Christmas greetings from Montreal

Vianoce_v_Montreale200Canadian Slovak League, Branch 2, in Montreal, held on December 4th, 2011 a Christmas dinner for its members and their friends. This dinner is always very popular each year.

The invitation to this dinner was accepted by the Slovak ambassador in Canada Milan Kollár with his wife Sonia and the President of CSL Mary Ann Doucette, Honorary Consul for Slovak Republic Dezidert Michaletz with his wife, Rev. Gabriel Juruš who is serving Slovak masses at the church, and Fr. Peter Sabbath, Parochial administrator.

President of the Branch Lydia Matusky welcomed nearly 150 guests in the church hall of Sts. Cyril and Methodius, beautifully decorated with Christmas decorations, which was done by Betty Valenta, Mary Lorenc, and Zdenka Krc. Adel Lashanik and Marta Fuska were in charge of food to be well prepared and that is enough for everybody. A bar couldn’t be missed for this festive occasion and Vlado Cincik made sure that there is enough of Golden Pheasant and wine.

Opera singer Maria Adamcová, entertained us with her beautiful voice. The whole afternoon was carried out in a pleasant atmosphere.

See you next year!
