In the August of 1999 the first newsletter of the WCER was printed under the title "WCER news". It was printed to announce the founding of the Congress and evince the ideas behind the organization. In the 2nd conference in Telsiai, it was decided to continue the printing of this newsletter. Through a survey, a name was chosen -"The Oaks".
Many people worship the oak, sturdy and long-lived, just as our ancient faiths. We invite you not only to read our newsletter, but to support it by submitting information and ideas. We shall also await your feedback regarding the newsletter, it's structure, appearance and content.
