In response to several requests, we started offering Latvian language classes for adults in October. It’s not too late to join! We need your interest, support and feedback to make this program happen. Contact the instructor via firstname.lastname@example.org or text Egons at 780-710-2946.
Our children’s group still meets monthly at the Laurier Heights Community Hall with crafts and games for children and their parents. The organizers work hard to come up with new ideas and activities. We encourage all parents of young children to become more involved – this is a great way to build community and have your children involved.
