The Auksuciai Foundation would like to place the name of your Lithuanian- American Community, Inc. Chapter on our e-mail service list to begin receiving information regarding our program to assist small farmers in Lithuania and respectfully ask your permission to do so.

Since 2001 we have been working on site in Lithuania developing a program of activities aimed at improving the economic position of small scale farmers. Our work is carried out at the Auksuciai Farm & Forest Center (a Lithuanian nonprofit organization) located in Northern Lithuania near the town of Kursenai. Here the Center operates a 157 hectare (389 acre) farm and conducts a year around program of research on new crops, improvement of existing crops and improved farming practices.
We would like to begin periodically sending news on our progress. Your Chapter could help significantly by passing this information on to your members.
Thank you in advance for your interest and cooperation.
