Vinci - a commune in Florence Province, Tuscany.
Jarig Bakker, 6 Febuary 2002
Celebrating the April 15 birthday of the great Leonardo, New
Milford CT (USA), sister-city-in-the-making of the Comune di
Vinci, Italy, (website <http://www.comune.vinci.fi.it/>
) is flying the one-year-old Vinci flag. Here's a photo of a unique flag
combination -USA-NM-Vinci-- flying from the flag pole in front of
Town Hall in NM. Mayor Bob Gambino himself helped Tom Ruane raise
the flag on April 12; it will keep flying for one week.
Monday, April 15, during a ceremony starting in Town hall at 12 noon, Mayor Gambino will present the yearly Leonardo da Vinci award for excellence in the arts to world-famous New Milford painter Woldemar Neufeld and to Diane Dubreuil, President of the Housatonic Art League - both awardees also will be celebrated for their dedicated work on behalf of our community.
