Archive for April, 2015

Before going on summer hiatus, more than 40 members of the Estonian Society of Central Florida (Kesk Florida Eesti Selts) gathered for our annual picnic from 12:00 to 3:00 pm, on Sunday, April 26, 2015, under the reserved pavilion on the beach at beautiful Anna Maria Island. The Estonian and American flags greeted our guests. KFES grilled hotdogs, bratwurst and hamburgers. Guests brought their own beverages and delicious dishes to share, such as appetizers, salads, vegetables, and desserts. Bean toss, volleyball and other games were played and some enjoyed a refreshing swim or stroll in the water. It is our tradition to celebrate April birthdays at our annual picnic. “Nad elagu!” (Estonian “Happy Birthday!”) was sung before the scrumptious birthday cake was served. Our best happy birthday wishes were extended to Leena Aare, Jaan Kuuskvere, Maare Kuuskvere, Karl Noor, Silva Jensen, Monika Craig, and Triin Karr. Many thanks to our picnic committee: Maare Kuuskvere, Ingrid Shipotofsky, the Leena Aare family (Peeter, Hilda, Erika and Kristina), Kersti Linask, Lisa Mets, Erkki Taada, and Trine Kasemägi. We wish everyone a wonderful summer! Safe travels! We’ll see you again in October.
