The Columbus Day Association of Lackawanna County was founded in 1909 with the sole purpose of honoring Christopher Columbus as the discoverer of the “New World.” The association conducts four general meetings each year. The 110th anniversary dinner will be conducted at Fiorelli’s Catering in Peckville on Sunday, Oct. 13.
This year’s “Men of the Year” are Atty. Daniel Penetar and Dr. Martin Penetar. Membership is open to men with Italian ethnicity and sound moral character. Any such man interested in joining should contact Joe Fazio at 570-241-1691.
