2018 Yolka

The Yolka is a Russian or Slavic custom.  My initial introduction to a Yolka [Ёлка] was at "my cathedral" where we had the Yolka with a program, but it was done by adults.  Every time I think about the word "Yolka," which means "fir tree", I think about the play at the cathedral and the 1983 photographs of Pat Shaw of blessed memory, Susan Fedak, Dr. Ann, Andrea Lutov, and Marie Yanowsky, also of blessed memory.   It was much later that I realized that Marie was Betty's mother. 

Like last year, our children presented a fantastic program.  We were also treated to some dancing by our young dance group.
