How did our ancestors survive the very long, very cold winter months in the Carpathian Rus' of yesteryear? What did they eat and how were the foods prepared? How did they stay warm and what did they wear? What activities kept them busy and what social activities took place? Come to Bridgeport November 19th to learn all this and more. http://lemkoassociation.org/2017/11/november-19th-in-bridgeport-winter-in-the-carpathians/

On Sunday, October 22, 2017 the Lemko Association of the United States of America, the American Russian Citizens Club of Shelton, Connecticut, and the New England Branch of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society sponsored a lecture on Bishop Soter Ortynsky, the first Ruthenian Eastern Rite (Greek Catholic) Bishop in the USA. The presentation was made by Rev. Dr. Ivan Kaszczak, of Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church in Kerhonkson, New York. Fr. Ivan is an expert on Bishop Soter's life and has recently published a critically acclaimed biography of Bishop Soter. About 60 people came out on a beautiful Fall afternoon to hear about the aspirations and challenges of Bishop Ortynsky. Read more about it in the upcoming issue of Karpatska Rus'. [Pictured here are Rev. Dr. Ivan Kaszczak and the organizer of this event our treasurer Robert Klancko]

We would like to thank everyone for coming to our event this past Sunday to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Akcja Wisła. We thank Fr. Vladimir Horoszczak for hosting the event at his Saint Mary's Holly Assumption Orthodox church in Stamford, Conn. and for his heartfelt panachida. We also thank Piotr Kosowski, Danuta Horbal and Bogdan Horbal for the reading of 500+ names of Lemkos who were imprisoned, tortured, and starved at the Jaworzno Central Labor Camp where some of them were murdered. We were happy to have Maria Silvestri and John Righetti present to show their latest documentary film "Even Tears Were Not Enough." Finally we would like to thank all those who brought food and especially the Dutkanicz family of Shelton, Conn. for their leadership and efforts. We will see you and hopefully more Lemkos next year to do it again as "A people without a past is a people without a soul."

Thank you for coming to our Thalerhof Day and picnic. The weather overnight and into the morning was very bad but we caught a break later on. Still, our panachida could not be served outside at our Thalerhof Memorial Chapel so we moved it inside into the library. It was served by Subdeacon Robert Klancko. We thank DJ Bortne for providing music during social part of our event and to prof. Paul Best and his family for hosting and organizing the event. See you in a couple of months at the panachida for Lemko victims of Akcja Wisła and the screening of "Even Tears Were Not Enough / Аж і слезы не старчыли", a documentary by John Righetti and Maria Silvestri. Details to come soon.
