In 2017 we started holding Ukrainian Easter Egg (Pysannka) classes in collaboration with the Moncton public library. Originally we planned on a having only one class on April 8. However, the public interest turned to be quiet high, so we decide on having a second class on April 9. The library provided the space and the supplies, and the Club members provided their expertise and support in teaching this ancient Ukrainian art.
On November 28, Ukraine remembers one of the darkest times in its history: the forced famine of 1932-33, Holodomor.
Four to ten million Ukrainians were starved to death by the Soviet government at that time.
Please, light up a candle together with Ukraine and the whole world!
