– Compilation of publications and other materials
– Preservation of the cultural heritage of family Liit whose roots in Hiiumaa go back to the year 1712
Three times elected head of Suuremõisa municipality Gustav Liit (our grandfather) was all of his life organist in Pühalepa church, conducted the local choir and ensemble, repaired the instruments of village people, made himself a violin and a harmonium. He studied to play the organ under the guidance of the composer Rudolf Tobias’s father.
