Abstract: "At this, the culmination of weeks of effort, we, the Committee in charge of the 25th Anniversary celebration of the Italian Institute of Stamford, Inc., wish to express our sincerely grateful appreciation for the splendid response of our Stamford business men, clubs, associations and friends, to our appeal for cooperation in this epochal event. We feel a just pride in having attained such a gratifying result in the face of unfavorable economic conditions. We attribute this, entirely, to the friendliness and innate generosity of our community at large and its satisfaction in the achievements of our institution. To our revered and courageous pioneers, whose labors and foresight made our institution possible, we pledge ourselves to carry on their work, and to further their ideals of mutual cooperation and understanding. Furthermore, we dedicate ourselves to the following tasks; to assist Italian-Americans in becoming better citizens; to bring about a better understanding of our racial problems; to further the dissemination of Italian culture; and to guide our youth to higher ideals. Finally, we wish to express our sincere appreciation to our able historians, Messrs. Vito Pittaro and Albert Sessea, for their untiring efforts in compiling this record of our institution."
