It isn’t only in Dubrovnik that the day of the patron saint of the city, St. Blaise, is celebrated. On the day of the reopening of the restored Church of St. Blaise in the Old City of Dubrovnik, on Saturday the 30th of January 30, the Day of St. Blaise was marked in New York. The Dubrovnik Club in New York celebrated the 1044th day of St. Blaise and at the same time marked the 75th anniversary of the club.
The celebrations, which were held in the Chart House Restaurant, were attended by the Croatian Consul in New York Spomenka Cek who read a message from the Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.
After the national anthems of the US and Croatia, and of course most importantly the hymn of St. Blaise the entertainment program began.
