The first Language Village since the onset of the pandemic took place at the Virginia Scottish Games and Festival (VSGF) and it was a great weekend. We thank VSGF for co-sponsoring the Language Village with us and look forward to next year. (Many thanks to Tim Thompson, advanced student and Board of Trustees member, for the photos.)
The Language Village crew invites you to take a peek.
It was an honor to have fiddler and singer Seán Heely lead one of our Gaelic Song sessions.

The crowds were great and appreciative. They even came in the rain to our workshops.
