Russian Women’s Assoc. (Ogonyok) Adult Classes

The Russian Women’s Association provides social, recreational and educational programs to support the Russian speaking community and their families. It is a volunteer organization that brings together Russian women and their families for mutual support, friendship and engagement in social activities.

In 2020 SMCC provided a grant to the group to conduct 26 bilingual programs over 26 weeks covering exercise, art and English language classes. The program was titled “Stay Healthy at Any Age Through Zoom” and was designed to engage Russian women who were isolated during the long lock down periods of the Covid pandemic.
