Summer greetings!

July 24, 2020

Hope everyone is healthy and enjoying summer, either close to home or a bit further out. If circumstances allow, the Society will organize an event in the fall.

In the meantime, to protect yourself and others, there is an opportunity to buy masks with Estonian colours, handcrafted by Stephanie Raudsepp of Montreal.
