Dee Viscardi was awarded the LICS
2018 Italian-American of the Year award at our December holiday dinner.




Dee was recognized by the award committee for her years of service to LICS. She has planned and directed trips, activities, ladies luncheons and more for our membership. Through Dee, many members were able to explore New York City, travel abroad, enjoy regional Italian cultural events, and share fellowship with LICS members and other Italian-Americans that they otherwise would not have experienced. Dee has worked tirelessly on behalf of LICS, and the entire LICS membership is thankful for her service.

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.
