Maryann Galiano Room Dedication

Former board member and long-time volunteer who passed away in June of 2020

On October 24, 2020 at 2:00 pm (eastern time), we dedicated a room on the second floor of the Joseph A. Clavelli Cultural Heritage Center in memory of our former board member and long-time volunteer, Maryann Galiano. People in attendance were wearing masks and social distancing due to COVID-19 restrictions. Others attended via Zoom.

Among her many contributions, she dedicated an enormous amount of time to organizing the myriad of information found there. The room contains an extensive display of our Shenango China and is now known as the Maryann Galiano Room.
