KSS Expands Its Work and Support. Cooking with Basil
The St. Basil KSS has expanded its impact and work for the support of the parish. The KSS Sv. Jelena added new events that educate and raise funds. The kolo's evening event called Cooking with Basil is hosted a few times per year. These programs have featured how to make vegan delights, hand-stretching pita dough, rolled torte, baklava, Lenten dishes, appetizers and various desserts. These events begin with wine, cheeses and visiting. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted. The kolo has raised $750 to $1000 at each event.
The scrip program is a great fundraising tools. It enables parishioners to raise funds by just ordering gift cards. Families can use scrip (gift cards) to pay for gas, groceries, restaurants, home improvement, clothing, entertainment and gift giving. The parishioner buys the gift card for the amount needed and a percentage of the gift card purchase comes back to the church. Please contact Dawn Pakaski or one of the board members to purchase a scrips gift card.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink . . .” - Matthew 25: 35. Please bring in non-perishable food items to the St. Basil church donation bin near the candle stand. The food is then delivered to nearby food shelters in the community. Please let’s help feed our brothers and sisters in need.

The Kolo efforts have resulted in improved attendance and increased monetary support for our Church School and Church. The kolo supports the Church School by hosting various events, paying for the annual teen leadership training in September, and in many other ways. Our kolo also provides all the palms and willows and supports with the flowers for the decorating of the church for Great Friday and Pascha.
Where would any church be without the support of a strong Kolo? St. Basil is fortunate to have that kind of Kolo. Their creativity and generosity in supporting the church and providing the support for educational programming of our parish children. Thank you sisters for your love and all you do.
