Success in Unity Ornament
Collectible Christmas tree ornament honoring the ancestry of those who created this city called Weirton 70 years ago this year.
The introduction of the Success in Unity Ornament – the first in a series that will be released each year honoring the many cultures that made up, and continue to make up, the fabric of the Weirton community – is a new tradition created by the Renaissance Weirton Corporation.
“Weirton was incorporated 70 years ago, a town made up of families from all over the world who made a hometown here we are all very proud of,” Mayor Miller said. “The ornament, with its ring of flags, embodies the spirit that built Weirton, which is ‘Success in Unity.’”
Felici Insurance generously sponsored the design and printing of this year’s ornament. “We wanted to be a part of Renaissance Weirton’s effort do something to re-energize the city’s motto and celebrate our 70th Anniversary,” said Matt Provenzano owner of Felici Insurance. “One of the many characteristics that makes our town unique is the many cultures blended together to build Weirton and its future.”
Each year the proceeds from these special-edition ornaments will go to a local organization working to improve the quality of life in Weirton. Recipients will be chosen each year by the members of the Renaissance Weirton Corp Board.
The first Success in Unity Ornament costs $10.00 and can be pre-ordered by calling 304-797-8500, Ext. 1002/1003, or by submitting an order form, and sending it with payment to Renaissance Weirton Corporation at 200 Municipal Plaza, Weirton, WV 26062.
