“TALKA” … is the Latvian word for ‘work party’

— when the day’s work is over, the farmer’s wife provides a grand meal for these friends,
-Such an occasion is described by the Latvians as a “Talka. Sometimes five or six farms will be visited before the party returns home.”

This coming April 30th we will be hosting our annual TALKA, with 30+ friends coming to help us paint, plant, repair, and open up our dear Camp Wandawega for another season.

Here are some highlights of the chain gang (we mean ‘work party’) from years past.
