Seedrioru VI - See On Eesti
Seedrioru is a not-for-profit, volunteer-based cultural center built by Estonian Canadians and situated on the banks of the Grand River west of Elora, Ontario, Canada. Since 1955 it has been known as the "largest congregator" of Estonians in North America through its Laulupäev Song Festival, although its primary function is to operate and sustain an Estonian summer camp that promotes Estonian language, music, dance and arts. Children attending are generally from Canada and the United States, but some travel from as far away as the United Kingdom and Estonia. Seedrioru continues to be a venue for Estonian Song Festivals, fundraisers and Estonian cultural events. It was created through an association of four Southern Ontario Estonian societies located in Hamilton, London, Kitchener, and St. Catherines. The societies annually appoint eight directors at the Seedrioru Annual General Meeting to form a Juhatus, or board of directors, who volunteer to organize the yearly activities of the camp in accordance with their bylaws and regulations. Seedrioru is supported by the Estonian Foundation of Canada.
