Vanadzes Christmas Lunch

The Vanadzes Christmas lunch, on the first Saturday of December went well. Christmas carols sounded on entering the hall and tables had festive decorations even with fir twigs. The Chrismas tree with lights was a reminder of the aproaching celebrations.  

Martins Birss conducted a prayer and with festive feeling we all sang Silent Night, Holy Night.   The kitchen was buzzing with staff preparing a delicious lunch for all 60 and one visitor. We ate prawn cocktail, turkey with sauce and red cabbage, carrots and fried potatoes. Followed by fruit salad with ice cream and cake with coffee or tea.

The lunch was prepared by Silvia Miglis, Koidula Nemiro, Marta Apinis, Maija Balcere and Ilze Abele.   Juris Vīksne took care of the drinks with assistance from folk dance group 'Ritenitis' dancers Markus Dragun, Karlis Ziedars, Davids Cachs and Mikelis Stepanuks. Zigrida Rumbena was presented with her award from the DV Australia Board as she was unable to be present at the Lacplesa social gathering where the awards were presented. We thank all the visitors for their support.

We were happy that all had a pleasant afternoon.
