The Italian American Society of Kenosha celebrated its 100th anniversary Sunday. The organization held a celebration luncheon and fundraiser at the Italian American Club, 2217 52nd St., for members and non-members. Attendees dined on pasta and examined old photographs and documents detailing the society's history.

"It's pretty unbelievable that we've made it 100 years," said society president Ben Gentile on Sunday.
