VISITORS FROM LVIV AT CENTRAL OFFICE

London
19.06.09




Members of Lviv-Ratusha’s Rotary Club visited AUGB’s Central Office earlier today and held a meeting with the AUGB’s CEO and were given a tour of the Shevchenko Library and Archive by Dr Ludmila Pekarska.

The group are in the UK for a Rotary Convention which will take place in Birmingham on 21-22 June.  They will then head up to Edinburgh on a sightseeing tour during which they also hope to meet up with representatives of the local Ukrainian community.

Lviv’s Rotary Club pedigree dates back to the 1930s during the inter-war period of Polish rule.  However, its activities were cut short following the signing of the Molotov-Ribentropp pact and the immediate arrival of Soviet forces into Western Ukraine in 1939.  Its charitable ethos returned to Lviv only in1990 when a ‘temporary’ Lviv branch was created (as the Soviet Union veered towards its collapse). Today’s Lviv Rotary Club community boasts over 150 members drawn from across the city’s business community, with four separate branches: RC Lviv, RC Lviv-Leopolis, RC Lviv-Centre and RC Lviv-Ratusha.  The latter club has 26 highly active members.
