Latvian Event Announcement

The Lac du Bonnet & District Historical Society has decided to cancel the Latvian event for June 2024.

Unfortunately the “Latvians are Coming” event proved to be too high a hill to climb as external funding and grants did not materialize to help cover some major expenses.

I would like to thank the dedicated “Latvians are Coming” Committee for all their efforts and time involved.

Going ahead:

The Latvian National Education & Cultural Foundation in Canada has generously donated $500 towards the production of a brochure “Lac du Bonnet Latvian Heritage Trail” (a driving tour through the Town, RM of Lac du Bonnet & Alexander)

We are hoping to have a small Latvian inspired gathering in September 2024 highlighting the Newcombe/ Lettonia/ Bird River/ Lee River areas. A Latvian inspired luncheon will be included.

Place: St John’s Heritage Church and Art Center in Lac du Bonnet

More details will follow once confirmed.
