1930St. Peter’s Club was organized.People and Communities, Italian History, Local Organizations

While the Fishermen’s Institute was open to all fishermen, the internal organization tended to be less than welcoming to the Italian newcomers. The close-knit Sicilian fisherman community created their own social support system, including forming a committee to foster the St. Peter’s procession. The St. Peter’s Club was chartered in 1938.
