 Creator:  Freedom Civic Association 
 Dates:  1917-1992 
 Abstract:  The Freedom Civic Association, also known as Societa Gildonese of Cleveland, Ohio, was founded on May 15, 1917. Guiseppe Perrotti and others established the Society as a fraternal, social, and patriotic association for the benefit of fellow immigrants from the town of Gildone, Italy. The organization offered the Gildone immigrants health and death benefits, taught them English, and helped with employment. Originally meeting at Alta House in Cleveland's "Little Italy", the organization later moved to the Collinwood area. In recent years, the Society met at the Allegro Club until it disbanded in 1992. The collection consists of bound ledger books which record membership lists, minutes, financial information, and secretary's books. The remainder consists of loose materials including bylaws, constitutions, correspondence, membership lists, and financial information.
