Who are we?
You probably know us as the organization that has run the annual Italian-American Festival at Pellegrini Park in Newton for almost 85 years but, the St Mary of Carmen Society is much more than that. We are a non-profit organization committed to helping families and organizations in the community.
In just the past ten years, the society has been able to donate approximately $150,000 to organizations, families and individuals in need in Nonantum and surrounding communities.
The society and its members have supported the Memorial Day Parade, Parks and Recreation., John M Barry Boys and Girls Club, various local sports teams, Nonantum Children's Christmas Party Assn., the Nonantum Neighborhood Assn./Village Day, Italian exchange program, Toys for Tots, and many others in the community.
