This year’s ceremony was organized by Siim Sööt with the luncheon prepared by Mailis Ausmees, Tiina Vilgo and their helpers. Decorations were also done by Mailis and Tiina.

This year’s program featured performances by the Chicago Estonian School students and a short concert by Marina Veiler (piano) and Yuri Orlov (viola). We want to thank our speaker Helga Kalm (the Political Counsellor at the Estonian Embassy in Washington).
