Kathy Baroevich's commitment to our church comes from her heart. She has been a life - long member, a Sunday School teacher, and our choir director for many years. She has manned the cevap grill at every Serb Fest and helped at countless fish fry's. Regardless of the weather, she never misses church, stays for every Parastos, sings for every wedding and funeral Pomen Service. Her soprano voice is both beautiful and comforting. She has a rewarding career as an educator. Perhaps it's in her genes: every member of the Baroevich family has selflessly served our church. For all Kathy has done for us, it was time for us to show just how much we truly appreciate her. Saturday afternoon, many friends stopped by the south wing to show their support for her after she recently suffered a devastating fire that nearly destroyed her home and claimed the life of her dog. We wish her well as she rebuilds her home. Thank you to all the lovely ladies from Kolo for hosting and decorating, and to other organizations for their support of this event, and to everyone who baked "goodies" for the dessert table. Paul Jancarich composed and sang a song in her honor. Mismo Tamburitza Orchestra played for everyone's enjoyment. Thanks, guys!
