Subject: Carver of Mt. Rushmore to Be Honored

Hello all:
The Sgt. John Basilone Lodge #2442 would like all OSIA lodges be made aware of an important upcoming national event. On Sept. 16, 2017Luigi Del Bianco, chief carver on Mt. Rushmore, will be honored with a plaque dedication by the National Park Service. 

Although sculptor Gutzon Borglum was the designer and sculptor of the Mt. Rushmore figures, it was Italian-born Luigi Del Bianco whom Borglum hired as his chief carver for "refinement of expression" and his work is one sees when viewing the monuments.

You can read all about Luigi Del Bianco's part in finishing Mt. Rushmore by going to the website created by his family.  www.luigimountrushmore.com
Please pass this on to your lodge members and friends.
