THE ORDER SONS OF ITALY IS THE OLDEST AND LARGEST ORGANIZATION OF ITALIAN AMERICAN MEN AND WOMEN IN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA
Sons of Italy New Jersey Foundation
Celebrates Columbus Day 2011 with
Italian Heritage Cultural Festa
The Sons of Italy Foundation Inc.
honored two Italian-Americans
at their 3rd Annual Columbus
Day Festa on Saturday October
15, 2011 during the ceremonies
at the Columbus Statue at
Cooper River Park, Pennsauken,
NJ.
The two appreciated were
Judy Franchi-Wynters, recently
retired Acting Director of
Camden County Division of
Special Events for 28 years along
with Philip Sconyo, current
National Trustee who had held
numerous notation, state and filial lodge positions and a member of the Order for 35 years.
“It is a great pleasure to recognize these two award recipients. Both who exemplify their dedication to not only their profession but to their community as
Italian Americans” said Louis R. Santoro, OSIA NJ State President.
The annual celebration, held to honor Christopher Columbus, has grown each year. This year was no exception with hundreds in attendance. Everyone present
enjoyed Italian-themed food, vendors and novelties, bocce and soccer tournaments, live entertainment, including Italian singers Moreno Fruzetti, Ron DiRoma,
Domenica Scala and his old-time Italian-American band Crazyfish, and the Amici Opera Group. The Festa featured roman guard re-enactors, children’s puppet
shows and a wine garden.
“We’re pleased to offer an opportunity for festival attendees to experience a real-Italian Festa, without having to leave New Jersey. We’re proud to join together
and do our part to promote, showcase, and preserve the Italian heritage and culture with festival attendees. No one was disappointed as the event was one for
the entire family,” said Nicola Cinalli, Chair, 2011 Festa Committee.
The proceeds of last week’s Charity Walk, held at Cooper River Park, and the festa will benefit the organization’s philanthropic activities including scholarships to
high school seniors and college students, medical research and supporting the preservation of Italian American heritage and culture.
“Our celebration this year is special in many ways. We will not only pay tribute to Cristofaro Colombo who discovered our great country 519 years ago on
the month declared Italian –American Heritage month but celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Grand Lodge of New Jersey being founded in 1911 along with
honoring two Italian Americans who made significant contributions to the community, charity and have fostered positive image of Italians in this country.” State
President Santoro stated in his remarks to all in attendance at the festa.
Past State President Louis Cappelli Sr, was the emcee for the morning ceremonies. Mr. Cappelli honored Judy Franchi -Wynters by presenting her with a plaque
for all the tireless work she has given the people of the county and the Sons of Italy whenever needed.
President Santoro then gave a special recognition to Philip Sconyo, OSIA National Trustee. President
Santoro honored Sconyo for his many years of dedicated service and hard work on behalf of the Italian
American community and community at large. “Phil is a proud Italian American and has performed
invaluable service to OSIA NJ and National. He has held many offices including twice president of the then
Mount Ephraim Lodge, State Financial Officer, State Orator, President of the Society of Fire Prevention
Engineers and currently OSIA National trustee. Your dedication and loyalty is sincerely admired and
greatly appreciated by the entire Italian American community.”
In humbly thanking the Foundation, Sconyo states that he is surprisingly honored to be chosen and he felt
that there were many others more deserving than he. He went on to thank his lovely wife Colleen and his
family that were in attendance.

President's Message
by Louis R. Santoro
State President
Order Sons of Italy in America
Grand Lodge of New Jersey Now that the summer break is behind us, I trust that everyone had a safe and
pleasurable summer with your family and friends. It is now time for most filial
lodges to begin to meet again and for our administration to get involved by
continuing to grow our Order, promote our Italian heritage and attend many
functions you will see in this issue.
Over the summer, in August, our delegation attended the OSIA National
Convention in Orlando, Florida. The New Jersey delegation consisted of me
along with Vice Presidents Dominic Pucci, Robert Bianchi, Ralph Capaccio
and State Historian Sal Gambino. National Delegates Louis Cappelli Sr. and
Sam Fumosa, Past National President and National Foundation Chairperson
Vince Sarno, National Trustee Phil Sconyo, National Foundation Trustee
Angelo Bianchi, National CSJ Vice President Grace Olivo and National CSJ
Recording Secretary Rosemary Federik. Though I have attended many National
Conventions in the past, this obviously being the first as President. It was a
great honor to be able to chair the “Good and Future Welfare Committee” in
Orlando. I relished the opportunity to meet with my peers across the country
and discuss issues that concern us and what is necessary to see our Order
prosper. I would also like to thank my delegation for their support and respect
that they not only showed me but others at the convention. We once again
demonstrated that New Jersey will confront any issues that may arise and
discuss them together and not only insure what is best for our Order but what
is best for New Jersey. We confirmed that the Grand Lodge of New Jersey is
united and will continue to support the principals and values of our Order. It
was my extreme pleasure and honor to lead them in Orlando.
