The United Hungarian Societies held its annual meeting on Saturday, January 18th at 10:00 am.

There were present 32 delegates from local Hungarian organizations. The session was officially opened by Michael Horvath who thanked all the delegates for their hard work and dedication to the Hungarian community thus contributing to the retention of its ethnic identity.

The meeting continued with itemizing the diverse Hungarian events – a vast list, organized and held by the diverse local Hungarian societies and organizations in 2013. The treasurer’s report was presented by Andrea Lazar.
