Hrvatsko Selo presents:
We are proud to be the venue of choice for Hrvatsko Selo’s Karaoke Night. These events, as important as they are for the fundraising of other Croatian organizations in our community, solidify the relationships and connections we have with other organizations. The Croatian Sports and Community Centre at GMR looks forward to only strengthen these ties in the future with Hrvatsko Selo and any and all organizations in our larger community.
There will be a blood drive in our main hall hosted by the Canadian Blood Services.  We are proud to be partners with such a tremendous organization and hosting an upcoming blood drive.   What greater gift is there than the gift of life? That’s exactly what every blood donation delivers. Blood and blood products are a critical part of everyday medical care including major surgeries, medical procedures, cancer treatments and managing disease. Blood Donor Clinic at GMR 166 Green Mountain Road East, Stoney Creek November 11, 2016 3pm – 8pm
Kotlovina 2016 Recap We would like to thank all of the participating cooks, our very generous sponsors, and of course all of you who came to eat!  This was yet another great event and has easily become a tradition for our members and guests.  In many ways, there are no winners during a day when all of the food, laughter and socializing was top notch all around.
That said, those in attendance were asked for their favourites and to cast their votes, below are those results:
  1. Tom Saic
  2. Mark Vuksan
  3. Joe Skaljin
Until next year, eat well everyone!!!
