History was made today at St. Sava Church. For the first time ever, a female Executive Board President was elected. Yvonne Orlich, whom we affectionately call Vonnie, is our new President. She is, of course, already very active and will need everyone's continued support.
Outgoing President Dennis Svilar's leadership has brought us through 6 years of struggles to pay off the mortgage, remodel the south wing into a functioning social center, build classrooms, move Serb Fest from 49th Avenue to the new church grounds, sell the 49th Avenue property, build the north kitchen, and start the new Pavilion construction project. These tasks were done through the support and physical work of many parishioners and his board members. During these difficult financial times, it is important to note that St. Sava Church has no debt. With great appreciation and gratitude, we wish Dennis good health.
