History of the club
In 1975 3 Club amalgamated to form Casa D’Abrzzo Club, There were Francesco Paolo Michetti, Abruzzo e Moisle and Sulmona Marana Social Club.
In 1977 A fourth Club , the Peninsula Social Club amalgamated with Casa D’Abruzzo.
1978 The then Committee had the vision to purchase 8 hectare of rural land in O’Herns Road, Epping.
1980 Building Permits were obtained. On the 8th April excavation works commenced. The project was financed entirely by the generosity of members of the club who donated money, materials, machinery and many hours of voluntary work.
Every weekend, members would gather at O’Herns Road and whilst the men undertook the heavy excavation and building works, the women would provide food and beverages.
1982 Aquila Hall, Members room and 8 Bocce Courts (uncovered) were completed and ready for the official opening on the 6th march.
The hard work and enthusiasm of all members paid off and the Club was officially opened by the Ambassador of Italy Dr. Sergio Angeletti, and the Hon Lindsay Thompson CMG MP, the then Premier of Victoria.
Club members were also honoured by the attendance and participation of the first official delegation to Australia from the Region of Abruzzo.
