Eesti Vabariik 105!

Join in celebrating Estonia's 105th anniversary of independence on February 24th at Heavenly Cafe in Collingwood, Ontario!

The gathering, organized by Estonian Arts Centre, the charity associated with KESKUS International Estonian Centre, and Georgian Bay Eestlased, will begin at 7pm at Heavenly Cafe, with snacks courtesy of EAC, and a cash bar.

Heli Vogrin, Heavenly Cafe proprietor

Heavenly Café is located at 10 Keith Ave, Unit 301, Collingwood Ontario and is run by the wonderful Heli Vogrin. Georgian Bay Eestlased formed as more and more Estonians moved to the Blue Mountain and Collingwood areas and the group has previously organized a pub night for Vabariigi aastapäev.

This year, come hear the latest updates on the KESKUS project and raise a glass of cheer for EV105, with fellow Estonians, in Collingwood!

Everyone is welcome to attend, and please pre-register by February 22nd as space is limited. Besides, Collingwood is in the snow belt - if the storm of the century blows through that day, we’ll want to send you an update, so be sure to register!
