    Winter in the Carpathian Mountains

    St. Michael's Church Hall

    403 Delaware St, Jermyn, PA


    How did our Rusyn ancestors survive during the very long, very cold winter months in the Carpathian Mountains? 

    • How did they stay warm and what did they wear
    • What did they eat and how were the foods prepared?
    •  What activities kept them busy and what social activities took place?

    Bonnie Burke, C-RS Southeastern Branch Coordinator, will cover the period between Phillip’s Fast and the Feast of the Resurrection through photos and discussion.

    A complimentary breakfast buffet will be served at 9:30 AM
