Club Castropignano

Our History

Our Story

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.

A group of volunteers issued an invitation to all interested persons to attend a meeting on October 15, 1972 at Club Capri in Thorold. 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.”
