Principessa Elena Society
“Organized by a group of Italian-American men to assist Italian families who immigrated to Saratoga Springs, the club was named after Elena, who was a beautiful Italian princess in the old country. The Principessa Elena Society was founded January 4, 1900 and the founding organizing principle was to benefit their members based on fraternity, liberty, and equality and to promote the moral and collective welfare of its members.” – “Dublin Revisted” by Lee Signor
Today, the Society along with the Women’s Auxiliary supports community activities with donations of money each year for 4 scholarships awarded to Saratoga High and Saratoga Central Catholic scholars. They also contribute to west side youth activities and prepare Friday night dinners open to the public a couple times per month.
