A Taste of Ukraine: Lecture and Dessert Fundraiser

The public is cordially invited to attend an evening exploring and celebrating the architecture and culture of Ukraine at Beaconsfield’s Carriage House on Monday, April 4, 2011 (Storm date April 5). Well known author, James W. Macnutt QC will present an illustrated talk describing his experiences and observations from his travels to Ukraine- a country that has some of the most distinctive, attractive and historically significant architecture in Eastern Europe. Mr. Macnutt has visited many of the former “East Bloc” countries and will comment on the similarities and differences among them in terms of their built heritage. Members of the PEI Ukrainian community, in authentic dress, will provide traditional Ukrainian and Canadian desserts and display crafts. Money raised during the evening from ticket sales, donations and a silent auction will support the Institute for Architectural Studies & Conservation’s educational endeavours. A limited number of seats are available.  Doors open at 6.30 pm. Tickets go on sale March 1 (advance $12. and $15 at the door) and will be available at Beaconsfield Historic House or from Institute members. For more information, please call  892-8187 or 368-6603. Please come, bring your friends, and enjoy what will prove to be an educational and colourful evening.
