I want to thank you for inviting us to participate in the annual Serbian Festival. We thoroughly enjoyed our day visiting with you, Premier Kenney and certainly his Excellency Mihailo Papazoglu.

The hospitality shown by yourself and the organizers was once again incredible making for an exceptional experience.

Jason Kenney

Premier of Alberta

Had a fantastic time at the #Calgary @SerbianFest. Beautiful folklore, great food, and of course slivovica! Thanks for the very warm welcome.

Mihailo Papazoglu

Serbian Ambassador to Canada

Odlična organizacija ekipe srpske zajednice i srdačnost, pokazuje mnogobrojna posećenost kanadskih zvaničnika i gostiju. Sa ponosom mogu reći da su na pravi način mogli da se upoznaju sa srpskim dostignućima, srpskim naučnicima i gastronomijom.
Upućujem Vam još jednom svoju podršku da i u budućnosti ovakva značajna manifestacija bude razlog da se srpska zajednica i mladi naraštaji okupljaju, gaje svoju tradiciju, kulturu i jezik, i da se veze izmedju Srbija i Kanade još više učvršćuju.
Srdačni pozdrav srpskoj dijaspori i Srpskom festivalu u Kalgariju. Celo pismo mozete procitati ovde.
