Martin is offering some furniture and household items to newcomers who might need help in getting settled. Please contact him at martin@cris-se.com 


IMANTA’s transportation program for seniors through Yellow Cab is ongoing and well-used. It is made possible thanks to our casino funds. Seniors may use these vouchers for transportation to doctors’ appointments, church services, shopping or social events in the city area.

The old vouchers will not be valid after November 1, 2012, because Yellow Cab is changing their system. New vouchers will be sent to our regular users but if anyone else would like to start using this program, please call Ena at 780-468-2728.


Thanks to an initiative by Rasma in Calgary, a small bakery in that city has started baking Latvian bread, better known as saldskābmaize. The baker is from Slovakia. He is enthusiastic and the results are authentic. For now, they are baking this bread on Fridays only.

For information or to order, please contact:

Watermill Bakery  #114, 5403 Crowchild Trail NW, Calgary, Alberta

Phone (403) 450-4995   or  watermillbakery@yahoo.ca

 The baker has also shown interest in other Latvian recipes such as pīrāgi, Aleksandra kūkas andklinģeris.Does anyone have contacts with a bakery in Edmonton for something similar? Let us know!


Information about Imanta’s self-administered scholarships was posted online on October 9th.

The deadline for application is November 9, 2012.

Stay in touch with IMANTA at http://www.imanta.ca or on  Facebook.

Any comments, complaints or suggestions are always welcome.


 Our November celebration will be held on November 17th. This is one of our main events and a good opportunity to meet and visit. Last year’s celebration at the Lithuanian Hall was enjoyed by all and we will return there this year. There is an elevator at the hall.  Please reply on time if you are attending because we need to let the caterer know how many guests to expect for dinner! You can also reply by email to imantaedmonton@gmail.com
