FECC Dies Natalis 2020 cancelled .

– new date 2021: 8 – 10 October next year instead!!

Dear FECC members

Dear Friends of the FECC Network 

Dear Carnival Friends

Dear Host of Dies Natalis 2021 in Neuhausen/Spree, Germany

Mayor Dieter Perko

Sigtuna/Sweden 2020-06-29

I hereby forward a mail/letter from Neuhausen/Spree.

It is about cancellation of FECC Dies Natalis 2020. Anyhow we find this letter also positive as we also get a solution: 

– new date next year for FECC Dies Natalis 2021:  

8 – 10 October – in Neuhausen/Spree in Germany

Of course it is very sad with all cancelled of carnivals, FECC Convention 2020 and now also FECC Dies Natalis 2020.

We all understand and fully support the reason for this decision and of course it is the only right decision following all restrictions from governments and authorities.

We want to express our great appreciation that both Hosts/Organizers of FECC Convention in Ptuj, Slovenia, and FECC Dies Natalis in Neuhausen/Spree, Germany, have given FECC the possibility to have the cancelled meetings next year, 2021, instead. EXCELLENT!!!!! 

We do hope that the Corona as soon as possible we be under full control so we soon can start to meet on carnivals and other events.

We all do hope that step by step our borders will open and that we soon will have a chance to meet again with all members, friends, families etc.

We all still have to be very careful – health is of course first priority.

We all need carnivals – it is a very important part of our life!!!!

Please come back soon!!!!

For the time being we wish you all the best and within these times more than ever good health!

Thank you Ptuj and Neuhausen/Spree for your solutions 2021!!!

We´ll soon meet again!!!

Take care!! – Keep Safe!!!
