Club Castropignano, now known as Club C Event Centre was initially formed in 1972 by a group of immigrants from Castropignano Italy. Their vision continues on today...
Welcome to Club Castropignano Niagara
In the early 1970’s, a few immigrants from Castropignano Italy had a vision to create a social club to be named “Club Castropignano”. The chosen “name” was to honour their beloved birthplace, “Castropignano,” a tiny village located in the Molise region of Italy.
Founded in 1972
A group of volunteers issued an invitation to all interested persons to attend a meeting on October 15, 1972. At that time, forty people first registered for membership, followed by the election of the first president and Board of Directors for the newly formed “Club Castropignano Niagara".
