Valerie, a traditional stay-at-home Mom while her children were in their formative years, was never one to sit idle. She was a parent volunteer program coordinator at a local village school system for fifteen years. She coached Special Olympics, (athletics for those that possess some restrictions), for six years. A volunteer with the Salvation Army and an Cosmetic Representative for eight years, she also ran her own Nationally recognized Internet Company and was honored with Who's Who of Business Professionals. She also served as an Office Administrator at Ameriprise Financial. Valerie enjoys humanity, line dancing, scrap booking and her vintage vehicles. 



Afforded extensive educational pursuits over four years at 
Learning Tree International and Bellcore / Telcordia, Anthony and others from the Worlds of International Business and Government expanded their own horizons and contributed a small part toward changing technologies.


Though multiple opportunities were offered, we stayed committed to our home state, but at a cost. Changing technologies led Bell Atlantic / Verizon to focus emerging synergies outside of West Virginia by the early 2000's. I switched gears and entered the Outside Engineering Department where I retired from Verizon with 31 years of service, performed engineering work for another entity, but life being as it may; the best laid plans can sometimes go awry.


Site Visiting Countries
Vintage Car Hobby   2008 Hungary
Horsham, PA July 2005 - Grundy Worldwide is proud to announce that Anthony & Valerie Lacaria took home the First Place in their division at the All-Chrysler Nationals held in Carlisle PA July 8-10. All at Grundy wish to congratulate them and their stunning 1972 AMC Javelin for achieving such a great accomplishment.

The Lacaria's are not exactly new to winning awards. Their 1956 Chrysler Imperial won the same award at the 2003 Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals and was invited back to the "Survivors Area" of the Nationals in 2004 & 2005. The "Survivors Area" is the best in the Nation of un-restored original automobiles.....

Assitance provided to Foreign Travelers by a host of citizens would lead to various American and European adventures with those that stressed the greatness of America, the opportunities the world possesses and the dangers of non-democratic societies. The realization that others, regardless of country, strive to attain the most for their children's future and their educational needs.
Eger Hungary was personally engaging, whereas we drove a 1959 Imperial with an American flag in their area's land rally. More then just another event, as our friends informed us that we be taken to places few Americans had ever been before. One man, who possessed sentiments toward the former pre-1990 governance, would get emotional when we boarded our departure train to Munich. Overall; a positive experience in areas where the admiration and respect for the United States exceeded what many might envision.

Christian History

I always held the memory of turning my back on a central figure in my life; a parochial school nun who implored me to face the societal changes that were rapidly occurring. Decades later, after I left the Catholic Church, I would encounter a most intriguing individual. A Vatican Historian, known as the Maserati priest and a lexicon of knowledge, who was also a philanthropist of continual motion that resembled the nun of decades earlier. He would pen historical volumes and take the majority of the proceeds to purchase supplies for the poor and then accompany said supplies to their designated locations. His presence, along with visiting many Catholic and Protestant churches, would challenge anyone's perspective on life, death and the meaning of it all. A great collector of postage stamps the world over, Father Manfred would find himself honored with his own image placed on an Austrian Postage Stamp.
