A Christmas Message from the President...

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am delighted to extend my warmest greetings and sincere best wishes to the members and their families of the Canadian Romanian Society of Edmonton-Boian now at the end of 2011 and into the New Year.

It was a great year for the society! Together through the hard work and dedication of our society members we accomplished a variety of successes. In January 2011, we erected the beautifully designed statue of M. Eminescu, followed by the Boian Picnic in July, and participation in the Heritage Days Festival in August where we featured cultural food, music, and dance. Our Board of Directors also made some changes in our Constitution, which will be furthered finalized and discussed at our General Meeting in March 2012.

The Society has also sponsored a concert to take place at the end of 2011, featuring ‘Colinde with Stefan Hrusca,’ a well-known Romanian singer. We also plan to continue featuring similar concerts and shows in 2012. Continuing into the New Year, the Society will aim to organize events at the Church in Edmonton.

I would like to extend our thoughts to our Romanian partners in Calgary and across Canada. We wish them a New Year filled with happiness, prosperity, accomplishments and health!

I would also like to thank the Board of Directors of the Society- Lillian Bezovie, Georgina Eccleston, Nick Bututoiu, Richard Toma, Robert Pandi, and Silviu Ionescu for their continued support and dedication to the Society.

To all our members, non-members, and all those with Romanian hearts we extend our wishes for a Happy Holiday season and a wonderful New Year filled with health and happiness!

Crăciun fericit si La Multi Ani!

Warmest Wishes,
Dr. John Ion Slanina
