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.

Mea gan Gymru arferion a thraddodiadau unigryw ac mae ‘n ofynnol arnom I anrhydeddu ein etifeddiaeth I hybu hyn, mae’r gymdeithas yn trefnu rhagleni gyfarfodydd cymdeithasol yn ystod y flwyddyn. Mae croeso I chwi tmuno.
