Members and friends of the Swiss community.

By all means, the year 2020 was not an easy one.


Everything about this event is prepared months in advance. In the current situation, with so many uncertainties, it would be illusory to begin to prepare, to take all the necessaries steps, thinking that this celebration could be held like for the last forty years and more.

Let’s hope that the year 2022 will bring us some pleasant surprises and that we can celebrate in great style!

Our wishes are for you to stay healthy.

Your 2021 Committee
