The Friends of St. Liberata will honor Village of Patchogue Housing Inspector Joseph Brandi as the Italian-American of the Year at their annual Italian feast on Sept. 18. Brandi, 73, has been an active member of the Patchogue-Medford Community for decades, in particular with Patchogue-Medford Schools athletic programs, Patchogue Knights of Columbus, and the Friends of St. Liberata, chamber director David Kennedy said in an email.
