Ukrainian Village Historic Church Walking Tour – June 2012

Holy Trinity Cathedral

St. Volodymyr Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral











The Ukrainian Village Neighborhood Association is putting together a walking tour of the historic and beautiful churches in our neighborhood on June 16th, 2012.   Currently we have 5 churches lined up to participate in the event.  We plan to walk from church to church spending a little time at each with a docent who will lead a short tour.  We still need volunteers to help with the promotion of the even as well as a little help on the day of the event.   We don’t need a lot of anyone’s time, but we do need help with the following:

  • designing a flyer
  • printing the flyer
  • passing out/posting flyers
  • other ways to promote the event
  • day of event sign-up/registration ( 1-hour commitment)
  • day of event tour guides along the walk (can be part or all of walk)

There are still a few details to work out but it’s always best to get going as soon as possible.  We’ll schedule a volunteer meeting in March to really kick things off, though one of our neighbors has already done a lot of legwork talking to the individual churches in our neighborhood (Thanks George!).   Send us a note at info@uvna.org if you are interested in helping out!
