'Priests in the Attic' a multilayered story

Continued from page 29 A review by Wasyl ydorenko, editor of the Ukraian publication 'Cathedral ells' stated "The Consistory f the UOCC was not always oused in the utilitarian buildng where it fi nds itself today. n the spot once stood a fashonable old manse that served s the family home of Fr. Sawhuk. And there was an attic, nd there were priests living in he attic, and there was Babka n the kitchen baking paska, nd people getting married in he chapel across the hall, and ecret rendezvous in darkned stairwells... And music, ots of music, all sorts of music the New York Metropolitan pera on the radio, jazz songs n the gramophone, Ukrainan Christmas carols, church ymns, conga dancing..." A local performance of izet's Carmen impressed ve-year-old Olanna (Elaine) awchuk and forged her desiny as a singer. The dream to ing on stage took Elaine to he Banff School of Fine Arts nd then the Royal Conserva- Continued from page 3 Alyea, a former civil servnt with the province and the urrent South Marysburgh ouncillor said the mayor ust build a strong team and ave a strong understanding f fi nancial issues. "I want to engage the trengths of each person who comes to the table, both the councillors and the staff ," she said. "Being mayor means you have to understand money and in my past work life, I have responsible or budgets up to $110 milion, both operational and apital. tory of Music in Toronto. She started singing in the supper clubs of Winnipeg, but her big break was at the Ritz Carlton Café in Montreal in a dress made from vestment brocade taken from the Consistory stores. And then it was on to the Royal York in Toronto and even New York. Unfortunately, the responsibilities of a young family and her refusal to accept the seamier side of the singing business soon forced Elaine to give up her career as a supper club entertainer. Nevertheless, Elaine's description of the music business in Canada during the 1950s and 1960s is priceless. Memoirs of such singers as Elaine (Steele) Sawchuk are rare. Her book belongs in every music library in Canada. Growing up Ukrainian in Canada during the Great Depression and World War II was diffi cult. Elaine felt out of place in both communities, not realizing that British immigrants coming to Canada after WWII felt equally at odds with Canadian society. "The toughest budgets to manage in my career have been ones where there isn't much to work with and that's actually the County budget. In business terms, think of the provincial government as our head office...most of what we do comes from legislation and that tells us what we have to deliver and the standards we are to meet for that delivery." Fox, a former Hallowell councillor pointed to team building and said the municipality must be run more effi - ciently. "My fi rst priority would be Her second marriage to CFRB radio host Alan Small proved to be just as diffi cult as the fi rst one to CTV producer Michael Steele. Not being satisfied with the life of a 1960s suburban housewife, Elaine began to pursue a career in fashion at Eaton's, Holt Renfrew and the Hudson Bay Co. Her fi rst business trip to Europe as a buyer is narrated with biting satire. Th e insights on women in the workplace during the 1960s and 1970s are unique and unusually sincere. Elaine Small's book came out last month. It is available in hardcover, softcover and electronic versions from the publisher. It is about 300 pages, illustrated with family photos and well worth the time to read. This multilayered story reveals the complex ways in which marriage, family, career, music and faith intersected in a Canadian woman's life during the 1960s -'70s to bring about life-changing decisions that still resound today. It contains personal to see a council that works together in concert with all departments in a more cohesive manner. We need to spend more time getting things done efficiently and effectively," he said. "When I am out speaking to business people or people in the community, it always comes back to one thing - there is still room for improvements in how we do business at Shire Hall. "Th e county is moving forward at a rapid pace - aff ected musings on newspaper interviews, performance promises, faith, the love of family, poetry and music, all recalled through the art of reverie - the driving force of this memoir. Says Small "I consider this book to be timely in light of the ongoing energy prevalent in the burgeoning Boomer/ Zoomer population. Their vast numbers, some 11 million in Canada alone, continue to dominate and influence today's collective conscience through their feisty attitude towards ageing. They lived through an exciting, tumultuous time, and they want to talk about it. Life Writing is the way to do that." Small is discussing the genre of Life Writing at a book reading at the Wellington Library, 261 Main Street, October 13, at 7 PM. The book is available at www.priestsintheattic. com, www.authorhouse.com or, Amazon, Books and Company: www.pictonbookstore. com, Barnes& Noble, Indigo, Chapters,and other local bookstores.
