The park is an instituiton that promotes many cultural events and volunteers are very lucky: they can help in the organisation and...take part in them! So that’s what I do: I join every event, I take pictures and I am ready to help if needed.
The 1st of May was the case: the park, together with the library, organised an excursion along the border between Lithuania and Poland during the period 1919-1939 to remind and talk about that hard moment in the lithuanian history. The borderline was passing trough villages, dividing families and friends
Crossing the line was very difficult, but some lithuanians found a smart strategy: as Polish were very religious, they would have never doubt the good intentions of men of faith. Lithuanian traders dressed therefore as a priest and his driver! This way they could pass from Lithuania to Poland and were able to sell theri goods.
The event worked very well: a good walk in the nature, with some stops to remember the past. I enjoyed the day, the nature, taking pictures and the company. Indeed there was the park staff and also some volunteers I met at the on-arrival training. Because, yes, the Evs gives you also the chance to meet many great people!
