I hope that you are are enjoying the long summer in Melbourne. The start of 2017 has been a very busy time at Sokol Melbourne. I hope that many of you continue to support the future events that will take place at the club for the remainder of the year. A big thank you to the Czech republic for sending the Czech actors that presented a very entertaining afternoon for the students of Czech School in Melbourne. It was a most enjoyable afternoon enjoyed by all that attended.
I wish to congratulate the new Sokol Management Team for their enthusiasm and teamwork ensuring that Sokol survives for the future generations of Czech and Slovak heritage. The founders of Sokol Melbourne Inc. made it a non-profit organization that is governed by the rules of Consumer Affairs Victoria. There are strict guidelines and rules advising these types of clubs the manner in which they need to be organized and to be run successfully. The new committee is very aware of all these conditions and the manner that the club needs to operate.
Sadly I need to inform you that after the 28th of March 2017 the Tuesday lunches will no longer be done by Mrs. Vera Zlaty and her helpers Trevor and Diane (Geelong), Michael Ruzicka and daughter Vera. She has found it hard to keep doing the lunches since the death of her husband Eduard.
Honza Sedlak offered to take over the senior lunches at the last committee meeting. All the details have not yet been finalized. The details will be finalized the next committee meeting on the 23rd March. Please look at Sokol Melb Facebook and the sokol website to learn about the changes that will take place.
