Announcing the 2012 Troy Treasure Awardee: Michael A. Esposito

TRIP is proud to announce that this year’s “Troy Treasure” awardee is Michael Esposito!  As a lifelong resident of Troy, he has been chosen for his tireless, lifelong efforts toward improving Troy’s Little Italy as well as the entire city.  He has also helped to preserve Troy’s history by serving for years as the city’s unofficial historian. Mike will be recognized at TRIP & RCHR’s annual Homecoming Dinner on October 29th.
Early on Mike recognized the potential in our city and has dedicated his life to supporting Troy through his activism, organizing, and recording our history through stories. One of his most ambitious projects was the book “Troy’s Little Italy.”  Mike is also an integral force in organizing community events including an annual stickball tournament, celebrations of famous Troy residents, and Troy’s annual International Festival.
As Frank Visco says, and many would agree… “Mike has the goods.” 
Congratulations, Mike, on being this year’s “Troy Treasure!”
