Romanian Ball 2012 – Report


We would like to thank everyone who attended the first Romanian Ball in New England! We were overwhelmed by the numerous attendance (over 300!) and we were happy to see the enthusiasm and joy of those who wanted to celebrate with us Romanina’s National Day! We apologize deeply for the imperfections and the shortcomings and we promised that next year we will do a bigger/better event!
