The Association celebrates 25 years!

On Saturday, February 16, 2103, over 360 members and friends gathered at Buffet Amiens in St-Leonard for the Association’s 25th Anniversary Banquet. Partygoers enjoyed a succulent meal, music, a performance of the traditional tarantella, and the launch of the Association’s book, La Nostra Storia – I Castelgrandesi di Montreal. Founding members Antonio Cristiano and Giuseppe Masi were each awarded a gift watch for their 25 years of service to the Association. Both the Executive Board and the Women’s Committee were also recognized for their dedication.
