As a supporter of the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village, and a former registrant or supporter of the Centenary Pioneer Recognition program, we ask you to post and/or pass on the following information.
Please find attached the latest issue of the “Village Voice,” a publication put forth by the Friends of the Ukrainian Village Society. This issue contains news about the latest activities and projects of the Friends of the Ukrainian Village Society and the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village. This Christmas edition also continues a series that explores open-air museums around the world to see how they compare to the Ukrainian Village. This issue visits a site in L’viv, Ukraine that is reminiscent of the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village.
