Thank you junior recruits. Laager vabalt!
As parents of these kids who were so warmly welcomed and looked after we must give a huge thanks to all the crew at Sõrve. Other Elanikud, Juhid, Admin and of course the parents and committee members who have provided so much support and organisational work. It was fun and fulfilling to participate and enjoy the adults activities and make new friends in the community.
We look forward to being at the 2013 lipuheiskamine.
Thomas and Marian Lipping and family
