The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village has entered a very exciting period – it is nearing its completion. In 2003 there were only thirty fully restored and operating buildings on the site. As a result of the initiative of the Friends’ Society, the Village added an additional twenty buildings – twelve are reaching their completion. On Victoria Day of 2015, five of these buildings were opened to the public (Morecambe School, the South River Teacher’s Shack, Grekul Barn, Grekul Granary and the Luzan Post Office). In 2017 an additional five buildings will be opened. FOUVS committeed $120,000 for the completion of these buildings.
Also please consider making a donation to the Friends’ Society. We rely heavily on your financial support to operate and over the next few years, we need to increase our contribution to UCHV to $300,000 to provide sufficient funds to complete the site.
