The Slovenian Association
The Ottawa Slovenian Association was founded in 1975 and the
Slovenian school was established a year later. The society's
aims are to further social ties and mutual support among Slovenians
in the Ottawa area, to organize Slovenian folklore presentations,
to operate a Slovenian school, and to share the Slovenian heritage
with non Slovenian friends.
Among the activities organized by the club are three annual
dances, a New Year's celebration, two summer picnics, Slovenian
Day festivities, and monthly social afternoons. The society
prints a bulletin, Med nami (Between Us), and a telephone list
of local Slovenian families. At the present time the membership
includes approximately fifty families and eighteen individuals.
