A new year, a new beginning. We welcome 2014 and the freshly arrived winter chill and have decided to celebrate with a long overdue update on what we have been doing.
The year 2013 ended on a social note for the ESU of Estonia. In November we had two back-to-back events: a meeting with the US Ambassador Jeffrey Levine in his residence and the first fascinating pop culture discussion evening in what we hope to be many in a series under the name Pop! Goes the Culture. December saw us invited to a Christmas reception at HM Ambassador Chris Holtby’s residence, where ESU of Estonia Chairman Zinaida Jevgrafova thanked those who have contributed to the organization’s activities financially or otherwise in 2013: Chris Holtby, Alex Volohhonski, Phillip Marsdale, and Triinu Lepp.
You can see photos of our meeting with Ambassador Levine here and find photos from the Christmas reception below.
In January we were all kindly invited by the US Embassy to a free movie screening at KUMU, where we watched My Own Private Idaho (1991).
The first ESU event of this year will take place in February. We will publish more details about our upcoming activities soon, so stay tuned!
