Czech and Slovak Newsletter - July 2012

Dear friend,

Welcome to another issue of your newsletter. We hope winter has been treating you well. The month of August is going to be especially busy with three active Slovak and/or Czech incorporated associations holding their annual general meetings. This is a good time for all community supporters to get involved.

Slovak Social and Cultural Club “Ludovit Stur” Inc. Annual General Meeting

Date: Sunday 26. August 2012 from 3pm
Location: Slovak House, 105 Triholm Ave, Laverton VIC

From the Association’s newsletter: “Annual General Meeting of the Slovak Social and Cultural Association “Ludovit Stur” will not be held in July, as it was initially planned, but on 26th of August, at 3.00 pm instead. Reason for this change of date are due to the fact that many of the Association’s actively participating members will be on European holidays during the months of July and August and we would like to have a discussion about their contributions in their presence. We hope that you will find time to attend this meeting and give your support and contributions to your club.”
