Драги българи,

След около 3 седмици е Националният ни празник 3-ти март.За радост паметната дата е в събота,което позволява да си я празнуваме на деня.
Заповядайте да почетем празника в клуба "Подкрепа"от 13:00 часа
с традиционното хапване (potluck),раздумки и народни танци.
 
Тазгодишният 3ти март съвпада и с един от многото религиозни празници-
-Тодоровден наричан още Конски великден и е винаги в съботата след Сирни Заговезни.Ще бъде приятно, ако тези носещи имена като: Тодор,Тодора,Дора,Дорчо,Теодор,Теодора,Тотьо,Тошка,Тотка се присъединят към компанията та лично да им пожелаем разни добрини.

Никола и Фимия Лесов
