NOMINATIONS BEING SOUGHT FOR ANTONIO VARACALLI DAY AWARD 

The Seneca Falls community is being asked to nominate a person to receive the Antonio Varacalli Award which will be given to a resident which is perceived by their friends and neighbors to be a good citizen and hero to the community in which they live. 

Do you know a hero?  That is what the Antonio Varacalli Day Committee is asking residents of Seneca Falls and surrounding villages during the month of March. Antonio Varacalli, the Italian immigrant who saved a woman from drowning in the Seneca Falls Barge Canal in 1917, is the namesake to the “Antonio Varacalli Day – Celebration of Heroes” event. 

Individuals are being asked to nominate a person they see as a hero to be awarded the Annual Antonio Varacalli Day Award, which will be presented on April 23, 2022. 

The day’s event will begin at 11:00 a.m. with the reading of the Antonio Varacalli Day Proclamation, a brief history presentation, the ringing of “The Bells of Bedford Falls,” presentation of the Essay Contest winners, presentation of the Antonio Varacalli Day Award, music and a flower ceremony.  

 

Individuals wishing to nominate a hero can pick up a nomination form in Seneca Falls from

Historical Society – 55 Cayuga St.,
