The Italian Flag Raising was held Saturday September 30th at Town Hall to recognize the month of October as Italian Heritage Month.

Councilman Keith Buscio, Councilman John Bacchione, Council President James Byrnes and I joined with members of the Holiday City / Silver Ridge Park Italian American Club as we presented them with a Proclamation.

Berkeley Township is home to one of the largest Italian American populations in Ocean County.
