i wefan swyddogol Cymdeithas Gymreig Calgary

The society has been in existence since 1906 and is one of the oldest such societies in Alberta. One of the primary aims of the society is to provide a focal and meeting point for those of Welsh origin or descent. Individuals with an interest in Wales and things Welsh are equally welcome.

As a society, we encourage individuals to take pride in our Welsh heritage and culture and to perpetuate the traditions and customs that are unique to Wales. To do this, the society organizes and celebrates a number of social and cultural events throughout the year. We invite you to join us at one of these events.

Sefydlwyd y Gymdeithas yn 1906, ac felly, mae’n un o’r cymdeithasau hynaf yn Alberta. Un o amcanion y Gymdeithas yw crue lle I gyfarfod fel Cymry ‘ar wasgar’. Mae croeso cynnes hefyd, I ymuno a’r gymdeithas I sicrhau dyfodol ein diwylliant Cymreig.

PWY OEDD EVAN THOMAS? WHO WAS EVAN THOMAS? Hugh Evan Thomas 1862-1928, from Neath, Wales, had a fine career in the British navy where he ended his career as a 'commander-in-chief'. He was commander of several battleships throughout his career, fighting in the Battle of Jutland in WW1, 1916.
SO WHY POST ABOUT A WELSHMAN? Because of his outstanding career, a mountain in the Opal Range of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta was given his name - Mount Evan Thomas! And yesterday we hiked along the Evan Thomas creek through beautiful ravines to reach the 'Green Monster' - a spectacular frozen waterfall...Enjoy the photographs ..perhaps too many...
