     The History of Our Organization

    The Ukrainian Heritage Club of Northern California was initiated during an informal picnic at the ranch of Andy and Olga Sudia in 1980. The picnic was advertised in the Sacramento Bee newspaper by Alex and Joanne Kachmar and a small group of enthusiasts of Ukrainian descent with the hope that other American Ukrainians in the area would respond
     Close to 50 people called in and the picnic was a big success.

    The club was formally registered as a non profit organization on June 10, 1983 by its first president Yuriy Oliynyk.
    In 1988 Alex Kachmar was elected president and held that office until 1992 when Yuriy Oliynyk was reelected and held that office until March 31, 2009. In March 31, 2009 Dr. Lubow Jowa became the president of the UHC of NC.
    The UHC of NC regularly sponsors picnics in the summer time and a traditional Malanka New Years celebration which was initiated by Dr. Alexander Naklowycz, its first vice president.

    Prior to 1991 the club commemorated January 22 as Ukrainian Independence Day by hoisting Ukrainian flag atop the California State Capitol. Since 1991, Ukrainian Independence is celebrated on August 24.

    The Club has assisted its member Bohdan Storozuk (+), a representative of Ukrainian Studies School for the state of California to advertise the Saturday School of Ukrainian Studies that numbers 240 children and 6 grade levels.

    Recent additions to the Sacramento cultural scene have been the Ukrainian Folk Dance ensembles "Sonechko" for children and "Mriya" for adults under the direction of club member Halyna Lorczak. The ensembles received their jump start with the club's assistance.

    Since 2000 Mr. & Mrs. Arabagi directed the Dance Ensemble "Sonechko" and later "Kalyna" Youth Dance Emsemble.

    The club also financed a first issue of the magazine "VIZ" for the newly arrived immigrants. This magazine has since been replaced by the magazine "Pohliad" for which the club provided initial assistance.

    Since 1989 the UHC of NC has provided the services of its members. Ola and Yuriy Oliynyk are known for their numerous lecture recitals at public schools, universities, colleges and libraries with presentations of Ukrainian music, culture and history. A traveling exhibit of Ukrainian arts and crafts accompanies these presentations.
