SERBIAN CULTURAL SOCIETY
Since early 2019, our Executive Board has been working with Prota Obrad Filipovic and St. Simeon Mirotocivi Serbian Orthodox Church on the prospect of constructing a room in their new Heritage Building for our growing inventory of nosnje. The Heritage Building will be constructed on the church grounds and will serve as a space for storage and candle making, among other things. Frula's nosnja room will be approximately 160 square feet, and will be located on the east side of the Heritage Building's main floor. The rough blueprints of the nosnja room can be seen in the picture to the left, which we know is subject to change. Instead of a door opening into the room from within the building we will have a sturdy steel door opening towards the soccer fields, built along the east wall. This will allow us direct access to the room without needing to go through the entire building, and will save us some space as the door will not open into the room. More details will be provided in the coming months as construction of the building continues - please make sure to check back for any new updates!
