Welcome to the Pikes Peak Chapter of The Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America...
The Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America (OSDIA) is the largest and longest established organization for men and women of Italian heritage in the United States. Established in 1905 as a mutual aid society for the early Italian immigrants, OSIA has more than 60,000 members and more than 700 chapters coast-to-coast. OSDIA‘s national headquarters are in Washington, D.C. near Capitol Hill.
The Pikes Peak Chapter #2870 was established in May of 2011 as a Fraternal Organization with 51 charter members. Founders of Pikes Peak Chapter #2870 are Tony Rodasta, Fred Darpino and Carlo Montera.
In order to join OSIA, one may be of Italian descent or married to or adopted by someone of Italian descent. Not Italian but have a love for all things Italian? No problem! You may join as a social member. All are welcome!
Opportunities abound in the OSIA; however, the pre-eminent one is meeting, getting to know and socializing with other Italian Americans in our community.
General membership meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month, at 6:30 pm in the VFW Post #101 at 702 South Tejon Street, Colorado Springs. For more information please call Gina Knaack at 719-290-9586.
