Dear Italian Community and Friends of Italian Culture:
We are writing on behalf of the New Castle Italian Heritage Foundation located in the
Italian Community of New Castle, Delaware (Shawtown, at the town’s West End).

We are pleased to announce that DUAL magnificent monument stones honoring our
forefathers will be soon erected, and are planning a dedication to take place on Sunday,
June 11, 2017, 10:30 a.m. at 8th and Young Streets Park in New Castle, DE.

The New Castle Italian Immigrant Memorial is etched with the many Italian immigrants’
names which brought their Catholic faith and Italian traditions to America.

This Memorial Monument is our tribute to the many courageous men and women named

The dedication will include a short speech, blessing of the monument, raising of both the
