Celebrating Sacred Heart’s Ukrainian Festival with Lubormyr the Historian!!!

With Lubormyr the Ukrainian Historian!

Another great Sacred Heart Ukrainian Festival this year! I enjoy the community atmosphere, the people, the music, and of course the food too!

Arts & Crafts were beautiful too! Humdinger ice cream from the one and only Humdinger on Upper Front Street too! I even learned where their name came from!

Quite an interesting conversation with Sacred Heart Church Historian Lubormyr at the Sacred Heart Ukrainian Festival! He was in the Ukraine recently as an election observer. He knew a lot about my Slovak & Czech history too and why there are relatively short and relatively tall Ukrainians back home!

So far I have not missed a beat or a weekend festival; now 5-for-5 (not that I am counting) and losing weight thank you Court Jester Athletic Club (yoga & swim)! Annunciation Greek, Festival/First Friday; St. Anthony’s Italian Feast; Owego Strawberry Festival; Binghamton’s Juneteenth Celebration; Sacred Heart Ukrainian Festival so far… this week is Julyfest in Downtown Binghamton, then St. John’s Ukrainian Days (vs. Festival), then my favorite the Slovak St. Cyril’s Parish Festival!

Needless to write… TROML Baby (an exclamation of JOY)!!!
