AmCham celebrates the US Independence Day


AmCham celebrates the US Independence Day

AmCham Albania has gloriously celebrated the US Independence Day, in the valued company of over 700 guests. Among the participants, there were members of AmCham and the US community to Albania.
A live band, musical show, decorations and typical American food were the elements that accompanied the celebrations of the most important day in the history of America.
The Executive Director of AmCham, Ms. Enida Bezhani opened the event introducing the elements and the novelties of the party, inviting the guests to enjoy the beauty and the elements of this traditional celebration.

The Chairman of AmCham, Mr. Mark Crawford, greeted the guests and commended the spirit of the celebration and the powerful message it conveys from a generation to the other.
The culminating moment were the greeting words by our friend, the US Ambassador, Mr. Donald Lu, who speaking of this tradition and celebration shared:

“I’ll end with a quotation from the great American author and humorist Erma Bombeck:

“You have to love a nation that celebrates its Independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”

The guests enjoyed the party greatly in the company of the tunes by the live band “NA” and the DJ. The LED screen, which was yet another novelty besides the band, added a new spirit to the party. The guests happily used the patriotic symbols and the historical images to take photos with Ambassador Lu. The party went on until late hours of the night, culminating with the fireworks show, which is the staple of this event.

The young volunteers of the Junior Achievement Program lent a helpful hand to the organization of this event.

We wish all our friends and members, Happy Fourth of July!
