Ukraine as Experienced by a Mainer
March 27, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
On Sunday, March 27, at 4:00, Janine Winn will be speaking at the First Congregational Church in Wilton at the invitation of Dr. David Smith, Pastor, about her experiences in Ukraine as a Peace Corps Volunteer, about her perceptions of Ukrainian people, and about the current war. Janine, a resident of Temple, served three years in Ukraine until the March 2020 evacuation of Volunteers due to the COVID pandemic. During that time she lived and worked in the village of Kosmach located in the Carpathian Mountains. She became a welcomed part of an extended family and was included in weddings, funerals, feasts and normal everyday life. The war in Ukraine, brought about by the Russian invasion, has had profound effects on all of her friends in the village as well as in Kyiv. Janine will share a human side of the war, some insights about the current situation and some ways in which Americans can help. All are welcome to attend. For more information, please call Dr. David Smith, First Congregational Pastor at 645-2535.