The most important issue to come out of the National Convention was the fact
that Joseph DiTrapani of New York was re-elected as our National President
for another two years and look forward to working with President DiTrapani
and his administration as he leads our Order, until we meet again in 2013.
Members of the New Jersey delegation elected to National positions were:
Past State Historian Salvatore Gambino was elected as National Historian,
Phil Sconyo elected, once again, as National Trustee, Vince Sarno- President
of Sons of Italy Foundation, Angelo Bianchi - Sons of Italy Foundation Trustee,
Grace Olivo – National CSJ Vice President and Rosemary Federik – National CSJ
Recording Secretary.
An extremely proud moment occurred at the convention, when at a luncheon,
Past State President and National Historian Sam Fumosa was honored along
with Linda Abronzino with the Vincenzo Sellaro Award for their many years
of service to the Order in leadership positions at the filial lodge, state and
national levels. It was my honor to say a few words about Brother Sam and
recognize him for receiving this distinguished award. Though his lovely wife
Rita could not attend, it was through the miracle of technology that Sam
was able to “Skype” her on a laptop so she could see and hear the touching
ceremony. In addition, the Grand Lodge of New Jersey will travel to Sam’s
lodge in West Orange, NJ, this month, to recognize him along with the Lodge
President Tony Benevento, officers and members of the Padre Pio Lodge.
As you will see in this issue, we have just completed our 2011 Columbus Day
Festa. It was a tremendous day as we celebrated a great man, Cristoforo
Colombo with a fun filled family event of live music, Italian food and novelties.
The main theme of this years Festa was Italian culture. This was not more
evident than the presence of the Roman Guard re-enactors, children’s puppet
show and Opera singers. I would like to personally thank Co-Chairs for the
2011 event, Nicola Cinalli and Agnes Grasso along with their committee
members for a splendid event. I am sure with Nick and Agnes leading the way
once again, next year’s event will be bigger and better.
One of the proudest moments as your State President occurred this month as
Governor Chris Christie invited me, my Vice Presidents, Grand Lodge officers,
along with various Lodge Presidents to the governor’s mansion in Princeton,
to honor Italian American Heritage Month which was signed into legislature
by then Governor Jon Corzine, in 2009. The event was well received as the
fifty in attendance, listened to Governor Christie speak about his growing up
in an Italian household with a Sicilian mother and the strong influence she had
on him then and still today, though she has passed away. The Governor then
answered various questions concerning Italian-Americans today.
Finally, I would like to stress the fact that my officers and I are always open
to any concerns and issues you or your lodge may have. As in previous
administrations, we will continue to have an “open door” policy with the filial
lodges but you need to keep us abreast of any issues that may arise, so that
we may be able to assist. No lodge is too far to travel as my Vice Presidents,
officers and I are here for you.
At his time on behalf of my Vice Presidents and State Officers, Cristina and
I would like to wish you a most joyous Thanksgiving. And to quote Franklin
Roosevelt, Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be
expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from
the lips, and shows itself in deeds. HERALD - ORDER SONS OF ITALY IN AMERICA - GRAND LODGE OF NEW JERSEY - November 2011

Marlton Lodge #2315
This summer, Marlton Lodge #2315 participated in the annual Marlton 4th of July Parade. Twenty members of our Lodge participated in the march and distributed
1,000 American flags to the spectators along the parade route. Each flag had an attached message promoting our Lodge. We marched behind our Lodge banner
to great applause and recognition by the community.
Our last meeting before the summer break was our Annual BBQ Dinner and Scholarship Meeting. We had a great attendance and everyone enjoyed the picnic
fare. This year the Thomas DeGrandis Scholarship was awarded to two area high school seniors, Chelsea Canavan and Matthew Maratea, whose parents are
members of our Lodge. A highlight of the evening was the attendance of prior scholarship recipient, Ryan Daniels, who thanked everyone for his award and
updated us on his progress at Penn State.
At this meeting we also initiated four new members into our Lodge. That resulted in a cumulative total of ten new members initiated into our Lodge since the
beginning of the year.
