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. It’s amazing how fast the summer goes by! I’m praying that everyone and their families are safe from the unprecedented rainstorm and massive historical flooding that occurred this week in the tri-state area due to Hurricane Ida. I myself was driving in Brooklyn trying to get back home to Queens to no avail late Wednesday evening. It was a challenge but I successfully got to mother’s house in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn safe and sound for the night. God is good! Our next Lodge meeting is on Wednesday, September 22nd at 7:30 in Mahoney Hall at Holy Family parish. We will be having the President of the Commission for Social Justice Mr. Robert Ferrito as our guest speaker. We will be serving refreshments like gelato, sorbet, Brooklyn Italian cookies, coffee and bottled water. It should be an informative meeting. Lastly I’d like to personally wish all our members and their families a happy and safe Labor Day weekend! And may the 13 young U.S. soldiers we lost in Afghanistan last week all Rest In Peace and God comfort their grieving families. I hope to see everyone on September 22nd. God bless you, your families, our ountry, our troops and our Italian heritage! 

Peter Joseph Petrino, Jr. ~ Presiden
