We may not be able to provide you with free trips to Rome, or visits to the Fontana di Trevi, but you can experience the world of Italy by becoming involved with others who share the same heritage as yourself.
UNICO is growing every month and keeping it dynamic and enthusastic should be everyone's mission.  Become a part of an organization that not only enriches the lives of it's members, but also provides countless services and programs to local and national organizations.

President's Message

Benvenuto! Welcome to UNICO Merrimack Valley and our website!

UNICO, with over 100 chapters throughout the United States, is the largest Italian-American service organization in the country and has been around for almost 100 years. Our Merrimack Valley Chapter will celebrate its 30th anniversary this fiscal year, and we honor those past and present members who have contributed to make our club what it is today.

UNICO is an acronym for five virtues that help define us: Unity, Neighborliness, Integrity, Charity, and Opportunity. Also, in Italian, Unico means “unique”, and our club is just that. For local Italian-Americans, there is no other organization where you can: meet and form lasting friendships with other distinguished Italian-Americans; share wonderful multi-course dinners each month in the area’s finest restaurants; celebrate our shared Italian ancestry with informative and stimulating Italian heritage presentations; work together for the benefit of charities and those in need throughout the Merrimack Valley; and meet and grant significant college scholarships to amazing and deserving area students of Italian descent. Si, siamo UNICO!

Holding true to our mission of Service Above Self, since our founding, we are proud to have granted more than $825,000 to local charities doing good work in our area and to laudable area students to help afford college. The principal fundraiser that allows us to make the difference we do is our annual UNICO Merrimack Valley Golf Tournament.  This year it was held on September 23rd.   We had beautiful weather and the tournament was a huge success!

If you are an Italian-American who lives and/or works in the greater Merrimack Valley and have passion for your heritage and passion for making a difference for others, we would love to meet you. Please contact myself or one of our board members so that we can have you as our guest at an upcoming dinner meeting so you can learn more.

Good wishes and Belle cose,

Joseph P. DiBlasi, Esq.
