Hospodar and Hospodynia 2012
John and Cathie Chomiak
John and Cathie Chomiak are delighted to be invited and it is with humble feelings that they have accepted the position of Hospodar and Hospodynia for the 39th annual Pysanka Festival. Both John and Cathie's heritage is linked to respective grandparents whose families have had centennial celebrations. In each case the respective farms are still in the family. While Cathie's heritage is British, she has adopted John's heritage. After 47 years of marriage, the family consists of three daughters, Christine, Darlene, Karen, one son-in- law, Eddie and two grandchildren, Josh and Taylor.Both John and Cathie are graduates of advanced education and have been employed all their lives. John is the CEO of Hemisphere Engineering with a staff of 150. As well, he and Cathie operate a small grain farm, along with a herd of 130 female purebred Charolais cattle, south of Mundare. Since Cathie has retired from the health/education field, she has inherited the time consuming job of doing the paperwork in the Chomiak Charolais purebred business.
