"I joined the Hispanic Society when I arrived to Australia in 1982. From that time till today I have enjoyed many tertulias …wonderful talks, lovely music, exotic meals and plenty of dancing…It is heartwarming to meet Australians who are attracted to our culture and traditions, this makes the tapestry of our celebrations..."
Impressions from Ana Irene Gioino-Blythman
I congratulate the 70th anniversary of the Hispanic Society of Victoria! In our community, this historic event is a cultural triumph in the face of the cultural and language challenges faced by thousands of migrants in Victoria. I congratulate all its leaders who for decades have carried out important social and cultural days in a totally voluntary way, aware of the benefit it brings to all! The celebrations of the Hispanic Society of Victoria contribute significantly to the multicultural unity and diversity of our state, and therefore to its harmony. For many more decades of life and celebrations! Thank you for existing and serving!
