Ukrainian Bloor West Festival (Sept 16-18)
TUGG is participating in the Ukrainian Bloor West Festival http://www.ukrainianfestival.com/
This year again. We will have our tables in the St. Vladimir Institute tent. We are looking for volunteers to help us man our tables. The job would be as little as handing out flyers to as much as helping people find their ancestral parish in our books.
Please let me know if you can help at our table for any of the following times:
Saturday, September 17, 2011
9 am to 12 pm
12 pm to 4 pm
4 pm to 7 pm
Sunday September 18, 2011
10 am to 2 pm
2 pm to 6 pm

Ukrainian Heritage Day
On Thursday March 24th, 2011, the Ontario Legislature unanimously passed Bill-155 the Ukrainian Heritage Day Act which proclaimed September 7th of each year Ukrainian Heritage Day in the province of Ontario. Bill-155 was introduced by Gerry Martiniuk, MPP (Cambridge) and was co-sponsored by Donna Cansfield, MPP (Etobicoke Centre) and Cheri DiNovo, MPP (Parkdale-High Park).
Ukrainian Heritage Day provides a special opportunity to recognize the role that Ontario has played in successfully welcoming generations of Ukrainians seeking a better life here in Canada while celebrating the contributions of Ukrainian Canadians across many communities and walks of life to our province and our country.
