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.

Tel: 941-365-2494

This week is the 'Players New Play Festival' where Llywelyn Jones is one
of five finalists.  The name of his play is:

'WHY CAN'T I BE YOU?'

$10 per person

A little about the author of this play -

Llywelyn, who spells his name in this unusual way, had this to share:

'I was born in London but lived in Caernarfon, North Wales for five years
where I attended an all Welsh speaking school.  My father was from
North Wales and Welsh was his first language.  Much to talk about!  I
look forward to seeing you all next week and we'll take it from there!  
Best, Llywelyn'

The Sarasota Welsh Society hope to invite Llywelyn speak to our group
about his career at one of our future gatherings.  We'll keep you
informed as to when we will arrange this.
You are Invited to join us for
TWO Events:
Get Well wishes to our President, Amy Ferrell on
