As a Lodge -- we have an historic history in the Sons of Italy order as the 20th chapter in the United States. We also have the unique distinction of being the oldest existing lodge in the United States. Founded in 1908 we are proud to still be serving the Torrington Community.
On a local level -- we are the Concordia Lodge in Torrington CT.

Sharing fun leisure times, working together for the good of our community and understanding their sense of purpose -- our members are empowered with the knowledge that they can make a difference.
On a national level -- we are an organization of men and women who represent the estimated 26 million Americans of Italian heritage, dedicated to promoting our culture, our traditions, our language, the legacy of our ancestors, and our contributions to the U.S. and the world. We are sons and daughters, grandmothers and grandfathers. We are corporate executives and we are union members...young students and retirees...teachers and attorneys...doctors and firefighters...bakers and Wall Street brokers...and everything in between. We are philanthropists and we are model global citizens with purpose beyond ourselves. And we are proud and patriotic Americans of Italian heritage.
