Societa San Vincenzo Martire di Craco

 

 

 

In August of 2008, during our Second Annual Reunion, we were sought out by an individual after he learned the Society was attending the San Rocco Mass, to share a photo of the Annual Banquet and Dance of the San Vincenzo Martire di Craco Society from 1938!   We  give our sincerest thanks to Paul Tocci for his thoughtful contribution to the Society.  An enlarged version of the above photograph is available by clicking on the photograph above.
