16 March 2015


Where did the time go?  Seems like only a year or two ago that the 15 Carpatho-Rusyns shown below gathered on March 13, 2010 at the Polish Museum of America to found the Lake Michigan Chapter of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society.  Now we're preparing to celebrate our fifth anniversary on Sunday, April 26.

1st Row: Andrea Valasek, Maria Sedor and Arlene Gardiner
    2nd Row: Ivan Skala, Tom Sedor, Charlotte Pribish Conjelko (secretary),   Ken Cuprisin, Rev. Fr. John Lucas (treasurer)
3rd Row: John Sutko, Lisa Terlecki, Rev. Fr. William Conjelko, Ron Pyke, Jim Kaminski, Tim Cuprisin (president), Richard Trojanowski

Mark your calendar now so you don't miss our celebration at Aviana Banquets at
11142 S. Southwest Highway (at 111th St.) in Palos Hills, Illinois.  Aviana owner Myron Rodak is looking forward to hosting the event for and meeting his fellow Carpatho-Rusyns.
Doors will open at 1 P.M. followed by a family-style dinner of roast beef, golden fried chicken and fresh Polish sausage with sauerkraut. The menu also includes whipped potatoes, a vegetable medley and a choice of either an amaretto or dreamsicle ice cream parfait. 
Our after-dinner entertainment will be the Tatra Slovak Dancers from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  The group was highly recommended by those who have seen their performances.  They will be clad their new ethnic outfits which recently arrived from Slovakia.
