Housekeeper Available

For the past two years Olga Leykina has worked for us as a housekeeper. Olla works hard and efficiently, quietly going about her work. She is incredibly honest, has a gentle spirit, and is conscientious (she has never missed a day or been late). Olla speaks a little English and is very willing to take on any task that you ask of her. I recommend her without reservation. If you are interested or would like further information please contact Sandra Schlaepfer 232-1494 or call Colleen Joerchel 928-5568.

Nanny/Housekeeper Available

Sveta has worked for us for the past nine months. She is absolutely wonderful with our children and a great housekeeper,  too. Sveta enjoys taking our kids to visit local children's attractions and she actively plays with them in the park. She will truly be missed by our family. We will be leaving in mid-June and Sveta is available beginning in July. Please contact Teresa Conboy at 967-3870 or for more information.

Come join the Moscow Oratorio Society

We ask you attention for the new fall season of the Moscow Oratorio Society. It is a choir that has existed for six years under the leadership of conductor Alexander Tsaliuk, a greatly talented professional conductor. The Oratorio Society, however, is composed exclusively of amateur singers, who are brought together solely for the love of good and beautiful music. We perform concerts every year, the proceeds of which go to local charities. We are still open for new members, partially because the choir divided into two parts last spring. Rehearsals will be held on Wednesdays in the American Embassy from 7 - 9.30 p.m. We meet at 6:45 p.m. at the Embassy North Gate (M. Krasnopresnenskaya). For more information or to sign up, contact Marlena Hurley at 728-5527 after 19:00, or on weekends, or at 776-67-34 at any time. Or, by e-mail:

Excellent Energetic Cleaning Lady

Nadia has been working for us for two years. If you need a person who could in one day clean your apartment from the top to the bottom - you need Nadia - honest, reliable and hard-working woman.  She is excellent in ironing (so my husband says!), can help you to deliver/pick up cloths to dry-cleaner, check the house and water the plants during your absence. Nadia is working for us one day per week and looking for a part-time job (1-3 times per week). Nadia can be contacted  directly by telephone 8-234-153-40 (in Russian). For reference call Helen Ernst at 937-7717.
