The Lemko Association invites all members and friends to a Thalerhof Memorial Day and picnic on Saturday, August 6, 2016 at our headquarters, 184 Old County Road, Higganum, Connecticut.
At 11:00am a panachida (prayer service for the deceased) will be held to remember not only those who lost their life and health in relation to the Thalerhof and other internment camps of WW I but also those who suffered in and around the Carpathian Mountains in both World Wars and their aftermaths.
From noon to 6 pm there will be a kermesh (picnic). “DJ Bortne”, Stefan Dutkanicz from Bortne, will once again be on hand playing Lemko music. Materials from the Lemko Association collection and several videos on Carpathian themes will be available for viewing.
The event is free. Food and soft drinks will be available for purchase, or bring something to share.
We hope to see you there!
