Due to the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing restrictions, the city has canceled the 2020 Hispanic Heritage and Italian Heritage celebrations.
The city has also postponed the 2020 St. Patrick’s Day Celebration honoring Irishman of the Year Keith M. Sweeney to March 17, 2021.
Mayor Nancy R. Rossi said the cultural honors are bestowed annually on Irish, Hispanic and Italian residents or couples who personify service in West Haven’s spirited Irish American, Hispanic American and Italian American communities.
“We look forward to celebrating these vibrant cultures next year and their immeasurable contributions to our way of life,” Rossi said.
