On this week’s episode of the Northeast Newscast, we’re joined by Anthony Mendolia, a former Northeast resident and business owner. Mendolia shares stories of his family business, Mendolia’s Italian Sausage, and reminisces on growing up in Northeast. He compares Northeast and Independence Avenue then and now, and shares his hopes for the future of his beloved childhood community. Mendolia will be joining the Northeast News team as a volunteer, sponsored by Central Bank of Kansas City, focusing on oral and written history, creating connections and advocating for Northeast.
