Saint Ambrogio Society is a social club located in Rockford, Illinois, USA.  It began as an Italian-American club only for those who migrated to America from the Ferentino region of Italy, but today it has grown to open it's doors to all peoples and cultures.  It's purpose is to bring together those interested in socializing, fellowship, music, laughter, and games while supporting various civic and charitable works to enrich the lives of it's members and the community.

Because the roots of the Club's past go deep to it's ITALIAN HERITAGE, it will continue to feature activities that educate and share popular Italian traditions with friends and family.  Events include Italian food, music, and Bocce (Italian lawn bowling), along with Tombola and raffles.  Many parties are held throughout the year to celebrate various events and holidays including the annual multi-day traditional Feast of Saint Ambrogio in mid August.
