You are cordially invited to attend the Second Annual Fair of Romanians in New England, on Saturday, the 3rd of December 2011, between the hours of 4 and 8 PM, at Newton Lower Falls Community Center (545 Grover St., Newton, MA).

Those organizations that do not have representatives on site can send promotional materials that will be displayed on a special stand.
