At their 57th annual dinner dance on March 24th, the Flowers of Italy Club selected River Grove Village President Dave Guerin as the recipient of the 2018 Man of the Year Award.

"I am honored to be even considered for the "Man of the Year" award by such a prestigious Italian American organization such as the Flowers of Italy Club," said Mayor Guerin. "Even though I do not have an Italian last name, I have always been proud of my mother's Italian heritage. No matter what our nationality, we all share signature Italian American values: God and family first, respect and loyalty to friends, and the drive to work hard for our families in order to secure better lives for future generations. I congratulate the Flowers of Italy Club for their generosity and gifts of education to young people through their scholarship program. Education is a gift that stays with you for life."

Founded in 1961, the Flowers of Italy Club hosts a dinner dance every March and awards scholarships to young people from the local community. Since its very beginning, the scope of the club has included recreational, sporting, educational and charitable endeavors.
