The Good Neighbor Recognition Award was recently presented to Rich Firicano at Firicano’s Barber Shop on North Street. The award was presented by NEWRA Recognition Committee Chair Janet Gilardi on behalf of the North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA).
“Rich’s father, Richard Firicano, sweeps and picks up on the sidewalks and gutters in front of the shop as well as in front of his own residence (directly across from the shop). The Firicano’s have been very diligent and dedicated neighbors for over 100 years,” said Gilardi.
The monthly award is voted by NEWRA’s Executive Committee and given to local businesses, organizations and property owners that contribute to making our neighborhood beautiful and consistently keep the areas around their property clean of trash.
