Q&A with Kathy Jurichko, Entertainment Coordinator and Social Media Marketing
As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected?
This is a one day festival. This is our fifth year. We have a large amount of competent and experienced volunteers divided into categories of their expertise: food prep, entertainment, games, ticket sales/accounting, facility and grounds, etc. We have indoor space available in the event of too much rain or cold.
What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?
Don't make us choose just one. We are proud of our ethnic food offerings: perohi (which is stuffed pasta dumplings with potato/cheese filling) and holubki (which is a cabbage roll). These are made by experienced volunteers in our church kitchen. We are also proud of our entertainment offerings. We have one indoor stage that is coffee-shop style with individual performers. And we have an outdoor stage that will present Russian folk music, Polish polka, old-time American folk music, and Slovak Dance groups. We are also proud of our cathedral choir and they will sing a concert in our cathedral, which will be open all day for tours.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
We are excited to welcome guests from our community to enjoy a day of food, entertainment, and fun.
