Both lodges, located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., are part of a fraternal order of Canadians of Italian affiliation working to achieve service and charity to those in need through involvement in the political, social, and economic life of the community. The Sons of Italy also strives to promote Italian heritage through work in preserving the Italian language, culture, and traditions in Canada. The G. Verdi and Princess Marie Jose Lodges have also established scholarships at Sault College and Algoma Conservatory in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. (LSSU/John Shibley)
