Suceava is the largest city and the seat of Suceava County, in the Bukovina region, in north-eastern Romania. The city was the capital of the Principality of Moldavia from 1388 to 1565

For nearly 200 years the city of Suceava was the capital of the Principality of Moldavia and the main residence of the Moldavian princes (between 1388 and 1565). The city was the capital of the lands of Stephen the Great, one of the pivotal figures in Romanian history, who died in Suceava in 1504. During the rule of Alexandru Lăpuşneanu, the seat was moved to Iaşi in 1565 and Suceava failed to become the capital again. Michael the Brave captured the city in 1600 during the Moldavian Magnate Wars as he became the ruler of Wallachia, Moldavia and Transylvania, but he was defeated the same year.

Together with the rest of Bukovina, Suceava was under the rule of the Habsburg Monarchy (later Austria-Hungary) from 1775 to 1918; the border of Habsburg domains passed just south-east of the city. At the end of World War I, it became part of Greater Romania.

Posted in JCI Locals, JCI Short NewsTagged , , Leave a Comment on JCI Vernon’s members keeps active

Entrepreneurial spirit and community involvement have come together.


Vernon’s Junior Chamber International has been involved in considerable charitable work in the community during the past year and was recently recognized for it.

“I am very proud of our members’ hard work,” said Daniel Proulx, the newly elected president of the chapter.

“Their dedication has made this community a better place and getting recognized for those efforts is the icing on the cake.”

Proulx has been with the JCI for the past three years and was elected president earlier in the year.
Proulx, 30, moved to Vernon five years ago from Calgary.

The JCI is a non-profit organization that was established to raise funds for the community. The membership is comprised of 19 to 40-year-old businesspeople who want to make a positive difference on the community.

The JCI provides people the opportunity to develop the leadership skills, social responsibility and entrepreneurship necessary to create positive change in the community.

The JCI’s 15th year in Vernon was a successful one, as it hauled in some hardware at the JCI regional convention May 3 at the Ramada Hotel in Penticton.

JCI Vernon won the 2013 regional chapter of the year award.

This award was in recognition of the chapter’s ability to succeed in four areas of opportunity: individual, community, business and international.

Last year, it organized the JCI Hospital Gala, an alternative gift fair and teamed up with JCI Harare, in Zimbabwe, to facilitate training for community leaders.

Sue Solymosi was also honoured with the regional member of the year award and Alora McGrandle received an honourable mention as the chapter’s rookie of the year.

JCI Vernon is in a region with Kelowna, the Kootenays, Abbotsford, Vancouver, Penticton and Prince George. It is also affiliated with JCI Canada and Junior Chamber International.

JCI Vernon  is currently working with Funtastic to help organize volunteers to sell beverage tickets for the music festival.

Proulx says JCI provides a great opportunity for people to network outside of work.

“I really enjoy the people I get to meet, it’s so fun,” he said.

“Giving back to the community is so important, it’s the most selfish thing I do. I feel so good about it afterwards.”

JCI’s next meeting is Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce (Century 21 boardroom).

Posted in JCI Locals, JCI Short NewsTagged , Leave a Comment on Avignon presents the town’s history in Comics


WHEN ? 2015


Dépoussiérer Avignon et valoriser son histoire par le biais du 9ème art tout en la rendant accessible aux petits comme aux grands, voilà le challenge que s’apprêtent à relever les 8 membres impliqués dans le projet. Pour Loëtitia Fijalowicz, directrice du projet, il s’agit avant tout d’intéresser les habitants de la cité papale : « C’est en discutant avec les Avignonnais que l’on se rend compte qu’ils ne connaissent pas forcément les personnalités et les événements marquants de leur ville, une histoire qui est tellement riche et souvent peu mise en valeur ». En effet si certains monuments sont mondialement connus comme le Pont Saint-Bénézet, combien savent que c’est un écrivain avignonnais (Pierre Boulle) qui est l’auteur de la « Planète des Singes » et du « Pont de la rivière Kwai » ?

Et c’est au dessinateur Romain Lecoq que reviendra la tâche de faire vivre Avignon sur le papier. Réalisée en couleur et dans un style moderne, la BD s’appuiera sur des faits réels et comprendra plusieurs histoires, comme l’explique Loëtitia : « nous allons mettre en image huit saynètes situées à des époques différentes et traitant de thèmes différents, le tout étalé sur 56 pages. Et toutes les histoires seront liées par un fil conducteur ». Mais ce n’est pas tout car plusieurs surprises attendent le lecteur : « nous avons fait appel à des illustrateurs connus, comme Jean-Charles Kraehn, qui viendront faire du hors-texte et nous allons placer des flash codes qui redirigeront le lecteur vers de la documentation historique en lien avec l’histoire contée ».

Mais pour que le projet puisse arriver à son terme, l’équipe va devoir partir à la recherche de financement : « nous sommes tout d’abord allés voir la mairie et le conseil général qui se sont montrés très emballés affirme Loëtitia. Mais il nous faut absolument trouver 15 000 euros pour que la BD puisse exister. C’est pourquoi nous lançons un appel à financement via la technique du crowdfunding sur le site ». Plusieurs tarifs sont mis en ligne, il y en aura pour toutes les bourses avec une récompense à la clé pour les plus généreux : « les cinq premières personnes qui feront un don de 200 euros se verront croquées par notre dessinateur. Elles apparaîtront dans l’histoire ! ». La sortie est prévue pour le printemps 2015.
