The G. Marconi Society recently celebrated its 100th anniversary and numerous events were held during 2012 to celebrate this prestigious milestone. One of the legacies of our celebration is the creation of a special 100th Anniversary souvenir book which profiles the history of our club. The book also features stories & photos of numerous individuals and groups of Italian descent that contributed to the Italian heritage in Sault Ste. Marie. The books are available at the Marconi Club office during regular business hours. Cost for the book is $10.00
Also, members are advised that the 2013 Marconi Society calendars are at the Marconi Club office.
