THE CHANCELLERY OF
H.R.H. CROWN PRINCE Alexander II
OF YUGOSLAVIA

CHARITY ACTIVITIES TO AID CHILANDAR CONTINUE
Belgrade, 19 June 2004 – HRH Crown Prince
Alexander II hosted a reception for the members of Historical
Society from Sombor at The Royal Palace today. They donated two
paintings: “Our fields” by Sava Stojkov, who could not personally
hand it over because of illness, and “Times go by”, that was handed
over by the author, Pavle Blesic.
At the beginning the guests were welcomed by HRH
Crown Prince Alexander II who expressed his pleasure for so many of
our painters joining the charity program in aid of reconstruction of
Chilandar monastery that was recently devastated by fire, and added:

“Our working together to promote our culture and
art will improve our image in the world in the best possible way and
show that we are a people with great history and cultural heritage.”

After the reception the guests took a tour of The
Royal and The White Palace escorted by the Chief of Cabinet of HRH
Crown Prince Alexander II, Mr. Dusan Babac.
All the art works donated through this program
will be exhibited at an auction that will be organized in autumn at
The Royal Palace in Dedinje. All the proceeds will be in aid of
reconstruction of Chilandar monastery, that was visited by HRH Crown
Prince Alexander II on 8 March, immediately after the disastrous
fire.
