Bringing Us Together

- Enable seniors to participate in family and community life
- Gain respect for our heritage by children and youth
- Practice good citizenship skills
- Sustain a focal point in the community where every Italian American and those who appreciate Italian culture can acquire and practice our cultural traditions
