The Carpatho-Rusyn Consortium of North America, a coalition of six cultural organizations representing the Rusyn people, designated October 26 as Carpatho-Rusyn Day in the United States and Canada.

October 26 was chosen to commemorate a gathering at Independence Hall in Philadelphia in 1918, at which Carpatho-Rusyns were recognized for the first time as a distinct nationality by the members of the Mid-European Union as well as the U.S. government.

Please RSVP by Friday, October 20th to c-rs.nc@outlook.com so we can give the hotel an accurate headcount. Parking is free with ticket validation.
