Members of the West Haven Italian-American Civic Association will escort Lacobelle to the steps of City Hall, accompanied by Italian music, at 11:30 a.m. Friday to be honored during the city's 17th Annual Columbus Day Celebration. The special recognition is bestowed annually on the city's Italian-American person of the year.
