Wrapping up the year of our 75th anniversary, Branch 23 of Welland had an excellent turnout on Sunday, Dec 13 for our annual Christmas party.
It was my pleasure to present two of our young members with scholarship awards from the Canadian Slovak League Head Office, 1st District Assembly, as well as from our own branch. Jonathan Ireland and Christopher Sorley, have both worked very hard to achieve this recognition today and we congratulated them both for their hard work and their outstanding achievements. We also presented Anna Bosak and John Bosak with paintings, by Orillia artist Alojz Brestovansky, as a tribute for their long time membership of 50 years with Br 23.
Santa visited the children and was enjoyed by young and old. A delicious buffet was prepared by the cooks of St. Anthony's parish. Pictures were taken by Br. 23 member, Mike Dinga. Thank you everyone for coming out and making our day a special one.
Wishing you all a very peaceful and blessed Christmas, and health and happiness in the coming year.
Christine Dzugan, President
