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.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Members and their Families!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I hope all are well. I’d like to begin by thanking all our members and guests who attended our “Movie Night” yesterday evening. It was a beautiful night. I only wish we had more members who were able to attend. Let’s hope they do in the future.
On Thursday, December 2nd, our Lodge will be hosting our Christmas dinner in Mahoney Hall at Holy Family parish. Festivities begin at 7pm. The cost will be $10 per person and ALL ARE WELCOME! You may bring guests if you wish. The cost will include snacks, a buffet dinner of hot Italian food, and desserts like Italian cakes, cookies, gelato and sorbet. Beverages will include water, soft drinks, wine, coffee and hot chocolate. We will be playing Christmas CD music on our radio while we eat. We will also have 50/50 and gift basket raffles tickets to purchase. And we will be giving out beautiful 2022 wall calendars of your choice for all guests. Please contact the lodge at if you plan on attending. We need a total headcount by Monday 11/29 so please RSVP no later than Sunday 11/28. It’s imperative that you let us know how many people are attending. You can pay at the door the night of the dinner. And you’re more than welcome to wear “an ugly Christmas sweater” if you wish! Please let’s all try to attend our beautiful Christmas dinner to support our great Lodge!
At this time, our Lodge would like to wish all of our members and families a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving! Please be safe if you’re traveling. And may God bless all of you, your families, our troops, our first responders, our country and our Italian heritage!
