Southington UNICO named Alphonse D’Angelo as the 2016 Gold Medal Award recipient, the club’s most prestigious honor that has been awarded annually to a town resident since 1945. He will be honored during the Gold Medal Award Dinner on Wednesday, May 17, at 6 p.m. at the Aqua Turf Club.

Tickets are still available for the event. D’Angelo is a life-long member of the Southington community. In fact, the D’Angelo’s were the third Italian family to settle in Southington when Alphonse’s maternal grandmother came to town from Italy in 1875 and his father in 1911. His family grew up on Bristol Street.
