THE CLUB IN REVIEW:
- The Rocky Colavito statue in Little Italy Cleveland was dedicated August 10th with an appearance by the Rock and hundreds in attendance including representatives from the IAPBC observing our plaque installed as part of the wall surrounding the statue. Many tears were shed and much love given to Rocky, his family and friends. Grazie mille to the many volunteers involved in this wonderful project!
