Also for those interested ... the Non Profit Organization Croatian Returnees Club in Zadar is changing its name and statute to Club of Croatian Returnees and Immigrants ... so includes all Immigrants in the Zadar area. We have about 50 people in the NPO now, since we have taken over from the old board and what was an inactive NPO for the last 7 years ... the 50 people invited to the first get-together of Croatian Returnees last month, agreed to change the name and statute for the NPO to Immigrants as we all have the same issues in Croatia. We hate the burearacy here too and want to help new people to settle in to the community ... one member is working on getting an information office set up. 12 of us have agreed to be active members ... meaning on the board etc ... and who will attend NPO meetings to pass and manage the activites of the NPO.....
So ex-pats in Zadar you are welcome ... just message me and I can meet with you and tell you all about our group over coffee.
