Jaanipäev 2010

May 31, 2010

Laupäeval, 26. juun‘il Montreal Eesti Selts, koos Ottawa Eesti Seltsiga, korraldab jaanipäev Lättemäel, algusega kell 11 päeval. Lipu heiskamine kell 12:00. Tulge ja veetke ilusa päeva maal, sööme koos lõunaeinet (lunch), kohtame vanu sõpru ja teeme õhtul jaanituld. Jaanipäevale tulijate hulgas on Peeter Kopvillem, kes tuleb oma kitarriga koos laulikutega ja kelle meeldiv hääl on tuntud meile kõigile.
Lõuna on MESi poolt, aga Ottawa osalejad on palutud tuua magustoitu. Palun teatage Margus Arujale kui kavatsete jaanipäevale minna, ja tema saadab numbrid edasi Montreali Eesti Seltsile enne 19. juuni. Õhtusöök on omal viisil. Kohapeal on müügil õlu, või siis võtke ise oma joogid kaasa.

Laagriplats on avatud kõigile telkimiseks, kes soovivad jääda üleöö.


Saturday, June 26th the Montreal Estonian Society and the Ottawa Estonian Society are planning Jaanipäev festivities at Lättemäe beginning at 11:00 am. Flag raising is at 12:00 noon.
