Event updates for 2021

We have a few events in the works for 2021, dependent, of course, on COVID-19 restrictions and protocols. 

Drive-thru BBQs at Our Lady of Lourdes church:

  • We’d like to host a BBQ at the end of March or early in April, weather dependent, as we did last summer. More info coming soon.
  • We will host a BBQ for Mother’s Day (Sunday May 9) with free meals for moms.
  • Will we also host a BBQ for Father’s Day (Sunday June 20) with free meals for dads. If public health orders allow, we will also have a short program celebrating our Slovenian heritage on this day, as Slovenia Day is also around this time, on June 25.

CSCS 70th Anniversary:

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the CSCS, and while it is very unlikely we will be able to gather in any large way, we will be planning something as a way of celebrating this milestone. We will keep you all updated as plans progress.

AGM on November 29

Hello Members,

We will be hosting our Annual General Meeting on Sunday, Nov. 29, at 2 p.m.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and our desire to keep all of our members safe, we will be doing the AGM via Zoom.

Members who are on our email list will receive the meeting link and access information, and we ask that our younger, more tech-savvy members do their best to help parents, grandparents or other family members access the meeting if they need help to do so. 

If you are a CSCS member in good standing and have not received an email with the Zoom link by Nov. 14, please send an email to can_slo@hotmail.com and we will make sure to get that information to you.

Thanks in advance for your patience as we navigate doing an online meeting for the first time!

— the CSCS Board of Directors

Folklorama 2019

We are just over a week away from the opening day of Folklorama 2019!

The Slovenija Pavilion runs during week 1, which is Aug.4-10, at Bronx Park Community Centre (720 Henderson Hwy.)

This is a new venue for us this year, but we’re hoping it will be a good fit for our community! As always, our dance and vocal groups will perform three shows a night — 6:45 p.m., 8:15 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. — and we have a few new things this year as well. We’ve partnered with local brewery Farmery to design our own beer can. Our specially designed Triglav beer, a Slovenian-style lager, will be available at the pavilion all week!

We’ve also taken steps to reduce our styrofoam and plastic use, and have invested in recyclable plates and containers.

Folklorama is continuing to do online ticketing, which they implemented last year, in addition to in-person ticketing at the door. You can find out more information at folklorama.ca.

As always, we are looking for volunteers to help set up on Saturday (Aug. 3), work during the week at the pavilion and help with take-down on Saturday night (Aug. 10). If you’re interested in lending a hand, reach out to CSCS president and pavilion co-ordinator Bryen Lebar at president@canadianslovenian.mb.ca.

We hope to see you out!
