Dorohi Plastuny i Pryjateli
A successful 2008/2009 is quickly wrapping up, and shortly our Novatstvo and Yunatstvo will be off to various litni tabory in the UK, Germany, Canada and Ukraina.
During the year our budding stanytsia has slowly grown, having only re-started some 5 years ago. We now count some 5 ptashata, 14 novatstvo, 6 Yunatstvo, 7 Starshi Plastuny, and 6 Seniory. In addition to working on their proby and vmilosty, our activities during the year included:
– prohulka to Richmond Park
– participation in Sviata Zbroji, 2.11.08
– trip to the London Museum of Stepan Bandera along with CYM
– participation in 75th anniversary of the Holodomor ceremonies in London
– bringing to London the Veflijemski Vohojn (Flame of Bethlehem)
– a successful Koliada, where 3 groups went out across London and to the Ukrainian seniors home in Chiddingfold
– attending the 35th Leshchetarskyj Tabir (Ski Camp) in Austria, organized by Plast Nimechchyna
– our upcoming Sviato Vesny, 23-25th May, at Plast UK’s oselia in North Wales, “Verkhovyna”
To help with our activities we have been blessed with new vykhovnyky taking part. Many thanks to our new regulars Anna Sellers and Andrij Burych, special guest stars Mykhajlo Kostiw, Olesia Markewych, and Adrian Kowal, our stalwart regulars Marta Muliak and Larisa (Kopach) Strickland, and soon returning from studies abroad, Olya Onuch.
Our upcoming shodyny schedule has been updated (see “Kalendar”), and we look forward to seeing and hearing from current and interested Plastuny in and around or visiting London.
