It’s time for the Old New Year and your chance to say good-bye to 2019 again! What an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and make some new ones at this festive gathering.
In the lovely ballroom of the Clintonville Women’s Club you can enjoy dinner with complimentary wine and an assortment of fabulous Ukrainian tortes for dessert.
For fun, we’ll have a silent auction and raffle.
The evening’s musical program will feature the wonderful Rakowsky sisters, who will present a program of Ukrainian Christmas carols. And Mykola Halchenko and his female ensemble, coming to us from Cincinnati, will entertain with folk and contemporary Ukrainian songs. And everyone is encouraged to join in!
