titleOR – Lithuanian Independence Day Celebration

Lithuanian Independence Day Celebration

Saturday, February 24 at 5 pm
Latvian house (5500 SW Dosch Rd., Portland, OR 97239).

February 16, 2018 marks the CENTENNIAL of the declaration of Lithuania‘s independence. What we celebrate this year is not one date but an entire century of the success story created by the people of Lithuania and the Lithuanians living abroad: our grandparents, great-grandparents, parents, and us. Many of us still cherish in our families live memories of the signatories, diplomats, farmers, freedom fighters, priests, athletes, teachers, the Righteous among the Nations, members of Sąjūdis, scientists, or the volunteers. They are our heroes that make up our Lithuania. Please, join Portland Lithuanian community to commemorate Lithuanian History!

Program

Greeting by Consul General of the Republic of Lithuania in Los Angeles Darius Gaidys
Greeting by Honorary Consul of the Republic of Lithuania in Portland Randy Miller
Program by the children of Portland Lithuanian Heritage School “Atzalynas”
Lithuanian folk band “Biru Bar” from Indianapolis

Community Potluck

Please, bring a main dish and dessert. Coffee, tea and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. Feel free to BYO wine and beer if desired.

Donations

The existence of our community relies on your active participation and your generous donations!
