Speaker Ruth Bundza Reedy will discuss the Lithuanian enclave that once flourished on Youngstown’s East Side in the vicinity of St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church.

Reedy, who grew up on the East Side, will share some of her memories and will discuss some of the Lithuanian community’s holiday traditions.
