Kranjan's in New York held the 2018 Summer Picnic


The greatness of Kraja is its sons and daughters, who gave the nation honor and name all over the world!

The now traditional summer picnic organized by the "Kraja" Association was held on Sunday, June 24, 2018 at the "Craigmeur Recreation Complex" Nature Park on Green Pond Rd Newfoundland, New Jersey. The picnic starts at 9 in the morning and ends at 6 in the evening.

Invitations to picnics are answered by hundreds of local and even wider families. The Krajans defied the busy work schedule and participated massively, spending some very satisfying moments with each other as part of the Krajan community in New York and the surrounding area.

The Consul of the Republic of Kosovo, Mr. Lulzim Krasniqi, the Imam of the Albanian-American Islamic Center in Queens, Mr. Edin Gjoni, and the well-known journalist Mr. Beqir Sina, who also reports in the media everything about our picnic, honored us with their presence.

Kraja and its citizens have been an important factor in the national historical moment and an uncompromising fighter in the defense of our cultural values. Our community is also an important factor in New York with the surrounding area and most dignified represents the cultural and national values best demonstrated in the last picnic.

As always, Kranjan's have responded to the call of the homeland with bravery and generosity, an answer which is not absent this time either. Thanks to their generosity, the Kraja Association provides free meals. Once again, special thanks to the sponsors of the picnic:

- Unique iron works owned by Mr. Skender Popin

- Kanaqi painting & renovation owned by Mr. Sami Kanaqi

- Tuscan Table owned by Mr. Xhevat Koliqin

- Franks Pizza owned by Mr. Bahri Vuka and ILmi Milla
