100 Years For Hungarian Self Culture Society

The Hungarian Self Culture Society of Welland, founded in 1921, is marking its 100th anniversary and is feeling the community’s love. On Saturday, the Main Street Bridge was illuminated in Hungary’s colours, red, green and white as a tribute to the major milestone. And one of Welland’s decorative floral beds has a gorgeous display in honor of the anniversary. The bed, at the intersection of Prince Charles Drive and First Avenue, has a floral replica of the Hungarian Hall on Hellems Avenue, the Society’s headquarters, as one of its features, shown top right. Pandemic protocols muted activities this year – no banquet with guest speakers and course after course of superb Hungarian cuisine, for example – but anniversary celebrations may be held in the next.
