Family Picnic

For over 150 years, Italians have emigrated to America to create a better life for their families. Italian Americans have embraced America as their own while preserving many of our customs, food and song. The goal of Triangle Sons and Daughters of Italy (TSDOI) is to share that culture with everyone. It doesn’t matter if you are

Italian or just enjoy our customs, food and song – we welcome everyone. Throughout the year we

run a variety of events where we share our love of being Italian with anyone who wants to share it with us.  We also focus on giving back to the community that supported our ancestors that arrived here ahead of us.



The Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America (OSDIA) is the largest and longest-established national organization for men and women of Italian heritage in the United States.

Established in 1905 as a mutual aid society for early Italian immigrants, today OSDIA has more than 600,000 members and supporters and a network of more than 700

chapters coast to coast, making it the leading service and advocacy organization for the nation’s estimated 26 million

people of Italian descent. OSDIA encourages the study of Italian language and culture in American schools and universities; preserving Italian American traditions, culture, history and heritage; and promoting closer cultural relations between the United States and Italy.

“I was motivated to join the Triangle Sons & Daughters of Italy to rekindle certain aspects of the Italian American influenced lifestyle.  The organization offers something of interest to all members whether it be learning about and experiencing Italian culture, sharing an

Italian inspired sport like bocce ball, socializing at an American pastime baseball game, enjoying an Italian meal, performing charity work, or simply chatting about how we retain and share certain aspects of Italian

American culture to our ever evolving and wonderfully diverse families.   Come join us to meet terrific people and participate in fun events. – Don Cimorelli”
