- 1 October 1996
Croatian Cultural Society president Mirijan Kostovic (left) and secretary Drago Krzanic (right), dance in front of their premises in Hania street, Mount Victoria, Wellington, with the Society's new sign. Photograph taken on 18 March 1996 by Evening Post staff photographer Craig Simcox.
Original newspaper caption reads: "Laughter and tears mingled when Wellington's Croatian community finally got the chance to put their country's name over the door of their clubrooms. The Croatian Culture [sic] Society has had a few name changes in the past six years, as their countrymen have been fighting for independence. It started as the Yugo-Slav Club in 1938 and remained that way for 55 years. 'In 1993, due to the changes in our homeland, we decided to change it,' club president Marijan Kostovic said. 'A lot of people had sentimental memories of Yugoslavia and did not want to accept the changes happening there, but we could no longer call ourselves the Yugo-Slav Club. We chose the Dalmatian Club because most members were from that area". (Evening Post, 18 March 1996)
