March 17, 2006 -- (UCC-SPC inform) -- In association with the Ukrainian Canadian Congress – Saskatchewan Provincial Council (UCC-SPC), the Saskatchewan Ukrainian Historical Society (SUHS) will launch a new Saskatchewan travel guide at its genealogy conference this weekend.
“Saskatchewan’s Ukrainian Legacy: a travel guide to the cultural and historical sites in the Ukrainian bloc settlement communities” is the most comprehensive list available to date of what can be seen and done in the Ukrainian communities in the province.
Information includes a list of sites, locations, brief history and how to get there. Also featured are a collection of remarkable photographs from around Saskatchewan, maps and an index of sites.
The 52-page guide is an invitation to explore the sites and communities of one of the province’s largest ethnic settlements. It highlights the province’s numerous cities and towns, and takes the traveller on a journey off the highway into the heart of the countryside.
The launch takes place at the SUHS conference, “In Baba’s Trunk,” on Saturday, March 18, 2006 at 11:15 am in the lower level of All Saints Ukrainian Orthodox Church (2616 Louise Street) in Saskatoon.
The UCC-SPC serves the Saskatchewan Ukrainian community of almost 122,000 to maintain, develop and share its Ukrainian Canadian identity, culture and aspirations. The SUHS is a formal association of non academics researching the history of the province and the role of Ukrainian pioneers in its development.
