OSIA Grand Lodge will host centennial gala


The Grand Lodge of Delaware is sponsor-ing a gala centennial celebration on May 20 at the Waterfall Banquet & Conference Center in Claymont.

The event marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Order of Sons and Daughters of Italy Grand Lodge on June 12, 1923. (The OSIA organization itself dates back to June 22, 1905.)
