The company has supported particular projects including that in Lavrovo, Oryol (Oryol Oblast), Russia. Few months after the German invasion of USSR in the autumn of 1941, Saburov organized first guerrilla units in Bryansk (Bryansk Oblast), Oryol (Oryol Oblast) and Sumy (Sumy Oblast) regions occupied by the enemy. His partisan unit numbered around 1800 men and during the winter of 1941-42 effectively harassed German troops operating behind the enemy lines. On May 18, 1942 Saburov was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union as well as Order of Lenin for personal heroism and his contribution to the Soviet war effort.

Within Firstborn Laestadianism (The Firstborn Laestadianism) in Scandinavia, the most important yearly events are the Christmas services in Gällivare and the Midsummer services in Lahti, where thousands of Firstborn Laestadians gather each year from different countries. Different branches publish their newspapers and magazines. In Finland, the Bible version used by Laestadians is the Finnish Bible of 1776 (Bible translations (Finnish) ) which, unlike newer translations, is based on the Textus Receptus. American and Canadian Laestadianism uses the King James Version, based as well on the Textus Receptus. Wikipedia:Gällivare

Detroit has a variety of neighborhood types.

annual summer party, the Strawberry Festival. The Strawberry Festival began in 1946, when it was suggested by the Board of Trade. But with the impacts on this industry (relocation (Japanese Canadian Internment) of the Japanese during wartime and the devastating flood (Fraser River#Flooding) of 1948), the strawberry theme was abandoned. The town acquired the rights to the Western Canada championships of the Soap Box Derby, which were held annually in a specially built facility until 1973; the Derby has been revived in the new millennium. Mission's other major industry was logging, and the town's several mills were noted for being the world's largest suppliers of red cedar shake (shake (shingle))s and shingles. The District of Mission has operated for many years its own tree farm, covering most of its northern and northwestern mountainous forests. This tree farm served as a model for silvicultural management on a larger scale throughout British Columbia as well as provided a unique income source for the municipality. From 1967 through the 1970s the Soap Box Derby shared Dominion Day with a large Loggers Sports event, one of the largest in British Columbia and important on the North American Loggers Sports Association circuit. In the 1960s and 1970s there was a large cluster of productive mills on the waterfront in Mission, for many years world capital of red cedar shake production (the mill at Whonnock (Whonnock, British Columbia) outproduced the largest of the Mission mills, but Mission's city of mills was the largest overall producer). Nearby Eddy Match Co., between Mission and Hatzic, was the largest matchstick-making plant in the world until it closed in the 1960s; its only rival was in Hull, Quebec. Adjoining it was the Empress Foods Co. cannery, the survivor of the struggles of the berry industry in the Central Fraser Valley, and dating from the days of Mission's supremacy as strawberry capital of the valley before the 1948 Fraser River flood wiped it out. In more recent times one of these buildings was for a while converted into the province's largest marijuana (cannabis (drug)) grow-op, in a scandal involving one of the town's wealthiest families. Mission is noted as the home of a long-established professional dragstrip, Mission Raceway Park, which was moved in relatively recent times outside the dyking of the lower part of town to reduce noise in residential and commercial areas nearby. In 1972 a large tract of land in central Mission's Ferndale area, flat upland at the top of the slope above downtown, was acquired by the federal government and developed into two large penal facilities. One is a minimum (Ferndale Institution) security facility, and the other is a medium security (Mission Institution) prison. The northern part of the district, and the wilds of the Stave River basin to the north of it, are home to a few wilderness work camps for young offenders and low-risk convicts; these camps have over recent decades participated in the ongoing clearing of vast forests of flooded-out trees from the inundated areas of Stave Lake, opening the lake to water recreation and public exploration. Economy Forestry, hydroelectricity and agriculture are Mission's chief resource sectors and provide the basis for varied related retail and service activities. Over the past few years, transportation improvements have enabled the manufacturing sector to expand beyond sawmilling and food processing. Forest and wood related industries dominate the manufacturing sector, with an emphasis on redcedar (Western Redcedar) shake and shingle mills. Mission also holds the only municipal tree farm license in British Columbia. Agriculture is mostly restricted to a narrow belt along the Fraser River, and the unincorporated Dewdney-Deroche district east of Mission contains the majority of the farms in the area. There are about 96 commercial and hobby farms in the area. Dairy is the chief agricultural enterprise; other income sources include poultry, hogs, beef and vegetables. Mission's largest employer is the local school district, School District #75, and its second largest employer is the District (i.e. the municipality) itself. Transportation Mission is served by the Central Fraser Valley Transit System, connecting the District of Mission with the City of Abbotsford (Abbotsford, British Columbia). The Valley Connector bus is operated by BC Transit, the City of Abbotsford and the District of Mission. Transportation infrastructure includes Abbotsford-Mission Highway 11 (British Columbia Highway 11), and the Lougheed Highway 7 (British Columbia Highway 7). Mission is also accessible through commuter rail, the West Coast Express, which runs five trains a day, five days a week, between Vancouver and Mission City Station. Three days per week Via Rail's ''The Canadian'' provides eastbound flag stop service from Mission Harbour railway station. Mission differs from some of the other Fraser Valley Communities because of its access to the Fraser River. The Fraser near Mission is for the most part undeveloped and unspoiled which makes Mission the perfect launch point for the water based activities that happen there year round. Soft adventure jet boat eco tours run from Mission as well as some of the best salmon or sturgeon fishing expeditions in North America. The Mission Waterfront is also at the early stages of development. '''Coquitlam Central Station''' is a station on the West Coast Express commuter rail line connecting Vancouver to Mission, British Columbia, Canada. The station is located on the north side of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) tracks in Coquitlam, just west of the Lougheed Highway (British Columbia Highway 7) rail overpass, near the Coquitlam Centre shopping mall. The adjacent bus loop opened in the early 1990s, while the train station opened in 1995, when the West Coast Express began operating. 614 parking spaces are available on site. All services are operated by TransLink (TransLink (British Columbia)).

Brighton Pride carnival event, in 2007 '''Brighton Pride''' is a registered charity from Brighton and Hove in England promoting equality and diversity, and advances education to eliminate discrimination against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. It raises awareness of issues by promoting and staging a series of events including Winter Pride and the annual summer festival and making grants and or donations to other charitable and voluntary organisations. Its key objective is to develop an environment in favour of LGBT equality by providing information, advice and support. The charity decided to charge entry to Preston Park in 2011, due to safety advice from Statutory bodies.

'''Churchill Square''' is the major city-centre shopping centre, NCP and central bus station in the city of Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom. It was originally built in the then-town of Brighton during the 1960s, obscuring several streets. That original centre included high-rise office blocks, and had various shops and a supermarket with open but covered walkways between them. It was completely rebuilt as an indoor mall in 1998, involving further changes (and road closures) in the underlying street layout.
