Our History

The Valley Of The Heart's Delight

San Jose, California has always been the original home to many Italian immigrants since the early 1900's. Italian immigrants came to the valley and worked primarily in the orchards and canneries. When you talk to many of our older generation, they tell wonderful stories of the past. With so much history in San Jose, one of our shared goals with other local Italian organizations, is to create a center where we can display our common history in San Jose.

The Sons of Sicily of San Jose, California, has always had social and community goals since the club's inception in 1974. The current Membership of the Sons of Sicily and its Women's Auxiliary Club continue to reach new levels of community and charitable involvement.
