Friendship Picnic in Celebration of the Sumner Welles Declaration!


Let’s celebrate friendship!

On 19 July, at 5 pm, we invite you to the Washington Square to celebrate the Sumner Welles Declaration with a picnic.

Let’s celebrate listening to US Naval Forces in Europe and Africa Band, which will play the best of American music, playing outdoor games, and enjoying great American-style food from food trucks!

The Welles Declaration is a statement issued in 1940 by Benjamin Sumner Welles, then-Acting Secretary of State of the United States of America (later called the Welles Declaration). In this statement, the U.S. did not recognize the occupation of the Baltic States and this declaration remains the best proof of our lasting friendship.

Invite your friends and don’t forget to bring a blanket! We’re looking forward to seeing you!

The event is organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the U.S. Embassy in Lithuania.
