Cleveland Chapter in conjunction with the 25th Anniversary of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society is sponsoring a tour of Rusyn sites in Cleveland.

If you are passing through BY CAR on your way to Munhall, please stop by and take a tour. If you are FLYING into the Pittsburgh airport, it is 2 hours to our first stop (perhaps stay at a hotel closer to Cleveland on Thursday night). We can help coordinate carpooling. This is a “drive yourself” tour with a presentation at each site. A map and detailed itinerary will be sent prior to the event. The tour will allow enough time to check into your hotel and attend the Friday evening concert at the C-RS Cultural Center.

Friday, May 17th from 9:30am– 1:30pm

Please meet at the St. Theodosius Church parking lot at 9:15am
