The Shepparton Albanian Moslem Society will be commissioning a commemorative monument in Shepparton’s sister city Korçë.
The monument will be created to honour those who have emigrated from the Korçë region to Shepparton or surrounding towns.
These individuals and families played a crucial role in the formation of the Albanian community in Victoria, and the creation of a sister city relationship between Shepparton and Korçë.
WHERE WILL THE MONUMENT BE BUILT?
The monument will be built at a central garden location in Korce, Albania. We are currently awaiting final approval from the local Council in Korce, and will announce further details once confirmed.
WHEN WILL THE MONUMENT BE CREATED?
Construction of the monument is due to commence in late 2015.
Additional plaque orders will be accepted after this date, however placement of names on the plaque will be favoured to those who order before June 30.
HOW CAN I BE INVOLVED?
You can show your support with two options:
Option one: Buy a plaque
Plaques can be ordered for an individual or a family (see application form for an example). Please note, plaque sizes will remain the same, so the text size for a family plaque will be noticeably smaller compared to an individual plaque.
Cost: $500 per plaque
Option two: Become a sponsor
Individuals, couples or a family can instead choose to become a sponsor and donate funds to the project, with their names engraved at the back of the monument.
Cost: $300 per donation
