National Italian Heritage Month

October of each year is National Italian Heritage Month. While my married last name is no longer Italian, I am proud of my heritage. It helped mold the adult I am today. I come from a line of truck drivers, beauticians, stay-at-home mothers, and police officers. The generations before me made sacrifices so I could grow up in a big family with memorable Sunday dinners that always included Grandma’s gravy and meatballs.

Throughout the month of October, I’ll be highlighting different Italians and Americans of Italian descent that have made a positive impact on New Jersey. There are many Americans of Italian descent that have made incredibly important contributions to New Jersey as well as the nation. I hope you enjoy my posts this month. May they entertain and enlighten.

Mangia bene, ridi spesso, ama molto.
