The Luigi Pirandello Lodge #2875 is one of the newest lodges in the NYS Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America.  Our Lodge was created in October 2012 and we are steadily growing.  We work to portray a positive image of Italian Americans and to support various worthwhile causes such as Cooley’s anemia, Alzheimer’s research, Cancer Research, Vetarens and disaster relief efforts sponsored by our State and National Organization.   Our Lodge meets on the fourth Wednesday of the month at Holy Family’s Monsignor Mahoney Hall, 175-20 74th Ave, Fresh Meadows, NY 11366.  Visit our website for regular updates.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I hope all are well. Welcome to October, Italian Heritage Month! We will be hosting our Lodge Meeting on Wednesday, October 27th at 7:30 pm in Mahoney Hall at Holy Family parish. We will have the Italian/American author Mike DeLucia as our guest speaker. He will be discussing his new book and his other books he wrote. His books will be for sale the night of the meeting for those interested in purchasing his book or books. His books are not on Amazon or available by any on-line purchases. All books will be sold in person by cash or check. We will be serving coffee, bottled water, Italian cookies and mini pastries all from Brooklyn to honor Italian heritage month. And we are still abiding by NY State COVID guidelines to keep everyone safe and healthy. I hope to see everyone on the 27th. God bless you, your family, our first responders, our troops, our country and our Italian heritage!
Happy Columbus Day on Monday!
