Carpatho-Rusyn Day

A celebration was held at Cleveland City Hall for the worldwide Carpatho-Rusyn Day. Until recently, Carpatho-Rusyn peoples were not considered a distinct ethnicity. The geographic area of this culture include parts of Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Urkraine and Poland. Ohio State Senator Michael Skindell, who is of Carpatho-Rusyn ancestry, was the event’s keynote speaker.
