In September 2011, the Estonian World Council sent out a press release saying ESTOs would no longer be organized and the formal ceremony ending ESTOs would take place at the West Coast Estonian Days in San Francisco in 2013. Clearly, the world today is today different than in 1972 when ESTOs began.
However, this doesn’t mean that the Estonians that are spread out around the world don’t long to get together. The question is only what’s the best way to do this? So we started a Global ESTO community on Facebook for this reason. To collect ideas from all of you who are interested. We think the best time for the next “updated ESTO” would be the 2014 Song Festival. Post your ideas and old photos on the Facebook Global ESTO page…Together we’ll think of something great!
Next ESTO after San Francisco….?
