WEST HAVEN, April 29, 2020 — The West Haven Columbus Day Committee will present its Italian American of the Year award at the city’s 22nd annual Columbus Day Celebration on Friday, Oct. 9.

The honor is bestowed each year on an Italian resident or couple who epitomizes service in the city’s robust Italian American community.

Accompanied by Italian music, members of the West Haven Italian American Civic Association will escort the 2020 awardee to the steps of City Hall at 11:30 a.m. for the special recognition.

Committee members and residents will join the recipient to fete the Italian navigator and observe their heritage with dignitaries and descendants of folks from the old country clad in red, white and green.
