoveries and accomplishments. Please see www.ItalianHeritageMonth.com for a complete list of events.
