Please join the Dante Society of Westerly for a presentation on "Italian Immigrant Traditions in Westerly" with Dante member Ed Gradilone! What traditions are still alive and well? What traditions still exist, but have changed? What traditions are no longer part of the Westerly community? Find out the answers to these and other questions in this presentation.
