Black Ribbon Day August 23rd

August 16, 2010

On August 23rd, Black Ribbon Day, the Peace Latvian Lutheran Church on Main St. will hold a rememberance gathering from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. (correction, previousl announced as 7 p.m.). Everyone is encouraged to come and join our fellow Balts for this occasion. Shattered lives, childhoods destroyed, futures taken. Let us honour those who built anew—communities, homes and nations. Let us give thanks to those who overcame tyranny to provide freedom; To those who provided safe haven; For futures that are ours.
