They came with determination, courage, hope and dreams. They left family, friends and a sense of security in their homeland, beautiful Italia! They sought a more rewarding life for their families in America. They did not, however, let go of their deep-rooted heritage, nor their pride which they instilled in us.

Our Vision: To create a place where our members and their families can call “home”. We would aspire to enrich the quality of their lives by focusing on all aspects of Italian tradition including food, language, travel, culture, history, folklore, customs, celebrations, music, genealogy study and any other activities which support this vision. It will truly be a place to celebrate and educate.
