Vasario 23-29 dienomis Ričardas Lapaitis svečiuosis Kalgaryje. Ričardas yra karo  žurnalistas ir norėtų pasidalinti filmu "Begalinis Koridorius". Lietuvių kino juosta, pasakoja apie tragiško likimo Chodžaly miestelio dramą bei ją išgyvenusiųjų likimus prabėgus dviem dešimtmečiams. 9-ajame dešimtmetyje griūvant Sovietų Sąjungai jaunas turistas Ričardas Lapaitis keliauja Pietų Kaukazo kalnų takais. Likimas jį atveda į žemutinio Karabacho miestą Agdamą, kur jaunuolis tampa baisios tragedijos liudininku. Armėnų ir azerbaidžaniečių karinio konflikto metu išžudomi taikūs Kalnų Karabacho Chodžaly kaimo gyventojai. Ričardas jaučia pareigą apie karinius nusikaltimus pranešti pasauliui, tad netrukus jau Nepriklausomos Lietuvos spaudoje pasirodo pirmieji Ričardo straipsniai ir nusikaltimus liudijančios nuotraukos. Taip turistas mėgėjas tampa karo žurnalistu, jau 20 m. tiriančiu karinius konfliktus posovietiniame Kaukaze.

Lithuanian Trivia Night


Šių metų lapkričio 30 dieną vyko puikus renginys “Lithuanian Trivia Night”. Į renginį žmonės susrinko pasipuošę 90 metų mados vedini – languoti marškinėliai, blizgančios aptemptos kelmės, blizgančios suknelės, spalvoti švarkai....O šukuosenų įvairovė – pūsti ir sukti plaukai ir daug, daug plaukų lako....

Renginio vedančioji - Calgary Lithuanian Community prezidentė Jūratė Perminaitė -  vedė Trivia night: 7 suskirstytos komandos suko galvas, ieškodami atasakymų, susijusių su įžymiais filmais, aktoriais, herojais, mašinų markėmis, dainų žodžiais ir pan.

Vėliau - 90 metų Karaokė – šokiai, dainos, ir suneštinės vaišės. 

Dėkui visiems dalyvavusiems šiame renginyje, kuris buvo surengtas iš bendruomenės nario mokesčio lėšų.


A great event “Lithuanian Trivia Night” took place on November 30 this year. The event brought together people dressed in 90s fashion - checkered t-shirts, shiny stretch leggings, shiny dresses, colorful suits.... Variety of hairstyles - puffy and curly hair and lots and lots of hairspray....

The event host - Jurate Perminaite, president of the Calgary Lithuanian Community - hosted Trivia night. 7 teams turned on their thinking caps to find answers about famous movies, actors, heroes, cars’ brands, lyrics and more.

Karaoke of 90’ music, dancing, singing, and dining finished this fun evening.


Thank you to all who have enjoyed the evening which was held from our membership fees.
