Support the Garibaldi Meucci Museum with your Brick
Become the owner of a part of history by supporting a wonderful initiative started at the Garibaldi Meucci Museum in Staten Island. The museum is in the process of constructing a commemorative brick walkway in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Unification of Italy. More than 250 of the 1089 bricks forming the walkway are already engraved and in place. There is still time to show your support for the museum, have your name engraved and go down in history, as it becomes part of brilliant project.
On Saturday, November 5th at 2pm, at the Garibaldi Meucci Museum, the President/CEO Thomas A. Lupo together with the Co-Chairs Joseph Sciame and Keith Wilson, the Director of the museum Michela Traetto and the Board of Commissioners, will hold a dedication ceremony of the museum’s Commemorative Brick Walkway. The ceremony will take place at 420 Tompkins Avenue in Staten Island.
This ceremony will be preceded by the 23rd Annual Fundraiser Brunch held at Li Greci’s Staaten located at 697 Forest Ave in Staten Island. The fundraiser Brunch is held in honor of Salvattore Lanzilotta as he completes his term as State President of the Grand Lodge of New York of the Order Sons of Italy in America, as well as John Dabbene, long-time Chairman and President/CEO of the museum, whom is being honored posthumously for the incalculable contributions he made to the perpetuation and expansion of the museum.
