Mary Scoccolo Celebrates her 75th Year as a SOIA Member

NW Grand Lodge President, Tony Anderson and lodge president, Dan Chicketti present Mary with a special certificate in recognition of her lifetime dedication to the Sons of Italy. Since the National Office does not make 75 year pins, Tony had a special medal created for Mary which you can see around her neck in this photo. Mary started as a member of the Black Diamond Lodge in 1940 then changed to the Renton Lodge before finally joining the Auburn lodge.

Grazie Mary for being a special part of our lodge and our lives!
