Claremont-Sugar River Rotary is hosting a “Stand with Ukraine” event on September 30 from 3:00pm to 6:00pm at the historical Claremont Opera House. Admission is free.
We have lined up an exciting, interactive program as follows:
3:00pm – 4:00pm – Interact with former District Governor John Siemienowicz and Sophia Sushailo, born and raised in Ukraine and now a resident of Claremont. Their presentations will include live video with a former District Governor in Poland and a Ukrainian member of Parliament.
4:00pm – 4:45pm – Preview a shortened version of the film “Back to Bucha,” and meet its producer, American film-maker Steve Richards, who travelled to Ukraine in 2022 and 2023.
4:45pm – 6:00pm – Participate in several activities, including “stuff-a-sock”, silent auction and raffle. There will also be a Ukrainian Folk Art exhibit of works by Ukrainian artists with highlights such as Petrykivka painting (UNESCO heritage), made with a traditional brush from cat’s fur. Ukrainian traditional food and non-alcoholic drinks will be served on a donation basis.
Beer and wine will be available for sale.
All donations will go directly to Ukrainians in need.
