Last month, we were thrilled to hear that our former Shepparton Albanian Society President for more than 10 years, Dinny Adem, had been elected as Mayor for Greater Shepparton City Council.

Dinny has been an active member of the Shepparton Albanian community for years, and was instrumental in forming the sister city relationship between Korce and Albania.

On Saturday, 28 November 2015, the Shepparton Albanian Society celebrated the anniversary of Albania’s Declaration of Independence with a function at the GV Hotel, Shepparton, Australia.

As part of the celebrations, a group of local Albanian children performed a series of dances set to traditional music.

Led by teacher Aida Zeqo, opportunities such as these work to ensure the traditions of our culture are kept alive for the next generation of Australian Albanians.
