Columbus, Oh - Friends and family joined together in celebration of Saint Sava at St Stevan of Dechani Serbian Orthodox Church. Dr Predrag Matejic began the day's activities by presenting on the life and times of St Sava, while sharing prints from his collection at the Hillander Research Library at The Ohio State University.

Under the direction of our church school teachers Kathy Maragos, Antonia Bojanin and Fiona Medich, our children sang songs, played the piano, recited poetry and read stories in honor of St Sava.

David Kos, Zoran Grozdic, Fr. Isak Kisin and Rev. Mateja Matejic said kind words of appreciation and inspiration to all present.

Our Kumovi for today’s event were Zoran and Gordana Grozdic along with their children Bojan and Tanya. The kolac was passed on to Marko and Zora Stankovic who will be Kumovi for next years celebration.

Our special thanks to the Circle of Serbian Sister’s for their tireless work in making today special for everyone….Deborah Mamula, Lisa Popovich, Dee Grubich, Lisa Hodkinson, Vida Bowen, Melaina Grubich. Honorary mention to Tom Bowen and Sam Manula for their endless hours of help.
