Sons of Italy Omaha rebuild fund
It was decided that it would be cost prohibitive to remove the fire damaged building and start over. So the damaged portion will be removed and we will keep the structurally sound part and rebuild.
We have selected a contractor to do the work They began work on April 3rd. They estimate work will be completed by the end of the year. We haven’t set an opening date, but will publish it here. The final product will be a beautiful new Sons of Italy Hall of which both the members and the community will be proud.
Insurance covered much of the building but the interior furnishings were a total loss, mostly due to smoke damage. The kitchen received most of the damage. We need tables and chairs for the dinning hall. Stoves, grill, stainless steel tables, freezer, cooler, sinks and all the accessories that make up a kitchen.
I have been a member of Sons of Italy since 1994 and am currently the State Recording Secretary.
You can help us by making a donation of $150. This will purchase a dining set, table and four chairs. We neet 75 sets to furnish the dining hall. Talk to your friends and relatives. Maybe you can go in halves with them and purchase a set.
Thank you for your support.
