Saint Nicholas Visit

Saint Nicholas visited children and families who greeted him with the traditional song, "O, khto, khto, Mykolaia." He talked with each child and each received a goodie bag with treats and toys. Activities included making traditional Ukrainian ornaments—cut paper, St. Nicholas cookie ornaments, and straw ornaments. Everyone could have a photo taken with St. Nicholas.
