Southington UNICO announced local builder Ron Ingriselli as the organization’s president during a recent swearing-in ceremony. Ingriselli succeeds Rev. Victoria Triano at the top spot, and Triano swore in her successor at the ceremony. “Vicki did a great job,” Ingriselli said. “She was our first female president, so it’s an honor to follow in her footsteps.” Ingriselli has been a member of the club for three decades, and he has played a key role as it grew into the self-supporting organization that it is today.

Comprised of nearly 100 members, Southington UNICO is a service-oriented organization that embraces three objectives: service to fellow man and community, fostering and promoting Italian heritage, and supporting charitable educational projects. With initiatives such as the Italian-American Festival, honoring the top 25 SHS students in each graduating class, and the planned renovations at Goat Island, the club has met its goals and exceeded expectations since its establishment in 1944. Annually, the club distributes about $30,000 to local and national charities and initiatives.
