As a celebration of the contributions the Italian people have made to this area, the dedication of a Sons of Italy monument will take place on Thursday. Club member Jim Rinaldo said the event will take place at 11 a.m. at the site, next to the Muskie Memorial near the Rumford Information Center on Bridge Street. “The Italian community should be proud.
