20 th International Festival in Raleigh

Our participation in the 20th International Festival in Raleigh, NC, was quite a success.
Although this was a first time for our Association, the Cultural Exhibit was praised by
many people and attracted many visitors. Visitors were informed about Ukraine and its
history, and were able to admire many cultural exhibits: kylyms, embroidery, pysanky,
wood carvings, pictures of different regions of Ukraine, etc. During the exhibit 18 new
names were added to our membership list. Many thanks to the organizers, Exhibit
builders, booth volunteers and persons who loaned articles for the Exhibit.

The
article about the Ukrainians participation in the festival was published in SVOBODA
newspaper.
