Memories of Latvia’s centennial from my friend, Sandy Wilkolak, in Ohio. She’s very active in the Latvian community, which is one of the largest in the USA.
“Today is Latvian Independence Day…Here are a couple of memories of our 100th Year Anniversary celebration in 2018 in Cleveland.
It was a most memorable evening. We had a live band for dancing…Our folk dancers performed..Food was prepared by a Latvian chef..I enjoyed decorating the stage and the tables which included M&M’s with Latvija 100 printed on them.. Dievs Svētī Latvīju. God Bless Latvia…
Thanks, Sandy, for letting me use your photos and words.
War and cruel fate may have scattered us all over the world, but wherever we are, we will celebrate Latvia’s Independence Day, even if we have to do it virtually.
