    Dear Brothers and Sisters, "By this we know love, that Christ laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers... Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. (1 John 3:16-18)" St. John the Apostle reminds us again and again that our love is grounded in Gods selfless love for us. Love brings us together today for our 42nd Macedonian Ball. Love for our parish inspired the dedication and hard work of the numerous people who made this years Ball a reality. Love for one another is found in the joy we see today in the eyes of those around us. Love for God made this parish a reality so many years ago. Love inspires the good work of those who are here now. And love will carry us into a bright and joyous future. Jesus says that there are two great commandments: "Love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind," and, "Love your neighbor as yourself." The second commandment is not, "Love your neighbor as you love yourself," but, "Love your neighbor as yourself." In other words, we should regard others as extensions of our very selves. Our lives are profoundly interwoven. Sometimes this is a source of struggle. But at other times, times like this evening, these connections bring us great happiness. The blessings of Gods Kingdom are experienced, not in isolation from others, but together in a communion of love. May Divine love illumine our hearts and inspire us to every good work. God bless,

    +otets (Fr. Andrew)

    My Dear Friends: Thank you for attending the 42nd Annual Macedonian Ball and supporting St. Nicholas Eastern Orthodox Church. I would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to all who have placed an ad in this program book and to those who have contributed to the silent auction. Your gracious support of this joyful celebration is instrumental to the success of the Ball. This years Ball is very special because we are celebrating several milestones in the life of our parish. In addition to commemorating our 42nd Macedonian Ball, we are also celebrating 64 years of Christian leadership and service to our community. Since 1948, we have been celebrating the Macedonian heritage of our founding fathers while embracing the benefits that are propagated through cultural diversity within the Church. Additionally, this is the 21st anniversary of Macedonian Independence. St. Nicholas has been blessed to have Father Andrew Jarmus (Otets) as our spiritual leader with his compassionate understanding and his many years of priestly experience in the Orthodox faith. To those who have never attended one of our Sunday Liturgy serves, we invite you to do so. I have found Father Andrews sermons to be the best of the best. A Father Andrew sermon can be a life changing event. As the good book says, Come See. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following persons. It is through their efforts that this great celebration of life, The 42nd Macedonian Ball, has come to fruition. Firstly, I would like to thank the Ball Committee: Dave & Millie Phillips, Shirley & Mike Panchev, Bill Skimos, Jim Skimos, Suzanne Dunn, Argie Bellio, Mike Frank, Bruce Griffey & Julie Replogle, all of whom dedicated themselves by working countless hours in the planning and coordination of this joyous event. I would like to thank Tammy Wever, our new parish secretary, whose help was indispensable. Thanks to the members of our Parish Council for their leadership and dedication to the church. Thanks to Father Andrew & Protodeacon Michael Myers who provide the guiding light of spiritual leadership to our parishioners. Thank you to all who have contributed their time and talent to the success of the ball, including the Womens Guild, Donors of time & money, Our Ad Sponsors, Our Honored Guests, including the Visiting Clergy and their Popadias, Popadia Kristi, Mayor Tom Henry & his bride Cindy, The Bill Skimos Band, The Mali Makedonci Dance Group, and the professional staff at Cerutis Catering. Thank you to all who have contributed their time and talent to the success of The 42nd Macedonian Ball. Welcome one and all! Best Wishes, Dan Replogle, Chairman The 42nd Annual Macedonian Ball St. Nicholas Orthodox Church
