On Friday 28th August 2009, while on a trip to the USA, I decided on my own merits to arrange an important meeting with the Albanian Islamic Cultural Centre (AICC), who are located on Staten Island in New York.
I have heard about the AICC on many occasions, especially from Albanians living in Australia who had visited New York, as well as family and friends from overseas, however this was my first visit to this well organised establishment.
On Sunday 2nd August 2009, the Albanian Australian Islamic Society (AAIS) participated in the yearly National Plant a Tree Day event.
It was a great day for the families who met at Quarries Park in Clifton Hill. The children all learnt how to successfully plant trees and everyone enjoyed the event.
