The Sons of Italy Heritage Club of Shreveport-Bossier was founded in 1982, making this year our 40th Anniversary.  So, although October was nationally designated as Italian-American Heritage and Culture Month, we’re extending the celebration of our heritage for another month.

Friday, November 18, 2022, has been officially designated as Italian-American Heritage Day in the cities of Shreveport and Bossier City.  Proclamations from both Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins and Bossier City Mayor Thomas Chandler will be presented at the regular club meeting on November 8.

In a wonderful article in La Nostra Voce, Basil Russo, president of the Italian Sons and Daughters of America (ISDA),  described what it means to be an Italian-American. Please click this link and read this inspiring article. You’ll be glad you did.
