The New Russia Cultural Center will hold a public gathering an "Immortal Regiment". The event starts at 10:30am by the exit of Washington Park at the crossroads of South Lake Street and Hudson Ave.  The Immortal Regiment is an international public event on Victory Day, during which the participants march on the streets and carry banners with the photographic portraits of their relatives who fought against fascism in World War II.

We shall gather together to commemorate the victory over Nazi Germany in the Second World War, in which many of our great-grandparents, grandparents, and other relatives participated, and in which some of them gave their lives, along with millions of others who made the ultimate sacrifice. At the gathering share your treasured photos of your relatives from World War II and tell stories about them. 

The program includes: 

Observation of the Victory Day (May 9 1945) - congratulations to local veterans, patriotic songs singing, Soviet Classical World War II film screening.  Refreshment will be served.
