What a treat! Bob Bratina, Mayor of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, honored us all with an impromptu frula (flute) performance of "Cacak" with Srpski Sinovi Orchestra. Bob and his wife Carol perform with "Balkan Strings" Orchestra in Hamilton. Tambura fans from all over the US and Canada attended Serb Fest - Florida, California, Utah, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and all throughout the Midwest region - so make plans to visit next year's event. Oh yes, and VOTE FOR BOB!
VUKOVICH, John George - Suddenly on Tuesday, June 16, 2009 in his 55th year, passed away. Born Nov 6, 1954 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Beloved husband of Sylvia for 34 years. Loving father of Melissa, Michael, and David. Will be sadly missed by his mother Margaret (his late father Dmitar â€œMikeâ€œ) Vukovich, and sisters Lynda Frazer and Diane Manojlovich. John was the Director of the Stevan Mokranjac Choir at St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church, Barton St. Hamilton.
At an early age John followed his father's footsteps and sang in the church choir. He later became the choir director for the St George Serbian Church in Niagara Falls. In 1996 he came to the Stevan Mokranjac and took the position of director. He was dedicated and commited to his choir, church and faith. The number of people who attended his funeral and the mass choir united together, was testimony to that. We all know that John is now a part of God's heavenly choir. May the all-merciful God shine
His grace upon His servant John in the sweetness of paradise. May he grant John forgiveness, salvation, rest and eternal joy in His kingdom. May his memory be eternal -
