On April 25th 2012, Turkish Cultural Center Connecticut organized the second “Turkish Cultural Day” at the North Lobby of our State’s Capitol Building in Hartford. The event showcased a live performance of Turkish art of Marbling and a display of handmade embroideries. State Senators, Representatives and their legal aides enjoyed a delicious luncheon catered by Saray Turkish Restaurant in West Haven. After the national anthems of United States of America and Turkey the guests were welcomed to the Cultural Day. Speaker of the House Christopher G. Donovan delivered a remark for the day. During his speech Speaker Donovan stressed the importance of cultural interchange and thanked the Turkish-American community in Connecticut for sharing the Turkish culture at this event.
With the presentation of Rep. Kevin Ryan Turkish Cultural Center Connecticut and the Turkish Cultural Day at the State Capitol were recognized by the Connecticut General Assembly House of Representatives.
