A brief History of the Sveti Lovro Junior Tammies
Officially formed in May of 1981, the Saint Lawrence Junior Tamburitzans have been keeping the central Pennsylvania area entertained with their vast knowledge of Tamburitza music and dance. Today, twenty-nine years later, the St. Lawrence Jr. Tammies coninue to play at standing room only crowds at their home, the Saint Lawrence Lodge 13, Steelton, PA.
A few of their most memorable performances include, the St. Lawrence Lodge picnics, the celebration of Croatian Independence Day in June, also, the Saint Lawrence Feast Day celebration in August, in which the Jr. Tammies parade down Second Street to the Tambura Mass at the church. They performed at nearly all the Croatian Fraternal Union Tamburitza Festivals since being in existence, which included performances at Walt Disney World's Epcot Center for the public, also two trips to Zagreb, Croatia in 1997 & 2004.
Any child who wants to learn, sing and play music of our beautiful homeland, ages 7 through 21, may join the Tammies. Please contact one of the Directors, a member of the Parents Organization, or any Lodge Officer and they will direct you to the proper contact. Practices and sign ups start in early September.
