SOUTHBRIDGE — Ever heard of "Themeluar?"

No? You should — You live in it.

Of course, the vast majority of people don't call Southbridge that, but the Albanian community does, at least those who still speak Albanian. This fall, they're celebrating 100 years of existence as a religious community (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church) and the declaration of their homeland's independence that same year, 1912.

For more on this story, please see tomorrow's Southbridge Evening News.
