Celebrating Maslenitsa

Dear members and friends of the Russian-Canadian Cultural Aid Society and Heritage

I would like to congratulate you on organizing the Celebration of Maslenitsa and continuing the
Russian tradition of Spring festivity here in Toronto.

Thank you for your hard work on revitalizing the John Bales House in Earl Bales Park and we look forward to the new programming and resources you will bring to our community in the nearest future.

As a chair of the Community Development and Recreation Committee, I understand the vital role diverse cultural groups play in making Toronto a successful and vibrant city. The Russian- Canadian Cultural Aid Society and Heritage Foundation is a great example of such an organization. Your promotion of Russian culture contributes to the energy and creativity of our city.

Best wishes for your continued success and Happy Maslenitsa! Sincerely,

Councillor James Pasternak
Ward 10, York Centre
Chair, Community Development and Recreation Committee

61st Russian Gala Ball

The 61st Russian Gala Ball took place on November 6, 2015. This year the Gala Ball was dedicated to the 175th anniversary of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. It was a fabulous and exciting event! A beautiful venue; a wonderful welcoming music quartet, elegant guests, delicious food, charming débutantes, an excellent concert program, a great orchestra and dancing.

We wish to express with all our hearts a sincere thank you to all organizers, sponsors, donors, volunteers and débutantes for their efforts, enthusiasm and support that helped us run our Russian Gala Ball this year. We also thank all our guests for attending and supporting our event and for your love and passion for our Russian culture. We eagerly look forward to seeing all of you at next year's Russian Gala Ball.
