The Sons of Italy Lodge of Southern Colorado is a recognized leader in the Pueblo community because of its many successful projects such as the Scholarship Awards Dinner which has generated almost $150,000 worth of Scholarships to worthy students, the Italian language programs in all the high schools, the continual ceremony at the Columbus Monument for over 106 years, a dinner with entertainment,  and most importantly having the Columbus Monument placed on the NATIONAL REGISTRY OF HISTORIC PLACES.

HOWEVER, these events don’t just happen without a lot of time and energy spent by lodge brothers, and most of the work has been by the same members every year. You all have a special talent that can be given on behalf of the organization. For every skill you possess, there is a need here at the Sons of Italy Lodge. Somewhere on this list of committees is something that makes you say,

“Yes, I can do that, I can WALK THE WALK!”
