Florini recognized for outdoor outreach
by Keith Stewart
Florini is a name that has been tied to Sullivan and the surrounding area for almost 75 years beginning in the early 1940s with the opening of Jibby’s restaurant. But the recognizable family name has extended beyond the once local spot in the form of Joe Florini and his decades of outreach when it comes to the outdoors.
“Obviously, a Florini, all of them are well thought of,” said childhood friend Steve Wood. “Never a bad word from anybody.”
