The island of Krk is known for its numerous emigrants that have found their new homes and employments in the USA, especially in New York and its surroundings. The process of emigration set in back in the 19th century for economic and political reasons. Among the emigrants from the Krk island those from Omišalj and Dubašnica are the strongest in number. It was therefore understandable that with time they would start organizing themselves in the new homeland into ethnic associations. However, there were also some local societies so that in 1940 the emigrants from Dubašnica founded an organisation called the Dubašnica Social Club of America Inc. The club’s rules, to be found here in an appendix, were approved on May 20th, 1940. They state that the mission of the club is „to establish and maintain closeness among those born in Dubašnica, members of their families and descendants, to strengthen friendship among the members” as well as to help the members gain US citizenship. Thomas Samara was elected the first president. The club maintained various activities: social meetings, parties, common dinners, picnics, Holy Masses for the deceased, relief actions for the old country. The club still exists today and is accordingly active among our emigrants, which have been living in New York for many generations now, gathering and reminding them of their origin and the old country of their parents and relatives.
