Join us for the chat with America House guest Janine Winn!
Here is some interesting information about Janine:
"My home is in the small village of Temple, Maine but I am here in Ukraine for two years as a volunteer with the Peace Corps, serving in a much larger village. I am living in Kosmach, in the Cosiv region of Ivano-Frankivsk oblast, and I love it there. It is similar in many ways to my home and yet, of course, very different. For more than 20 years, I was the director of a social service agency in our rural county in Maine, helping to develop services that are now used state-wide.
For the past ten-plus years I had a small business which provided painting and wallpapering services to homeowners and businesses. Other interests at home in recent years included our local Historical Society, our village planning board and strategic planning committee, a 4-H Horse Club for children, a member of the Western Maine Blacksmith Association, and writing for our regional newspaper about the activities and history of our village of Temple. In the ten years that I wrote for the paper, I have composed enough words to fill three and a half novels. I still write and still publish, so I guess it is fair to call myself a writer.
I also have a lot of experience with knitting, embroidery, and weaving (I’m an old Hippy and in the late 60s and 1970s, we embroidered everything!). I have kept may kinds of farm animals over the years and I have always had a garden. Peace Corps could not have picked a better place to put me!
I love to talk and to meet new people, so I hope you will join me for an hour at America House!"
