PHRASE OF THE MONTH
Gwnewch Y Pethau Bychain
(Gwen-ooch uh Peth-eye Buch-eyen)
“Do The Little Things….” St. David
This is our St. David’s Day Grand Celebration, taking place on the actual St. David’s Day for once!
Come and enjoy Graham Tubbs’ award winning (I made that up!) “History and Demonstration of
Rugby.” Rugby is a very important part of Welsh life, and those of us in the U.S. are not always
well acquainted with it. Here is your chance to refresh your memories with all of Graham’s tricks
and enthusiasm. Included is a video of highlights from the Greatest Match Ever Played.”
Another important part of Welsh life is singing the national anthem at rugby matches and on other
special occasions. We are invited to polish our skills with John Good, who will lead us in
practice. Then we will sing along with the crowd at Cardiff Arms Park (what a backup group!)
before the Greatest Match. To help you feel confident John has created two files (attached to this
message). One gives you the words to the anthem, phonetically too; and the second is a practice
session in pronouncing.
Let’s complete the celebration with Welsh delicacies and other good food. We are ordering a
number of Cornish Pasties from the Cornish Pasty Co., some of us are baking Welsh cakes, and
there will be desserts. All contributions are welcome. Feel free to bring guests.
Saturday March 16th is the Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Faire at Hance Park Welsh
League will have a table with the other Celtic organizations. See this link for full details:http:
