London Ontario

The social and cultural club Triglav was established in 1959 by the local Slovenian community. A hall was purchased in the city, which served as a meeting place for all Slovenians of the London area. Language assistance and other aid was made available to new immigrants.
About five years ago the association purchased a farm on Highway 22 outside of London. A modem hall was built on the grounds and the new centre was officially opened in June, 1980. The activities and organizations of the society include four folk dance groups, a Slovenian library, a men's choral group, lawn bowling and other sports. Dances, picnics, and national celebrations are held regularly. Participation in the new multicultural festival Cavalcade has become a recent highlight. Triglav has about one hundred members at the present time.
