Tammy Lee (manager) was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and currently reside in the beautiful little town of Falkland, B.C. with her husband Brian Lee (Wood Specialist) and has three sons, Michael (Consultant & Sales), Mathew (Online Consultant) and Mitchel (Sales Manager). Located between the city of Kamloops and Vernon, their location has proved to be a real asset not having to travel far from the highway to visit their new store and less then an hour away from the larger cities.
Tammy and Brian own Majestic Log Homes Ltd. in Kamloops, B.C., she runs the Administration Dept. while Brian builds some of the most beautiful log homes in the world.
Tammy has always taken pride in her Ukrainian heritage, passing her traditions down to her sons and their friends. She spent 4 years as an Advisor in the Junior and Senior groups of The Canadian Ukrainian Youth Association in Vernon and following a short leave continues her roll as an Advisor. Following 4 years as the Treasurer for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Vernon , she became an appointed Trustee for 3 years and continues to serve on the Executive Board as again elected Treasurer for the Church. To add to her volunteer services of the U.O.C.C. she served two years as Vice-President of the Ukrainian Women's Association's local branch where she previously was elected for 3 years as branch Secretary. She also volunteered 3 years with a local Ukrainian Dance group (Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble) as Treasurer while supporting her sons dancing.
Michael, Mathew and Mitchel have all held positions on the Executive Board of their Local CYMK and have actively taken part in all the duties associated with the group. Mitchel currently is the President of their Branch. For many years the boys have served their Priest at the Ukrainian Orthodox Church as altar servers. They have all enjoyed years of Ukrainian dance performing in many local and Provincial concerts.
Every year as a family the family continues to carol together (in both English and Ukrainian) at seniors homes and for friends and family. And now even with their newest addition to their family Braiden Mykhaylo (born June 15th, 2006), son to Michael and grandson to Tammy and Brian, the family continues to pass their culture down to their newest generation. Braiden enjoyed caroling for his first time this year and brought happiness to all he visited.
Tammy and youngest son Mitchel, volunteer many hours during the Easter season teaching Pysanky to schools, nursing homes and individuals. In 2004 they taught over 500 students how to make Pysanky while sharing it's history with their community. They continue to look forward to teaching all students old and young each and every year.
