DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD
A small black velvet sack arrived in the mail the other day. In it was a beautiful enameled pin embossed with the logo of the Italian Trade Commission and the words “Distinguished Service Award”. I am very grateful to receive this award and the recognition it represents for my years of work in the field of Italian food and culture. Thank you to everyone at the Italian Trade Commission for granting me this honor. I feel very fortunate to be able to do the work I love to do and to receive this acknowledgement for my efforts.
