We are happy to announce that TAACO’s executive committee is in the process of organizing yet another great event for this year’s Turkish Republic Day Ball.
We have several special guests this year; we invited Turkish General Consul in Chicago Mr. Fatih Yildiz and he is planning to join us with his family. In addition, Ohio Congressman Mr. Steve Stivers accepted our invitation. Also, Mr. Yenal Kucuker and his colleagues from ATAA will try to travel from Washington DC one more time to meet Turkish Americans and students living in Central Ohio.
We hope that most of you can join us to celebrate this big event together with our guests.
IMPORTANT DEADLINE: Please respond by October 21st as TAACO needs us to submit them a Guest List for reserving the room and other arrangments.
