March 8 designated as Evelyn Fiore Day

PROCLAMATION from Fred Camillo, First Selectman 

WHEREAS, Evelyn Fiore is 104 years young as of March 8th 2022, and has lived through the Spanish Flu, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, COVID (of which she was hospitalized for and survived), 18 different US presidents, the civil rights and women's rights movements and so much more; and

WHEREAS, In the 1940s, Evelyn worked for a Hollywood magazine Photoplay, as Assistant Editor and she met many famous actors, the likes of which were Ava Gardner, who gave her accidental lessons in the use of make-up and drinks with Frank Sinatra at the Stork Club; and

WHEREAS, Evelyn has written and produced approximately eight books and at least four magazine articles for publications such as Readers Digest, Saturday Evening Post and of course, Photoplay. She also wrote a book about the Women's movement, but unfortunately, it was never published. One of her books, "Muggable Mary", which was about a New York police woman, was made into a Hollywood movie and is still being shown today; and

WHEREAS, Evelyn strongly believes in regular exercise - not just now and then, but regular, every day exercise, which she does every morning; and

WHEREAS, When Evelyn's husband went into the service, they relocated to St. Petersburg, Va. This experience had an enlightening impact on Evelyn, who was brought up in the Jewish faith, in that this was the first time she experienced bias against Jews, and perhaps other people, which was freely expressed in public; and

WHEREAS, Evelyn is very intelligent, quick witted and highly entertaining. She loves her children and grandchildren.

NOW, THEREFORE, l, FRED CAMILLO, FIRST SELECTMAN OF THE TOWN OF GREENWICH, do
hereby proclaim March 8, 2022 as
Evelyn Fiore Day

in the Town of Greenwich and urge all citizens to join me in wishing Evelyn Fiore a very happy 104th birthday! Congratulations and best wishes!
