Oseredok Happenings
It seems to have been a very long time since we last met! Hopak in the Park in Melbourne was a great success and some of our CYMivtsi from Canberra-Queanbeyan were able to go along and enjoy the weekend. We also held our gathering at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve on the Anzac Day public holiday and d.Andrij should have photos and information about our Oseredok happenings up on our CYMNet site in the near future for you all to see.
The Parish's Spilne Sviatchyne was a roaring success last weekend with the hall at YKO Lyneham packed to the rafters with many parishioners and their families. The choir sang in church that morning and the children of our parish had the opportunity to participate in the Easter games, or hailky, run by O.Andrij and the nuns from Sydney.

CYM World Congress, Palatine (Chicago), Il., May 2011
CYM's World Congress has recently finished. From all accounts, it was an amazing gathering. We had a number of delegates attend from Australia - Sydney, Melbourne, and Geelong Oseredky were represented. We were able to share our new draft CYM curriculum with our druzi and podryhy from the rest of the world, and an official worldwide uniform for sumenyata was approved (amongst many other decisions made).
Congratulations go to our current Holova CYM Australia, Petro Duma, who is now Holova CYM Worldwide! He will hold this position until 2016.
