Members of the Southern Volta Association, SVA, celebrated their unique proud culture and heritage with a memorable party to commemorate the New Year at Matteson Illinois. The event took place yesterday, January 25 2020. Members also used the occasion to reestablish bond, camaraderie and relationships. The celebration drew about 50 strong members, their families and friends.
The President of the group, Mr. Paul Sogbe, congratulated members of the SVA and noted that though the group is still in its infancy, it has been able to complete charitable programs which benefited the poor in both the USA and Ghana. He appealed to members to continue their strong support of the organization.
The treasurer of the group, Mr. Donatus Kotogbor, reminded members of upcoming charitable activities lined up for this year. He also noted that members will be traveling to Toronto ,Canada , to participate in the annual Hogbeza there. This is in preparation of celebrating the historic cultural landmark of Ewes migration from Notsie to the present-day Ghana in Chicago.
This year’s New Year celebration was one of a kind as members were not only entertained to the best lyrics DJ Teddy had in his arsenal, but also experienced great cuisines, culture and many more.
