We started with Bingo game in January 2018 and watched a movie with the school's friends. 25 people came and there was lively activity during the Bingo game and the prizes were fine cups donated from Strandmarkshave's garagemarket in Denmark.
The movie were named "Water Ball For the Fat Cat" and gave a good picture of a young family's everyday life and conditions in Latvia where the father works in England and the mother all week must work away from home and live in Riga to earn money for house and two children. Meanwhile, grandfather and sister must take care of the two girls at home. The movie afternoon were arranged by Mirdza Trakina and Ritma Vainovska.
On the next day there was a continuation of our psychology hours with psychologist Liga Millupe who came from Jelgava. Here was about 10 people met up to the lessons and practical exercises. The course is a wish from some of the participants themselves. Jolanta Albrehta and Mirdza Trakina organized the event.
 
 
We will have board meeting on January 15, 2018 to plan the year's activities and courses.
