LITHUANIA’s Independence Day February 16, 1918 was commemorated at Labdara on February 15th. This is the 101-st year since Lithuania declared its independence from Russia in 1918. Labdara’s Tado Svetainė common room was appropriately decked out in the colours of the Lithuanian flag and created a festive atmosphere. The Vice-President of the Lithuanian Community in Canada, Joana Kuras, gave the address. This was followed by a concert of Lithuanian songs performed by the Lithuanian Pensioners’ Club “DAINA” singers led by Lilly Turūtaitė from Vilnius Manor.
