Long Island Network
With the support of the FRUA Hudson Valley chapter president, the FRUA-NYS sub-group on Long Island was formed. We have held bi-monthly adult meetings since November 2005 in Malverne, NY (Nassau County). We meet for three hours and share invaluable information, experiences, support, emotions and a few good laughs. We recently conducted an adoption book/movie exchange. Many events have taken place in the last couple of years including an annual beach party. Ideas in the works are "Russian Day" for adults and kids, covering a little of everything and Russian cooking class.
Contact our new Vice President, Nella Yelenovic for info on the next event!
