We of Lodge 2517 are pleased to announce that our national organization, previously named "Order Sons of Italy in America," has recently been renamed "Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America." For an examination of the issue regarding the new interpretation of the original "Ordine Figli d'Italia in America" see the recent edition of Italian American magazine, a free monthly publication for members.

Please see the Calendar page and the Newsletter page of this website for our list of scheduled activities to support our charitable and social goals, as well as our efforts to advance our own knowledge and appreciation of our Italian and Italian-American culture, as well as our efforts to promote them.
