Mother’s Day Celebration
Another very special event took place on Nov 4th. This time it was hosted by Victor Peppard, one of the founding members of RH, former President and by chance a birthday boy. There was the synergy of a talented performance, hearty traditional Russian food, and positive, supportive and enthusiastic guests. A very special present came from Elena Ostrovskaya who gave us a taste of songs from different eras. We were all enthralled by her phenomenal voice and expression that came from her heart. Everyone is looking for more cultural and educational events, organized by RH
This Day in History: (November 1st)
A wonderful multi-cultural Festival SPIFFS took place on October 19th, 20th and 21st with music, food, creative arts and crafts, dancers, singers and games. Volunteers representing different cultures from around the world created the atmosphere of peace, joy and unity. Thanks, RH board members Tatiana Roney￼, Anastasia Farkas, Zhanna Thomas, Natalya Halprin, Zhenya Davenport, Janna Velez and Corey Jane for all your hard work. Your Blini were unraveled and you were stunningly beautiful !!! Special thanks to Mary Stenov for sharing Russian culture with children and adults for many years
Our discussion of The Master and Margarita novel by Bulgakov turned out to be a remarkable event. Troy Peterson opened it with the songs Sympathy for the Devil in Disguise by Rolling Stones that resonated perfectly with the theme of the discussion and set the right tone to it. Zhenya Davenport led the discussion. Zhenya has been a board member of Russian Heritage for many years and also served as its secretary. She is doing a PhD in English at USF and teaches Russian, Spanish and English classes. Zhenya’s profound knowledge of the Bulgakov’s novel and Russian literature on the whole made the discussion really stimulating. So many people contributed their own thoughts and interpretations. As the guests were leaving, the most common comment was “we should do it more often “. Russian Heritage will sure do its best to continue with this tradition.
