On behalf of your Administrative team,   "Auguri" to those who celebrate this day as Columbus day and/or to those that celebrate this as Italian-American heritage day. Either way, we celebrate with you and honor all members of our inclusive community. 

 

Columbus Day is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492, and Columbus Day 2018 occurs on Monday, October 8. It was unofficially celebrated in a number of cities and states as early as the 18th century, but did not become a federal holiday until 1937. For many, the holiday is a way of both honoring Columbus’ achievements and celebrating Italian-American heritage
