AzCSE had great accomplishments in 2018. AzCSE achieved another milestone in showcasing, representing, and educating Azerbaijani culture, welcomed everyone regardless of cultural, religious, and ethnic backgrounds, brought families, friends, community together on many occasions. AzCSE held a very successful Novruz Bayrami Celebration Event in March, participated at the Heritage Festival for the fourth time in a row showcasing Azerbaijani culture to more than 300,000 Edmontonians and visitors, and run a number of cultural programs, including music practices, dance, knitting, cultural cooking classes, volleyball sessions, held potlucks, summer picnics, organized Family Day gathering, Mother's Day, 100th anniversary of Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (1918-20), Fathers Day, Holiday Gathering, Volunteer Appreciation events and a number of social nights. AzCSE participated in various city wide events, festivals, and celebrations throughout 2018 to showcase and promote Azerbaijani culture to Canadians from all backgrounds.
AzCSE annual meetings offer great opportunity to sit down and discuss what we have accomplished as a community and what could be improved and time to set plans for the year ahead. This year, AzCSE annual meeting will be held on January 20, 2019. We encourage all AzCSE members to attend the meeting. The next board will be also elected in the annual meeting. This is certainly a great opportunity for you to become an AzCSE board member, volunteer your time in helping your community to grow and flourish.
