Are you “Proud to be a Macedonian”?

The United Macedonian-Americans of Detroit began with the premier viewing event of the film ‘A Name is a Name’.  Since then we have put on two additional events, one each year, and the Macedonian community in Detroit came, enjoyed themselves and met new friends and visited with friends that they had not seen in many years.

We also raised monies from our events, that enabled to make significant contributions to a number of charities with in MK. (see pictures on other pages)

I would like to invite you to come to one of our upcoming meetings and be a part of our future.  

Our brief meeting are held once each month and there we do our planning for future events and fund raisers.  We are an informal group of like minded Macedonians -(Americans) who would like to build a more cohesive community of Macedonians here in Detroit.  Also, we strive to make our heritage and ethnicity more visible to all of the Detroit community.

If you would like to get involved!  If you would like to make a difference in our local MK community!  And if you would just enjoy working with your fellow Macedonians…then call me for all details.

Tom Bayoff  248-351-1818  or

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!
