FROM BOSKO OZEGOVIC in SERBIA:
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We are currently looking to purchase a piece of land just outside of Beograd in Serbia. Our plan is to build a special hall for the Krajisnici as there is no such center in Serbia. The hall will be called “Spomen Dom Vojvode Momcila Djujica” in honor of WWII Chetnik commander Voyvoda Momchilo Djujich, who passed away on September 11, 1999 in San Diego, California.
As the years go on our brothers and sisters who are scattered throughout Serbia have no place to meet, hold events such a dances and weddings, and a base for the Pokret Srpskih Chetnika u Otadzbini (Movement of Serbian Chetniks in the Homeland). We cannot let our culture and people drift apart.
If all goes as planned, we will have purchased a piece of land, set the foundation, and completed a statue of Voyvoda Djujich in time for Djurdjevdan (St. George's Slava) May 6, 2011 . Beginning work on the actual Spomen Dom (the center) is planned for the summer of 2011. We are looking for a "lot" that is roughly 1/2 to 1 hectacre (10,000 square meters). Ideally, we would like to be able to purchase a piece of land large enough to accomodate the hall, a parking lot, and outdoor picnics. Everything will depend on finding a piece of land near Beograd at a decent price and how much money we can raise. We would appreciate any help we can get, both at home and from the diaspora, to make this happen.
This initiative is being sponsored by the Pokret Srpskih Chetnika u Otadzbini (Movement of Serbian Chetniks in the Homeland) with the help of members and donors worldwide.
Please forward this to all Serbian patriots on your contact lists. Also, we would like to possibly send Kapetan Jovan Adamovic to Canada, the U.S.A, Australia or the U.K. Since Vojvoda Rade Cubrilo cannot travel outside Serbia, we feel that Kapetan Jovan would be a fine choice to speak on behalf of our Pokret in Serbia. If this sounds interesting to any of you, let me know. It would be a nice gesture and interesting to have him speak at Drazin Dan.
Just imagine it: Establishing a hall in Serbia where all of our kids worldwide will be welcome, and folklore groups, choirs and delegations can meet just like back in the old days, only this time in our Fatherland!
Brotherly greetings from the homeland,
Bratski Pozdrav iz Otadzbine,
