Sen. Seminara: October is Italian American Heritage Month in CT

Sen. Lisa Seminara today applauded the governor for proclaiming October as “Italian American Heritage Month” in the State of Connecticut.

The governor’s proclamation notes how prominent figures – including former Gov. Ella Grasso, Geno Auriemma, Frank Pepe, and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro are just a few of the many notable and accomplished Italian Americans affiliated with Connecticut.

“As a proud Italian American, I thank the governor for recognizing the significant contributions that families of Italian descent have made to our state and country,” Sen. Seminara said. “In my family and in countless other families, Italian-Americans have achieved the American Dream through perseverance. This month, we plan to celebrate and highlight that rich history and those inspiring stories.”
