President's Message

First and foremost, I am very proud and honored to assume the role as President of the Sons and Daughters of Italy, Garibaldi Lodge for the next two years. In my eleven years as a member, including 8 years sitting on the Board of Executives, I have been very fortunate to be around so many great Brothers and Sisters of our organization, who share the same passion and goals in continuing our 35 year rich history in our Winnipeg community with ongoing philanthropy and great initiatives throughout the year. 

Although this past year may have brought many challenges both personally and globally, I look forward to a new year and its possibilities. As the new President, I am humbled to follow the footsteps of our many great past presidents, including past president Dino Petrelli. I am excited to be working alongside the new Board of Directors, including the members of the Executive and its Trustees as well as with all of our Son and Daughter members. Together, we will work towards our continued commitment to our community through service and celebration of our great Italian heritage with “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity”.
