It is hard to believe that you are celebrating such a special anniversary – thirty years of active community involvement. Countless successful projects aimed at maintaining and strengthening friendship between our two countries as well as stimulating interest in Russian culture and history have been and remain important and colourful events for both the Russian and English-speaking New Zealanders. Tremendous energy and super efficiency of the society’s all-time secretary Janet Frank evokes our admiration and respect! Thanks to her efforts and enthusiasm the Friendship Society is known not only in Hamilton, but also throughout New Zealand.
On behalf of the Editorial Board of “Our Harbour”, we sincerely and with great pleasure extend our heartfelt congratulations on the Society’s anniversary! We have no doubt that you will have many more interesting projects ahead! And we hope to continue our successful cooperation for more decades to come!