We held our Annual Pig Roast Dinner on September 24th of this year and again it was a great success. There were over 115 attendees, and everyone enjoyed
the roast pig sandwiches with all of the homemade salads and desserts. The Pig Roast Dinner is always a major fundraiser for the Lodge and this year was not
an exception.
The Lodge again participated in the Annual Evesham Fall Festival held on October 1st. In addition to selling Italian themed shirts and hats, we more importantly
promoted our Lodge. We were able to talk and interact with many attendees, some old friends and acquaintances, but just as important, many prospective
members. Most gratifying was that at the next meeting five of the people we spoke with at the Fall Festival were in attendance and became applicants for
membership! Our continued presence in the community is essential and does have its rewards.
A major fundraiser that we sponsor for the support of our charities is our biennial Fashion Show Luncheon and Basket Auction. This year’s event was held on
October 16th at the Ramblewood Country Club. The fashions were by Marlene’s Dress Shop of Collingswood, NJ and BOC Productions. Over 145 people were in
attendance. Our thanks to the Fashion Show Committee: Annette DiPaolo; Terry Zito; Donna Gatti; and Charlotte Muoio, for organizing a successful event that
was enjoyed by all who attended.
In November we have one event that we would like to share with our filial lodges: a bus trip to Lancaster, PA to see the Sight and Sound Theatre Christmas Show.
The trip includes some outlet shopping and dinner at The Good & Plenty Restaurant in Lancaster. Please mark your calendars and we look forward to seeing
you! For information, if interested in attending, please call Annette DiPaolo, 856.983.2329.

Alighieri-Garbaldi Lodge #494
The Oldest, Active Lodge in New Jersey
By
Frank J. Nardi, Sr.
Lodge 494 is the oldest, active lodge in the State of New Jersey, and a very proud one!
The Dante Alighieri Lodge 494 was founded in March of 1916. In May of 1917, the Nuovaanita Garibaldi Lodge #835 was chartered, in 1948 Lodges
494 and 835 merged and became the Alighieri-Garibaldi Lodge 494 with its first headquarters in Camden. Its present headquarters are at the
Collingswood Community Center in Collingswood.
Each October we host a Columbus Day Dinner Dance and pay tribute to an outstanding Italian –American person of the year for their character
and leadership in the Italian community at large. This year’s Italian-American Person of the year was Nunzio Patruano, owner and chef of Nunzio’s
Ristorante Rustico in Collingswood. An award also goes to a lodge member who has worked in a capacity of supporting the lodge itself. This year’s
“Al Mancini “award” recipient was Frank J. Nardi, Sr. a trustee and program director of lodge 494.
The proceeds from the dinner dance, sponsors and donations are channeled to our charitable foundations which include Cooley’s anemia,
Arthritis, Alzheimer’s and Alicia Rose Victorious Foundations. We also provide scholarships to deserving seniors of several area high schools. The
Lodge distributes food baskets to disadvantaged families; we host a lovely Christmas party for the special children of New Sharon School, and
support the empty stocking program for a deserving family each Christmas. We actually prepare and serve Thanksgiving dinner at a Senior Citizen
Housing Complex
(Rohrer Towers II) in Collingswood.
Lodge 494 has around 100 members and each month we have a catered dinner before our actual meeting; we average 50 members per dinner
meeting. At our meeting we begin with the Pledge of Allegiance followed by the Italian Flag Salute in Italian and we play the Italian National
Anthem at the October (Italian Heritage Month) meeting. The anthem always excites the crowd.
Not only is there delicious food & fellowship, the lodge also has a program every monthly dinner meeting!
Our programs have included:
• Author John Oliano who talked about his book “Italian Family Cooking and Wine Pairing”
• The author, Peter D. Cimini, traveled from Connecticut to speak on this novel:” The Secret Sins of Opi”
• Local Philadelphia Broadcast Veteran Lorraine Ranalli, who spoke of her South Philly upbringing in her entertaining book “Gravy Wars :
South Philly Foods, Feuds and Atty-tudes”
• Local opera singer, Ennio Brugnolo, who spoke of his singing career and experiences with Rome Opera Company.
• Another vocalist (and lodge member) Frank J. Nardi, Sr. who gave a mini-history of Italian opera and his performance experiences with the
Opera Company of Philadelphia.
• Camden Diocesan Priest, Fr. Ronald Falotico, talked about Italian immigration to South Camden , We also took a short trip to Our Lady of
Mt. Carmel church in South Camden where Fr. Falotico Celebrated a Sunday mass in Italian!
One of our lodge members Joe DiAngelis, a professional French Horn player, spoke of his career playing with the Opera Company of Phila
and the Philadelphia Orchestra as well as playing and recording with Frank Sinatra.
