Vasco da Gama has been welcoming Portuguese Immigrants for decades. It has been a place where a community can gather and share a common language and culture.  Today, Vasco da Gama is not only a staple for Portuguese Immigrants but for their Children. A tradition we hope and wish to continue and support. To ensure that this tradition continues the members of Vasco da Gama Portuguese Club voted to transform this organization from a social club to an organization supporting the Portuguese Cultural. As of 2008 Vasco da Gama is now known as Vasco da Gama Portuguese Cultural Civic Center. Recognized by the United States Government as a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization. This status will help us obtain one of our largest goals of purchasing land and building a new center to support the various needs of our members. The center will include the Portuguese School facilities, a soccer field, sports complex, library/media center, restaurants and many other activities that support the Portuguese cultural and heritage.  However, this is not the only changes occurring. We have new membership plans,  more member benefits and were completing very small remodeling project in the current location. The remodel will provide dining areas and allow members to enjoy lunch, dinner, espresso, cappuccino or cocktail.
