OPEN HOUSE





THE VIP NIGHT FOR THE OPEN HOUSE WAS WONDERFUL. WE HAD 22 VIP's which included the Minister of Religion, 2 Priest from the Greek Orthodox Church, a Government Official, A Reporter, Heads of Departments of some of the Hospitals we have worked with, The Director of an Orphanage, the Director of an Aid's program, three representatives from the International Relief Development, a Representative from the Public Library, 2 Representatives from the Largest Humanitarian Organization in Ukraine, and many others that I did not know. The Branch members each set up their classrooms with displays representing their organization such as, the Young Women's Program, They Young Men's Program, Relief Society, The Priesthood, and the Institute Program for Young Adults as well as the Family History Library. They did such a wonderful job with their displays. I will post more later. We are off again to the Open House for the Public.

Your post brought back fond memories of the Open House we did in 2005. Aleksei and Juri look great and I loved seeing the Humanitarian poster that we made being used again. Keep up the good work!
