The Essex County Board of Chosen Freeholders celebrated Italian Heritage Month during earlier this month at the Hall of Records. The event was hosted by District 4 Freeholder Leonard Luciano of West Caldwell and District 5 Freeholder Brendan Gill of Montclair. During the celebration of Italian culture and heritage, the board also honored the following individuals: Philip B. Alagia of Fairfield, Paul Alongi, Sr., of Bloomfield, and Angelo Di Federico of Newark.