We have had a 10 piece Accordion Orchestra play at one of our meetings. That was a big hit!!
We have played portions of the DVD “The Italian Americans”.
During the Winter Season, the lodge celebrates Carnivale at our dinner meeting with prizes given to the best masks.
In lieu of our December meeting, we have a Dinner-Dance at the Collingswood Community Center with a large attendance.
We have a pot-luck covered dish dinner every June.
Each year in October ( Columbus Day Weekend) our lodge joins others in honoring Christopher Columbus in a statue ceremony held in Camden
County at Cooper River in Pennsauken.
On occasion, we pass out questions on all things Italian to test everyone’s knowledge on Italian subjects which produces lively discussion.
Lodge 494 has a very active Bocce team, we also send out a monthly newsletter to all members.
In keeping with Italian tradition, the lodge sponsors a wine competition and wine tasting at an area restaurant.
As you can see we, The Alighieri =Garibaldi Lodge 494 OSIA is very active and continues to carry on our Italian history and culture and traditions for
our members.
I think Columbus, Alighieri and Garibaldi would be proud!!!

2011 Italian News Makers
RICKY CARIOTI, has received a Pulitzer Prize for his photographs of Haiti’s catastrophic earthquake last year. Carioti, whose parents came from Italy,
has been a photographer for The Washington Post since 1998. He has also won awards from the White House News Photographers Association.
JOHN CORIGLIANO, the Pulitzer-Prize composer of operas and orchestral music, had the premiere of his “One Sweet Morning” in September. He
wrote it to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11, by setting to music four poems from different ages and countries that condemn war and
promote peace.
SALVATORE LICITRA, the powerful Italian tenor, once hailed as “the next Pavarotti,” died Sept. 5 in Sicily following a motor scooter accident. He was
43 years old. Mr. Licitra became famous in 2002 when the Metropolitan Opera in NYC chose him as a last-minute replacement for an ailing Pavarotti
in Puccini’s “Tosca,” which was to be Pavarotti’s final performance at the Met.
SERGIO MARCHIONNE, CEO of Chrysler and FIAT, paid off Chrysler’s debt to the U.S. government in May and bought shares that now give FIAT
control of the giant U.S. automaker. Marchionne raised $7.5 billion to pay back the loans, saving Chrysler $300 million a year in interest. The U.S.
government invested $12.5 billion in Chrysler and recovered $11.2 billion. FIAT put up $1.8 billion and shared its technology with the American
company.
FRANK MASCARA, a Democrat from Pennsylvania who served eight years in the U.S. House of Representatives, died of lung cancer July 10 at age 81.
The son of Italian immigrants, Mr. Mascara was previously an accountant and former factory worker. In Congress, he fought to raise the minimum
wage, protect unions and ensure factory workers’ safety. In 2003, he lost his seat to John Murtha when his district was redrawn.
LISA MONACO was confirmed in June by the U.S. Senate as the assistant attorney general for the National Security Division of the Justice Department. She was nominated by President Obama. With this post, the Harvard-educator lawyer takes over “a critical counter-terrorism role, leading
one of the first lines of defense against terrorist attacks and espionage plots,” according to the Washington Post.
LEON PANETTA was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate in June as U.S. Secretary of Defense. Previously, he was President Obama’s CIA director; President Clinton’s chief of staff, and for 16 years, represented California in the U.S. House of Representatives.
GEORGE RANALLI, an award-winning architect in New York City, has had his Valentine #2 Chair selected for an exhibit from the permanent collection
at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan. The exhibit runs through December 31.
THERESA CAPECE ROSEN, the long-time executive secretary of the Italian Historical Society of America, died at age 75 during surgery August 4. Ms.
Rosen successfully lobbied to have the bridge linking Brooklyn and Staten Island named for Giovanni da Verrazzano, who entered New York Bay 85
years before Henry Hudson for whom the river was named.
JIMMY ROSELLI, one of the most popular post-war Italian American singers, died June 30 from heart disease at age 85. A decorated WW II veteran
of the Battle of the Bulge where he earned a Bronze Star, Roselli recorded 35 albums. His biggest hits were “There Must Be A Way,” and “Mala
Femmena.” Unlike Sinatra who could not even speak Italian, Roselli sang and recorded in perfect Neapolitan
FRANCESCA ZAMBELLO, the acclaimed opera director, is the new artistic advisor of the Washington National Opera at the Kennedy Center in the nation’s capital. Zambello has directed for the world’s leading lyric houses as well as on Broadway with a production of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.”
