Another year has come to an end, and my 2nd term as President will end in March 2018, in accordance with our Bylaws.
Over the past year, additional achievements have been accomplished, some in continuation from the previous year. I attribute this success to the voluntary efforts and teamwork of your Board, their spouses, partners, family members and countless volunteers.
The following will provide you a brief overview of matters that the Board, the respective Chairs and Committees under took over the past year, in commemoration of the 150 years anniversary of Canada.
The Canadian Romanian Society of Alberta was incorporated as a non-profit organization on April 4, 1978. The idea of forming a Romanian organization was first discussed at an Annual Meeting of the Sts. Constantine and Elena Church. Grants from the Provincial Government were being discussed at the meeting, although churches or religious organizations did not qualify for grants.
