Over the past several years, League members organized flea markets on multiple occasions – 20 June, 2015, 17 October, 2015, 18 June, 2016, and most recently 17 June, 2017. We sold jewelry, household items, and traditional Ukrainian decorations, as well as baked goods. We often schedule our flea markets on Neighbour Day, when the local community is out and about and we can meet the people who live by our Ukrainian Youth Centre. The locals seemed interested in our organization and were pleased to purchase items from us. Flea markets are extremely successful events for our League, helping us raise funding designated for local and Ukrainian charities, such as the Guardian Angels Ukraine project and Ukrainian-Canadian initiatives.
We are grateful to Maria Shysh, Oksana Kuzyshyn, Teresa Zalucky, Stephanie Savyn, Tetiana Chekhovych, Hanna Zavrazhyna, Larysa Faulkner and Vitana Sydor for their dedication and hard work. Special thanks to Hamed Ghaffari for helping with sales and Danylo Zalucky and John Kushnir for set up and tear down.
