On August 19, 2007 we had our picnic to celebrate Ukraine's 16th year
independence. We also had elections of the Board of our Association.
The picnic was a great success. The weather was beautiful and we had
a record attendance with more than 100 members attending, compared
to about 60 last year.
Members had the opportunity to meet father Vasyl Petriv, the new priest
of the Sts. Volodymyr and Olha Ukrainian Catholic parish in Garner, NC.
There was lots of food, barbecue prepared by our chefs and music
provided by the accordion virtuoso, Eugene Kobiski, from Fayetteville.
John and Susan Washinsky provided Ukrainian folk items that were
raffled at the picnic. Everybody had a good time and there were
requests to repeat the event perhaps next Spring.
Let us know what you think.
