MVSC Summer 2014 Picnic How do you say “picnic” in Lithuanian? Only “piknikas” will do, to describe the fun event held Aug. 2 in Fitchburg’s McGaw Park.
MVSC was honored and pleased to welcome Lithuania’s ambassador in the US, the Honorable Žygimantas Pavilionis, to two significant events in Madison. On Fri., May 2, Amb. Pavilionis spoke on the University of Wisconsin campus, at the Pyle Center, and Sat., May 3, at the annual MVSC banquet, held in the Madison Club.
Madison’s Lithuanian community, friends, and MVSC members gathered on Saturday, April 27th, for the annual Madison Vilnius Sister Cities banquet.
Madison Lithuanians and their non-Lithuanian guests celebrated a happy early Christmas Eve in the Lithuanian tradition, with 12 ++ delicious meatless dishes, a wonderful Lithuanian Santa – Kaledu Senelis, and kids, from babies to pre-teens, performing for their gifts. Many participants came from outside Madison, from Chicago, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Baraboo and Green Bay, – and all three “waves” of Lithuanian immigration were represented. We are blessed to have such a happy, friendly community.
Other Exciting events are coming! And MVSC Kucios not too far away.
