I had a great experience helping and volunteering with Arizona Russian Center. They are very fun! They are always trying to plan events to celebrate Russian holidays and set up all sorts of fun ways to bring the Russian culture into the area and share it with everyone through dances, dinner parties, and even dressing up as Russian characters and visiting schools and theater. Hopefully they will find a way to expand more int he future.

Я очень рада ,что имею в своём городе ,такой центр! Где люди помогают друг другу, знакомятся, знакомят со сверстниками и развивают культуру и исторические ценности своих детей. Прекрасно организованые детские мероприятия, мои дети просто в восторге. Так-же прекрасно спланироавные и подготовленые праздники для взрослых . Теплота, доброта, как дома! Отдельное спасибо Ольге Шахеевой за тяжёлый и позитивный труд!!!

Great organization, helped me to complete documentation for passport and organized sessions to receive the passport so we do not have to go to Sun Francisco twice. Saved me a lot of money. I also like this organization for the efforts to bring Russian culture through offering variety of activities for major Russian Holidays. It brings together people of different ethnic and religious back ground with the common interest/love for the former Soviet Union/Russian culture and language. I hope they continue their great work!

In Phoenix AZ we have a substantial Russian – speaking community, and a lot of people who are interested in Russian/former Soviet Union language, culture, traditions, history, etc.. The Arizona Russian Center, organizes variety of the events, which provides an excellent opportunity for any interested to learn the culture, meeting new people, practice Russian, showcase talents, and celebrate traditional Holydays. One of the latest and big events, which was organized by ARC was a New Year celebration. The event was fun, artistic and very interesting. Participants who are new to the Russian culture, learned about the Grand Father Frost (Ded Moroz) and his Granddaughter Snow Girl (Snegurochka) and their role in the New Year. I hope we will have more similar opportunities to participate in this kind of events. I also wish for expansion of their organization for additional services and programs, such as language classes, traditional dancing, singing and other.

Я была участником встречи сотрудников Российского Консульства 22 сентября.Встреча происходила в РЦА.В ходе встречи,все собравшиеся имели возможность пообщаться с представителями Консульства,задать вопросы и получить ответы на важные вопросы.В результате этой встречи,у меня были приняты документы на получение нового Российского Паспорта.Я очень благодарна РЦА и лично Ольге Шайхеевой за эту встречу и за всю ее работу.

Я поздравляю работников РЦА и всех соотечественников Аризоны с большим достижением! На этой выездной сессии Консула Генконсульства России в Сан-Франциско 23 сентября, не смотря на предыдущие ограничения, прошёл приём документов у всех нуждающихся в оформлении паспортов РФ. То есть, людям не придётся ехать в Сан-Франциско и тратить большие деньги на этот излишне и искусственно усложнённый процесс. Мы выражаем признательность Варламову Андрею Николаевичу и Успенскому Евгению Евгеньевичу, вошедшим в наше безвыходное положение и изменившим своё намерение принять документы только у инвалидов и ветеранов. Спасибо Русскому Центру Аризоны и всем тем людям, которые заботятся о соотечественниках!

Хочу поблагодарить Ольгу Шайхееву. Абсолютно приятный и ответственный человек. Когда мне было сложно, Русский Центр Аризоны поддержал меня морально и духовно, а так-же помог разобраться во многих юридических вопросах. Спасибо Русскому Центру Аризоны за его работу, и его дружный коллектив.

I am preparing to participate at the Easter Tea party of Arizona Russian Center. This will be real celebration of Russian culture and language! Volunteering for Russian Center gives me opportunity to practice Russian language and to make new Russian friends. Besides that, all meetings are very friendly and happy! Welcome to join!
