“CELEBRATING LORAIN: Rich in History and Strong in Tradition”

This year in a very real way, attendees were able to demonstrate what it meant to be part of The International City as they heard more about the conditions in Ukraine from Father Dmitri Belenky of St. Mary’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church.  County Commissioner Matt Lundy and Victor Leandry of El Centro outlined for the audience the steps being taken by a coalition LC4Ukraine to prepare to welcome refugees from Ukraine to Lorain County in the coming weeks.  The meeting provided an opportunity for all to show their solidarity with the Ukrainian people who are fighting for their country, their land, and their democratic way of life.  Just as this struggle brought immigrants from Eastern Europe in the early 1920’s, so it will bring more here today.  They rely on those who have already settled in this country and who call the United States home to open their hearts, their doors and their schools to those who are seeking a new opportunity and a better life.

Thanks to everyone who attended!
