"Little Italy" Monument Dedication

There may be hundreds of "Little Italys" across the nation and across the world, but for Millinocket folks who bear such familiar Italian names as Manzo or Colangelo or Brigalli or DiCentes or Pasquine, there is only one "Little Italy" - the one that began in 1899 on Prospect St. and York St. in Millinocket - the "Little Italy" that now lives on mostly in peoples' memories.

This week, fourth generation Millinocket descendants of the original Italian laborers, brick layers and masons, whose back breaking labor built Millinocket's Great Northern Paper mill, will gather to celebrate their heritage and to honor their fore bearers with a special dedication ceremony at 10 a.m., on Saturday July 5, at the Millinocket Cemetery.

"Compassionate Friends" Memorial Garden

Each year, tragically, approximately 53,000 children die before achieving their latent potentials, leaving behind devastated, grieving parents and siblings.

                A few years ago, recognizing those cold, hard statistics do little to help keep alive the memories of their lost ones, a  small group grieving parents, calling themselves the "Compassionate Friends," came up with the idea of how to keep their deceased children's memories alive. That idea was to plant a small garden honoring these loved ones, an idea that received swift approval from the then pastor of St. Martin's Church.

                The memorial garden is located on the lawn on the Colby St. side of St. Martin of Tours Church, near the Holy Innocents Chapel. And a small statue of St. Francis of Assisi keeps watch over the memorial flowers.
