On Thursday, June 20th, The Osvita Foundation Incorporated is sponsoring its Annual Testimonial Dinner at which time it recognizes individuals for their outstanding community service, charitable contributions and for enhancing and supporting the promotion of Ukrainian language, culture and history.
The Osvita Foundation Inc. was established in 1982 as a charitable organization and is committed to supporting excellence in education through the promotion of the English Ukrainian Bilingual Program (EUBP) and Manitoba Parents for Ukrainian Education.
At this year’s testimonial dinner the Osvita Foundation is pleased to honour Mrs. Orysia Tracz. Orysia has been an articulate and informative voice of the Winnipeg Ukrainian Community for more than 40 years. She has been a writer, commentator, lecturer and a steadfast advocate for all things Ukrainian. She has published countless articles in numerous journals and has translated at least ten books from Ukrainian into English. Orysia has been a willing consultant offering advice to various Ukrainian Ensembles and individuals across North America. Her sons attended the English Ukrainian Bilingual Program and she has been a supporter since its inception. In June Orysia will be in Australia where she has been invited by the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organizations to speak to their community in celebration of their 65th Anniversary of Ukrainian Settlement.
The Board of Directors of the Osvita Foundation invites you to join us in honouring Orysia Tracz on June 20 at Canad Inn Club Regent.
