    Veligura and her two young children from Ukraine, have recently settled in the Midcoast area. Through community outreach and events, she is bringing awareness to Midcoast Maine about Ukrainian cultural contributions to the world, amazing food, traditions dating back many hundred of years, and the reality of losing this rich cultural history through the destruction of war.

    Proceeds from this event will be shared with a reputable Refugee Relief agency working with Ukrainian families (agency vetting underway).

    For more information and to register please visit or call (207) 594-1084.
