The Calgary branch of TYC currently has 30 active members, who meet on the third Monday of each month from September to June. Our meetings are dinner meetings, where one of our members prepares the meal, while other members help the cook and assist in cleaning up. Our annual general meeting is held in January of each year. We allow one meeting each year as a volunteer appreciation night to thank our members and casino workers who have supported our efforts during the year.
Our main events that we supported over this past year were, before Easter we served up a pancake breakfast on Lazarus Saturday. In May for Mother’s Day we prepared pancakes, sausages, strawberries and whip cream, for brunch after church. In November for the Order of St. Andrew, Calgary Chapter, we provided a lunch for their Remembrance Day Celebration. Also in November we take part in the Holodomor remembrance services by laying a wreath in commemoration of this tragedy.
Our main source of fund raising comes from our participation in the Alberta Gaming Casino program, in which we are scheduled for every 18 to 24 months .From these proceeds we support the following:
- St. Vladimir’s Cultural Centre
- St. Vladimir’s Library and Archives
- St. Vladimir’s Museum
- St. Vladimir’s Sadochok program
- SUS Foundation of Canada
- St. Andrew’s College Bursary
- Toronto Orthodox Theological Academy
- Osivata Ukrainian program at St. John’s Institute
- Camp Kiev’s K Hi
- Medical Mercy
- Along with many other requests that come to us over the year.
