Labas, Mieli Skaitytojai,
 
Rekolekcijos
Aciu to both Loreta and Jane for sharing their culinary skills.  Loreta's main course, and Jane's dessert both hit delicious notes with Tev. Laurynas, who visited both our parishes for rekolekcijos.
Tevas Laurynas seems to have enjoyed his very brief stay in Montreal, and certainly all of those who met him were touched by his youth and enthusiasm.
 
Ausros Vartu Parapija
The annual parishioners' meeting was held this past Sunday.  About 50 people attended. Harry Celtorius and Daiva Jaugelis were re-elected for a second term to the parish committee.  Thank you to all who came out, and thank you to Petras and the committee members who provided delicious sandwich refreshments.

A note, in Lithuanian, from the President of the World Lithuanian Youth Congress:

Mielieji,

Daugelis iš Jūsų dar prisimenate 1990-ųjų metų Kovo 11-osios įvykius bei mūsų tėvų ir senelių drąsą, ryžtą ir užsispyrimą kovoti už šviesesnę ateitį, norą sukurti nepriklausomą Lietuvą, kurioje augtų laisvos ir drąsios ateities kartos. Juos visus jungė vienas jausmas –laisvės troškimas, o mums bei ateities kartoms tenka atsakomybė ir didžiulė garbė toliau puoselėti sunkiai atkovotą laisvę bei su meile stengtis garsinti Lietuvą kilniais darbais ir pasiekimais.

Prisiminkime lietuvijos nuopelnus ir pastangas atkreipti pasaulio dėmesį į mažos, tačiau tvirtos ir drąsios tautos laisvės troškimą. Laisvė nėra paprastas žodis, ją sunkiai atgavome, todėl nesvarbu, kur bebūtume dabar, mūsų užduotis yra puoselėti bei gerbti mums patikėtą brangiausią Lietuvos turtą – nepriklausomybę.

Būkime vieningi, supratingi ir žmogiški, stenkimės sekti mūsų tėvų keliu bei tikėkime šviesesniu rytojumi ir geresne Lietuva. Tik nuo mūsų pastangų priklausys tolimesnė šalies ateitis ir jos įvaizdis pasaulyje, todėl kiekvienam iš mūsų tenka pareiga ir garbė būti atsakingam už Lietuvos ateities kūrimą. Būkime verti šios atsakomybės, kurios simboliu tapo Kovo 11-oji. Su didžiausiu džiaugsmu, visos pasaulio lietuvių jaunimo sąjungos valdybos vardu, sveikinu su dvidešimtosiomis Lietuvos Nepriklausomybės atkūrimo metinėmis. Linkiu išlikti optimistiškiems bei toliau kilniai puoselėti lietuvybę.

Nuoširdžiai Jūsų,
Pasaulio lietuvių jaunimo sąjungos pirmininkas
Kęstas Pikūnas

What is Rezginele?

REZGINELE - THE SASH DANCE

This lyrical dance imitates how the newlyweds dance with their bridegrooms and bridesmaids, before departing for their new home. The dance expresses their hopes for a bright and happy future. During the dance, the groomsmen and bridesmaids bind the hands of the newlyweds with their sashes, symbolizing their togetherness.
(Ah, yes, the old dancing days...I liked the way the sashes wove all the dancers together, so I chose it as the name of this newsletter.  There, now you know!)

...And here's a note from our fearless leader of long-ago.  Rasa's always working on something wonderful!...
 
Salut la vieille gang!

I hope to see you all at Gintaras CD launch; I look at the pictures and I don't know if I should laugh or cry...

I'm sure most of you heard about Dainu Svente in Toronto this summer (July 2-4); some of you are singing (I guess the dance shoes don't fit anymore...). Paulius and I are co-chairing the event and we're losing all of our friends as we beg for money... Do you see me coming?

We have created an event on Facebook called 100tuku Klubas/Century Club - to become a member, you have to donate $100 - c'est pas si pire, hein? If you can help us out - please, and if you can convince others - encore mieux!

You can get more info about svente by clicking under my name; to get more info about 100tuku klubas/Century club go to my facebook account and links.

A bientot, chere gang!

Rasa
