Where did all these eggs come from? An eggs-ceptional presentation by Connecticut’s eggspert, Yvonne Klancko. Yvie will discuss the history of the egg at Easter, provide some of the classic tales, and show examples of various art forms, including the pysanky, her particular “eggspertise.” For those interested in creating their own pysanky, books, dyes, instruments and all types of products will be available for purchase.

Yvie’s artistry is beyond description. Her eggs have been exhibited at museums and universities, and two eggs she created were presented to Mikhail Gorbachev in 1995 when he spoke at the opening of the University of Connecticut Dodd Center. You don’t want to miss this special presentation!

Ivan Rusenko (1890-1960)
Lemkos still call him "the teacher," and indeed he was a teacher of the people, an ideological leader, and an awakener of Lemko patriotism and self identity. He was also the "most Lemko"' of poets, who used superbly the simple Lemko language that blossomed from his pen. Rusenko fully expressed the problems of Lemko life, describing "what hurts" and "what cheers." He could warm the Lemko heart or chide it for misbehavior like a good and wise teacher. More about him here http://www.carpatho-rusyn.org/lemkos/rusenko.htm Next week we will begin a series of posts showing his drawings which Lemko Association published in our almanac a year after his death.

"Vechirky" show at the Lemko Hall in Cleveland, 1951.
During the first half of winter, married women and single girls spun flax and got together for "vechirky". During these "vechirky" single men played cards in a corner of the house, and also amused themselves by playing a game called "dupak". The elderly villagers told stories about their life adventures, and about various ghosts and evil spirits.
