EANC HOSTS “ESTONIANS IN AMERICA” PANEL DISCUSSION

To mark the 70 years since the September 1944 flight from the Soviet invasion of Estonia, the Estonian American National Council will host a special panel discussion on Saturday, September 27, 2014, in Stamford, Connecticut, at the Stamford Sheraton Hotel.

The public is invited to the free, English-language panel discussion on the topic:  “Estonians in America: Past, Present, and Future.”  Join us at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel to listen to the following distinguished panelists present their views:
Arne Kalm and Arved Plaks will review “Estonians in America: The Past.”
Priit Vesilind, Laas Leivat, and Marcus Kolga will discuss “Estonians in America: The Present.”
Mirjam Krull, Andres Simonson, Andrus Viirg, and Toivo Tänavsuu will give their thoughts on “Estonians in America: The Future.“

Panel discussion moderators will be Linda Rink, Maia Linask, and Eric Suuberg.
Registration for the free session will begin at 1:30 PM, and the panel discussion will commence promptly at 2:00 PM.

Plan to come for the panel discussion and stay for cocktails at 6:30 PM and the subsequent EANC awards dinner, also at the Sheraton!  The dinner will honor the 2014 recipients of EANC’s awards to recognize the work of exceptional individuals or entities in preserving and nurturing our Estonian heritage, culture and language in the United States, or for outstanding contributions in a field of endeavor.
