Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr,
gwladgarwyr tra mâd,
Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.
Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad,
Tra mor yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O budded i'r hen iaith barhau.

Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau
Land of My Fathers
The land of my fathers, the land of my choice,
The land in which poets and minstrels rejoice;
The land whose stern warriors were true to the core,
While bleeding for freedom of yore.
Wales, Wales, favorite land of Wales!
While sea her wall, may naught befall
To mar the old language of Wales.

Marvin Whitely
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of MARVIN WHITELY, a dear
friend of the Sarasota Welsh Society. He was a cheerful, upbeat person, who enjoyed
getting around and visiting and dining out, which probably helped him reach such a
great age.  
Richard Capes, his nephew, was so very good to him and we know he especially will
miss him.  It was good to hear that Marvin was honored for his military service.  He
also had been an artist. Details of the Memorial Service will be announced when we
have all the details
May he Rest in Peace

You are guaranteed to enjoy the Annual Picnic, which is an ever
popular event.  We provide the burgers, buns and hot dogs so all we

This is a good opportunity to meet up and socialise with friends old

We have games for the young and young at heart as well as our
favourite songs from our song books.

Games include:
Croquet
Bean Bag Throw
French Boules
Polish Horshoes
Skipping Ropes
Bubbles
Colouring and Crayons for the very young

Also, if you look carefully, you may catch a glimpse of our famous,
friendly Welsh Dragon (y Ddraig Goch)
