BOOK DESCRIPTION 

Maryann Galiano Room Dedication

On October 24, 2020 at 2:00 pm, 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. The room which contains an extensive display of our Shenango China is now known as the Maryann Galiano Room. Among her many contributions, this is a room she dedicated an enormous amount of time to organizing the myriad of information found there. People in attendance were wearing masks and social distancing due to COVID-19 restrictions. Others attended via Zoom.
