Re: Independence Day of the Republic of Croatia – June 25th

Dear Mrs. Yelich,

The Canadian-Croatian Congress is an ‘umbrella’ organization set up to be an effective voice for the Croatian community in Canada. Our Branch Canadian-Croatian Congress British Columbia Branch is organizing annual banquet to celebrate the Independence Day of the Republic of Croatia.

We fully appreciate that your schedule is very busy, but we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join us at our banquet and to say a few words – and meet our community in Vancouver.

Our banquet is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, May 27th, 2006, at 7:30 pm. It is to be held in the Hall of Croatian Cultural Center at 3250 Commercial Drive in Vancouver and will include an entertaining program of Croatian folk dance and music.

We thank you and hope you can attend our event.

Sincerely yours,

Ivan Curman, President

Canadian-Croatian Congress
