Peter J. “PJ” Adonizio and his wife, Alicia Ghilardi Adonizio, recently presented a $1,000 donation to the John F. Kennedy Statue committee.
The committee plans to erect a statue of former president John F. Kennedy on Kennedy Boulevard. The project is a joint effort between members of several Pittston organizations. Knights of Columbus Council 372, its auxiliary, The Jacquelines and the Greater Pittston Friendly Sons of St. Patrick are working with the city’s redevelopment authority to bring the project to fruition.
The life-sized bronze statue will serve as a memorial to all deceased members of the three organizations.
PJ Adonizio is a Third Degree Knight in the Knights of Columbus Council 372 and an active member of the Greater Pittston Friendly Sons of St. Patrick. He is the owner and supervisor of the Adonizio Funeral Home, LLC, along with his sons and partners, Peter J. Adonizio Jr, and Joseph P. Adonizio.
