To our members and friends,

               The Youngstown Chapter will host a Vatra on September 10, 2016.  It will
be held at on the grounds of Infant Jesus of Prague Byzantine Catholic Church on
South Ave. Boardman, Ohio.

               We warmly invite all C-RS members & friends to come and spend a day with us.
We will have the best Rusyn food this side of the Atlantic and Rusyn music all day.
We are in an excellent location for all members as we are right between Chicago
and New York. Also right between Cleveland and Pittsburgh with easy access from
the Ohio turnpike.  We have many hotels within a half mile of the Vatra. So it will
make a great weekend trip and for most a one tank trip. Since we are so close to
Pittsburgh a Sunday trip to visit the Cultural center would round out a great Rusyn

               Since we are on the church grounds you can also attend liturgy at 6 PM then have
some pivo around the fire in the evening.  We will have music and singing at the fire.

               Please save the date and please come and meet our Rusyn members.
For any other information on hotels, directions, etc. please do not hesitate to
contact me at

      or 330-544-0107.
