LOCK HAVEN — More than 105 years ago, the Loggia Giosue Carducci Lodge #146 Order of the Sons and Daughters of Italy was founded as a meeting place for Italian Americans to enjoy the fellowship of our brothers and sisters of Italian descent.

Over a century later, the Sons continues to do so encouraging anyone to become a member. “We treasure the diverse community that now makes up our club,” the Sons website — www.sonsanddaughtersofitalylh.com — said.

Although much has changed since 30 men and women organized the local chapter, what hasn’t is the commitment to building connections and caring for their community.

The Sons and Daughters of Italy are extremely active in the community, donating to a multitude of local nonprofits and organizations.

Over the years, the Sons has donated to many charitable and civic endeavors such as The Annie Halenbake Ross Library, Infant Development Program, River Valley Regional YMCA in Lock Haven, Clinton County Special Olympics, the American Cancer Society, local school groups and much more.

Their popular spaghetti dinners benefit these local causes and build goodwill in the community.

Each year, the Sons also donates thousands of dollars to local organizations through proceeds from their gambling license.

The Sons, located at 1 N. Henderson St., has a wide variety of venues to choose from for your special event. Each can accommodate hundreds of guests for your birthday party, wedding, bridal shower and more.

Among them is:

— A second floor event space with bar and dance floor.

— A beautiful campground along the West Branch Susquehanna River. The campground includes three pavilions with full kitchen, a Bocce court and more.

— The outdoor patio is another great space. Recently, the Sons enclosed the patio and heated it so you can hold an event at the space year round.

“The Sons take great pride in our club and keep our facilities updated and ready for weddings, meetings, reunions, and more,” the Sons website said. “From our new, outdoor Italian courtyard to our recently remodeled second floor banquet room and our scenic picnic grounds along the Susquehanna River, we would be happy to share them with you.”
