Hello /Dobry Den
We have completed a very successful 6 months of functions at Sokol. Last month Michael Krejci took up a vacant position in the committee, until the next AGM in November. Welcome and a big thank you Michael, for accepting this position and for taking on the editorship of Kvart.
Another expression of gratitude goes to all involved in these first Saturday of the month activities. Committee members that have played a major role are Marcella,Vlasta, Katerina, Honza and Michael K. Appreciation goes to Zusanna, Romana, Renata, Eric, Judith P, Vintage Blue, Boris, Sharyn and all the others that helped to make all the evenings entertaining. The third Trivia evening was an evening that tested everyone’s knowledge of both the Czech Republic and Slovakia . A great effort Katerina!! The winners will prepare questions for next year.

All the functions are fundraisers to help keep and maintain the Sokol Building. The property needs at least $60 a day to pay all the amenities to keep it open, on top of this we need money for improvements to our aging building. It is a great effort that a small community has managed to keep it going for such a long time. THANK YOU and ACKNOWLEDGMENT to everyone for supporting the Czech and Slovak National House. The hall rental, bar sales, Kvart advertisements, donations, membership fees, grants and functions all help to keep the door open.
Membership fees were due in July 2016. Thank you to all that have sent them in. Please send them in if still outstanding by cheque or direct deposit to the Sokol bank account and please add you name and send address and copy of bank receipt to the club so that a receipt can be sent back. The fees are $20 pensioner $30 adult $50 family with small children.
