Dedicating Guardia Lombardi Way in Dunmore

There will be a street dedication on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 10 a.m. on Luke Avenue in Bunker Hill with the honorary name of Guardia Lombardi Way. Immigrants from Guardia Lombardi settled in both the Scranton and Dunmore sides of Bunker Hill during the immigration era, and Bunker Hill is one of the largest Guardiese enclaves in North America, along with the Mount Vernon, NY, area and St. Catherine’s, Ontario. Mayor Paige Cognetti will be present.

The honorary designation goes from the intersection of Luke and Ash streets to the Dunmore Borough line.
