Sons of Italy
Lodge # 2782

Are you Italian or an IBM (Italian By Marriage)? Do you admire things Italian (language,culture, food, arts, fashion, design, etc,)? The Manatee County branch of the ORDER SONS OF ITALY IN AMERICA is the Bradenton Lodge. Our Order celebrated their 100th anniversary in June 2005. We have over 700 lodges in the United States and Canada. Florida has over 40 lodges and a Grand Lodge.

The Italian Study Group emphasizes FUN and TRAVEL. Meetings are held at "Renaisance on 9th" 1816 9th Street West on Wednesdays at 10:15 AM.

We invite you to join our lodge and the ORDER SONS OF ITALY IN AMERICA. Your membership will support the many purposes of the Bradenton Lodge as well as the Florida Grand Lodge and OSIA.

The purposes of the Order are:

A. Enroll in its membership all persons of Italian birth or descent …who believe in the fundamental concept that society is based upon the principles of law and order, and who adhere to a form of government founded upon the belief in God, and based upon the Constitution of the United States of America.

B. To promote civic education as well as the oral, intellectual and material well being of our membership.

C. To encourage the dissemination of Italian culture in America, thereby keeping alive the spiritual attachment and tradition of the land of our ancestors.

D. To defend and uphold the prestige of the people of Italian birth or descent in America, as well as upholding the concept of Americanism.

E. To encourage the active participation of our membership in the political, social, and civic life of our communities.

F. To organize and establish benevolent and social welfare institutions for the protection and assistance of our members, their dependents, and in general the needy, with such material aid as we are able to give.

G. To initiate and organize movements for patriotic and humanitarian purposes, and to join in meritorious movements for such purposes which other organizations or groups have initiated.

Our Bradenton Lodge is developing activities to achieve our goals through fundraising and socializing. We hope you will join us! We sure could use your help!

We meet at the Palma Sola VFW, 550 - 51st St W, Bradenton FL, on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM. We also serve a home cooked Italian dinner before our meeting, starting at 5:30 PM. Please join us at dinner and our meeting to see if we can help you increase your appreciation of your interest in things Italian.
