“We have planned a weekend around the homecoming theme,” said Violet Baulin, the cultural director for the Regina Hungarian Cultural and Social Club.

“Many of our members over the years have moved away and not every family has stayed in Regina. This weekend is a homecoming event for all our past, present, and hopefully future members.”

The celebration is meant to look back at the history of the club and all they have accomplished over the last 100 years.

“It’s always good to know your heritage background and I think more people are looking for that,” Baulin said.
