Welcome to the 2019 edition of “A Ukrainian Summer” – our 23rd annual seasonal supplement. You’ll find calendars of Ukrainian festivals and Ukrainian sports events, as well as information about a variety of activities and pursuits.
We begin with something truly unique: a church conservation workshop to be held in the Lviv region of Ukraine geared to those interested in architectural conservation, historic preservation, and art and architectural history.
There are stories about the concert series of “Music at Grazhda” in the Hunter, N.Y., area, courses offered by the Harvard Ukrainian Summer Institute, and camps that accommodate diverse interests, from Plast Ukrainian Scouting activities to bandura and Ukrainian dance, offered at several venues in North America.
Also noteworthy is a report about what’s new at Soyuzivka Heritage Center in Kerhonkson, N.Y. Plus, there are stories about the goings on at the Ukrainian American Youth Association grounds in Ellenville, N.Y., the Ukrainian American Sport Center Tryzub in Horsham, Pa., and the Ukrainian Homestead in Lehighton, Pa.
The advertisements in “A Ukrainian Summer” also are informative, providing details about numerous events, workshops, courses, camps, programs and travel destinations.
Thank you to all who submitted materials for this supplement! (Mark your calendars as a reminder to send in your info in mid-April of next year in order to be part of “A Ukrainian Summer” 2020.) In the meantime, we hope you’ll enjoy your Ukrainian summer!
