The Lackawanna County Commissioners conducted an Italian flag raising and proclamation at the County Courthouse on Oct. 1.  Among the several county Italian organizations present was the Keystone Chapter UNICO National. Started at the request of the Keystone Chapter in 2012, this has become a traditional start of celebrating October as Italian Heritage and Culture Month.

Pictured are the Keystone UNICO members with County Commissioners from left: Michele McDade, holding the “October is Italian Heritage and Culture Month in Lackawanna County” proclamation; Marilyn Vitali; Tom Carlucci; Commissioner Jerry Notarianni; Mark McDade, PA II District Governor; Commissioner Pat O’Malley; Ann Summa; Mary Rinaldi, and Jim Mack.
