Latvian Kiosk

Visit the Latvian display in the lobby.

 After World War ll, Applebachsville became the home of many DP's (displaced persons) from Latvia. They settled in the sleepy village bring with them their rich Latvian history and unique culture. We have invited our Latvian friends to join us in the lobby of the community center where they will be selling Latvian foods and beautiful Baltic amber jewelry. All sales will benefit Latvian charities.
