Dear Century Association Members and Friends:

Christ is Risen!  Indeed He is Risen!

The members of the Century Association Board of Trustees are pleased to announce plans for our annual festival – Hospitality a la Russe IX. The date is Sunday, May 6TH.  and the place is St. Michael’s Center in Jermyn, PA. Join us for a feast of traditional Russian foods and enjoy wonderful balalaika music by the renowned South River Balalaika Ensemble. Festivities will begin at 2:30PM.  See the full letter from the Century Association here.

Hospitality a la Russe IX will feature a wonderful selection of delicacies starting with a typical Russian table of zakushki (appetizers), including potato pancakes, pierogis, beet salad, eggplant caviar, kielbasa, Russian meatballs, marinated mushrooms, a main entree of homemade cabbage rolls, chicken Marsala, eggplant Parmesan, mashed potatoes, pasta, vegetables & dessert. 

All this will be accompanied by our popular theme basket raffle. A Bid-At-Home form is included for your convenience here. Make copies to share with friends! Select from twenty baskets with themes such as To Your Health Vodka Basket, Scratch & Win Lottery Basket, Welcome Spring Money Roses, Russian Treasures and I Want S’mores Fire Pit Basket. Our cookbook, “HANYA’S KITCHEN-The Orthodox Herald Recipe Collection” will be available for sale. Enclosed you will find a flyer for the festival, a ticket reservation form, and a sponsorship form. Please post the flyer at your church, spread the word, make your reservations, try your luck on the theme baskets and consider becoming a platinum, gold, or silver sponsor. Also enclosed is a membership application form. If you have already renewed for 2018, we sincerely thank you.
