Board Members of the Bukovina Society of the Americas

The Bukovina Society board of directors met recently to plan for the 1990 meetings. The festival in July was deemed a great success. The program over four days featured speakers of international reputation, and ended with a German dinner and dance for over 300 people. Registrations extended to 11 other states outside Kansas, and several European countries.

The next annual festival will be July 12-14, 1990 with programs and speakers confirmed again of international interest. The Society, based in Ellis, Kansas, voted to conduct the second annual event locally with a plan to move to locations around the United States and Canada in future years to areas of Bukovina heritage.
