    Click image for printable size.

    New York — For the first time in its history, New York City is observing Ukrainian American Heritage Days, which started on September 1st and end on the 11th. A proclamation to this effect was issued by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg in recognition of the contributions made by Ukrainian American immigrants, and as a celebration of the strides towards democracy made in Ukraine during and since the Orange Revolution. The mayoral declaration was obtained on the initiative of the Ukrainian National Women's League of America (UNWLA.org) and the Ukrainian American Coordinating Committee (UACC).

    A similar proclamation is expected to be issued by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz this Wednesday. See the Brama calendar for more information about Ukrainian American Heritage Days.


    Office of the Mayor
    CITY OF NEW YORK

    PROCLAMATION

    WHEREAS– ON AUGUST 24, 1991, UKRAINE DECLARED ITS INDEPENDENCE FROM RUSSIA. THE ENSUING YEARS HAVE BEEN A TIME OF BOTH TROUBLES AND TRIUMPHS, BUT LAST AUTUMN'S "ORANGE REVOLUTION," WHICH SAW THE ELECTION OF PRESIDENT VIKTOR YUSHCHENKO, WAS A STIRRING REMINDER THAT THE IDEALISM AND INTEGRITY THAT INSPIRED UKRAINE'S INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT REMAINS A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.
    WHEREAS– NEW YORK CITY JOINS ITS MANY UKRAINIAN RESIDENTS IN THIS IMPORTANT CELEBRATION OF SOVEREIGNTY. UKRAINIANS BEGAN ARRIVING IN NEW YORK IN THE LATE 1870S BUT IT WASN'T UNTIL THE COMPLETION IN 1905 OF ST. GEORGE'S UKRAINIAN CATHOLIC CHURCH THAT A TRUE COMMUNITY TOOK SHAPE. A STRONG WORK ETHIC AND DEVOTION TO FAMILY FUELED THE UKRAINIAN COMMUNITY'S GREAT SUCCESS HERE, AND IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE UKRAINIAN NEW YORKERS WERE DISTINGUISHING THEMSELVES IN BUSINESS, GOVERNMENT, AND THE ARTS.
    WHEREAS– THE LEGACY OF FORTITUDE AND VALOR ESTABLISHED BY THOSE WHO FOUNDED AN INDEPENDENT UKRAINE IS ALIVE AND WELL TODAY AMONG BOTH UKRAINIANS AND UKRAINIAN AMERICANS. WE TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO CELEBRATE UKRAINE'S HISTORICAL LEGACY, CONTEMPORARY VITALITY, AND PROMISING FUTURE.

    NOW THEREFORE, I, MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG, MAYOR OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK, IN RECOGNITION OF THIS IMPORTANT EVENT, DO HEREBY PROCLAIM SEPTEMBER 1-11, 2005 IN THE CITY OF NEW YORK AS

    "UKRAINIAN AMERICAN HERITAGE DAYS"

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF I HAVE HEREUNTO SET MY HAND AND CAUSED THE SEAL OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK TO BE AFFIXED. MICHAEL R. BLOOMBEBG
    MAYOR
