...was founded 40 years ago.  Without a doubt, a wonderful opportunity to celebrate.

The Club evolved from the Austrian Club Edelweiss, as many members were Burgenlaenders. 

On this website, under the ABOUT US section, the history of this community is recorded. 

We were especially honoured by the visit of a government delegation from Burgenland, headed by the Governor, Mr. Hans Niessl, and the President of the Burgenlaedische Gemeinschaft, HR Dr. Walter Dujmovits.  The Burgenlaendische Gemeinschaft is a world wide organization of Burgenlaenders. Just last year, the Burgenlaendische Gemeinschaft celebrated its 60th anniversary!

Governor Niessl took the opportunity to award distinguished members of the Burgenlaender Club Toronto.

Awards were presented to: 

Mrs. Gabriele Grof, current President of the Club
Mr. Roy Perl, former President of the Club
Bernadette Toner, presently responsible for the distribution of scholarships
Joe Eberhardt, is (and has been) on the Board of Directors for many years
Eva Hergovich, editor of the website and the newsletter for the Club

We would like to thank Governor Niessl, and the delegation and HR Dr. Walter Dujmovits, Mrs. Helene Dujmovits and Mr. Erwin Weinhofer, the Vice President for their attendance. We thank them for their kind words, and for having awarded distinguished members of our community.
