"SERBIA: FACES AND PLACES" generously donated to the guests of the Karageorgevich State Funeral/Memorial Service by American Serbs Bill Dorich and Vladeta Rajic

U.S. Serb gift to Royal mourners

The reburial of King Peter II Karageorgevich and other royals at Oplenac on Sunday, May 26, 2013 was a state occasion attended by both domestic dignitaries and international officials. In an appropriate initiative to leave a positive impression of the Serbian nation on foreign guests, the Royal Family requested 500 copies of the book Serbia: Faces & Places written by American Serbs Val Rajic and William Dorich who donated the books for the event. They were presented as a hostess gift to VIPs at the luncheon after Sunday's funeral services.

Nine donations were made
to contribute to the $2,800 in air freight:

His Royal Highness $1,500; Alex Machaskee $300; Vera Pirocanac $100; D. J. Vujasinovic & Adrian Hartog $100; Dushica & John Protic $100; Ken Pavichevich $100; Dijana & Mark Jovanovic $100; Dr. Biljana Simsic $100; and Mildred & Ron Radakovich $100 for a total of $2,500.  The balance was paid by GM Books who donated 500 books at the current reduced retail price of $15.00 per book or $7,500.
