Sons of Italy Man of the Year:  Brother Joe DeAngelo
Joe was named the Carmel S. Morina Lodge #2580, 2002 Man of the Year and  honored during the lodge's  July 4th parade.  According to the selection committee, Joe's dedication and hard work are inspirations for many club members. Joe has served as past president, but recently was both Rental Chairman and Bar Chairman - offices that are really meant for two people.  Joe is also a member of the New Jersey Order Sons of Italy Foundation Golden Lion Award Club.   The Committee also praised Joe for his willingness to tackle any job,  no matter how many hours are required, and his friendly and helpful attitude.  Congratulations, Brother Joe!

Who does this resemble? I was researching DeAngelos on the web and ran across this amazing image of Donato DeAngelis on the DeAngelo/Bellone homepage that looks amazingly like my brother Bob. 

Cousin Leroy Comes to Town
The day after Memorial Day, 2001, the DeAngelo Family was visited by a friend from the past.  Leroy Natale, son of Uncle Tom and Edwina Natale (you know, the New Yaak Italians) returned to Paulsboro, one of his favorite family vacation spots of  years gone by.  Leroy was accompanied by his Uncle Marvin and son Byron.  Although the stay was short, we managed to convene a cousins mini-reunion at the Sons of Italy Club.  Leroy, now retired, has been working on a Natale family tree for nearly a year. My mother Mary is a Natale.  Tom was here brother.  Leroy made good use of his time to update the genealogy and scan some precious old photos.

Fire! Fire!
On Friday, January 12, 2001, around 6:00 PM ... and only minutes after the chimney sweeps did what chimney sweeps do, the DeAngelos had a very frightening and damaging experience .... fire.  Pictured below is a shot of the offending fireplace the morning after.  Disaster Update: As of Saturday, February 17, our 150-year-old house is back in order.  It has been cleaned, painted, and generally renewed.  As a matter of fact, things now look pretty much as they did in the Christmas photo at left. As they say, all's well that ends well.

Before fire Some fire damage
