KERHONKSON, N.Y. – The ninth annual Ukrainian Cultural Festival held on July 10-12 is now behind us. By all accounts, it was a great success. But it wouldn’t have happened without the scores of people working behind the scenes and the thousands who came to enjoy the festival. Seen in the photos here are: masters of ceremonies Serhiy Fomenko and Marta Czurylowicz; the Lviv lawn, site of the evening gala held to benefit rehabilitation of Ukraine’s wounded warriors; Chef Andrey Sonevytsky with some of his staff; Soyuzivka Assistant Manager Stefko Drabyk with some of his workers; Halyna Shepko demonstrating weaving in the Ukrainian village, or “Selo,” set up near the Main House; a family appropriately dressed for the Ukrainian festival; a duo of bandurists rehearsing; Razom volunteers preparing for the salo tasting; Soyuzivka wait staff appropriately attired for the Friday evening gala; and the Ukrainian National Association’s booth with (from left) Yuriy Symczyk, Swiatoslawa and Stefan Kaczaraj, Oksana Stanko, Marika Drich and Stephan Welhasch.
