Ukrainian Canadian Congress in BC is organizing an International Vyshyvanka (Embroidered Shirt) Day. We would like to invite you to join us in our celebration to enjoy traditional Ukrainian folk music, Ukrainian cuisine and many more fun activities.
This day is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to wear a “vyshyvanka” (embroidered shirt) to show their pride in our culture and heritage.
Where: Community Hall at Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, 154 East 10th Ave, Vancouver.
Do you have some time between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm a few Saturdays a month to help out in our library?
We are still hoping that someone with a command of Ukrainian and English languages, a working knowledge of computer programs and a willingness to volunteer a few hours a week will come forward to help in maintaining and building our library. Although there is much work, I can assure you that there is also much joy. Help in the form of stacking books and organizing archival material is always welcome and doesn’t require a working knowledge o Ukrainian Language.
For information please contact Theresa through The Ukrainian Centre at 604-274-4119 or at email@example.com
Once again, we were entertained by the Ukrainian Prairie Band playing a selection of Ukrainian music before dinner and back by popular demand, the S-Bahn played a variety of music that we danced to until the wee hours of the night.
All those present, thoroughly enjoyed a lively 20 minute program performed by Tropak Ukrainian Dance Ensemble and by Dovbush Ukrainian Dancers of Vancouver).
