Dr. Jay Butterfield presented the 2017 Italian - American of the Year award to Ann Marie Petrone. Ann Marie said "It was both surprising and humbling to hear my name called as the recipient. As a charter member of LICS since 1999, it has been an honor to serve as Hospitality Chairperson, Board Director and member of the Newsletter Team. Thank you LICS for this wonderful recognition!"
Above with Ann Marie are her family members: Melina Roda, Earl & Sylvia (Guerra) Hardwerk, and James & Kathleen Guerra.
