On October 16th, the Carpatho-Rusyn Cultural Center came alive with an exciting array of Rusyn activities. We enjoyed live folk music by Rus'kyj Muzikanty. There were beautiful Rusyn crafts and entertaining children's activities. Local Rusyn organizations and independent vendors offered a variety of merchandise. There were educational and decorative items, books, CDs, DVDs, folk items, jewelry, clothing and more. Delicious pastries and a variety of Rusyn foods appealed to just about every taste.

Following their presentation we held our annual meeting, which was very informative and brief.
In the evening we hosted a zabava (dance party), learned Rusyn dances, and continued to enjoy good friends, good food, and good bottled water. And other things. It was a wonderful way to end the day. Thank you all for coming. And for those of you who could not attend, we hope you will join us next October.
