Happy New year friends!
Have you heard about the Czech “lentil “ tradition?
Traditionally lentils are eaten on New Year’s Day to bring $$$ and prosperity in upcoming year .... so eat up - dobrou chuť 🙂

Už máte "namočenou" čočku? Musíme uznat, že je to hezká tradice: na Nový rok se podává čočka, kdo si ji dá, budou se mu množit peníze. Anebo taky ne… 😉 Tradice bývají bez záruky úspěchu. Každopádně kdo si dá čočku na Nový rok a pak třeba taky jednou týdně po celý rok, neudělá chybu. Nevím, jak to bude s penězi, ale jeho tělo mu poděkuje... 😉

Mikuláš!!!!

Here is a message From Borek Lizec -

Dear friends in Chicago and in the Midwest,

I would like to personally invite you to our online interactive celebration of the Czech National Day in Canada honoring Canadians and Czech-Canadians who helped save Czechoslovakia, our modern statehood, during World War II. Even though, the program will primarily focus on Canada, the story will be to a great extent about Czech-Americans and the Midwest as well. Well, we begin the story in Chicago... I hope that you could find the documentary as well as the cultural program interesting.

I am proud to have the support of Prime Ministers Andrej Babiš and Justin Trudeau. They will both be part of our program with many other distinguished guests and Czech music stars.

I hope that you will join us on October 28 at 8 p.m. ET at www.TogetherToVictory2020.com
At this website, you can already find our trailer, historic newspaper and more information about the event.

I would look forward to toasting with you, at least from a distance, on Wednesday! ...and chatting with you live.

Many thanks and best regards,
Bořek

🧻BATHROOM FUNDRAISER 🧻 – update #2

Our reconstruction dream team has put in brand new tiles in both the bathrooms. Appliances will be installed soon! In only two weeks, Ken Dvorsky's matching challenge brought $4,620. There are only $2,730 to go! Thank you for your enduring support, everyone! 🚽♥️
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
What could be more rewarding than flushing your money down the new TGM toilets?

The COVID-19 pandemic stopped all our classes and cultural events but the Masaryk School has stayed busy! At the end of April, we have started a long overdue remodeling project. Upon their return to the school in the fall, the members of our community and our children will find fully renovated and redesigned bathrooms on the ground floor and upgraded common pine room.

Thanks to your help in the summer of 2019, we were able to put a brand new roof on the building. As with all our previous building projects, we will not be able to do it alone and would like, once again, ask you for your help and support. The estimated material and labor cost is $23,000. We have already raised $12,700. $10,000 was pledged by an anonymous donor and $2,700 will be covered by a grant from the Czech government. Will you help us to get the remaining amount of $10,300 by August 31, 2020? Your donation is tax deductible. After we receive the contribution, the TGM secretary will send you a confirmation letter for your income tax records!

There are two ways to contribute:
1) Checks with the code FLUSHING on the memo line can be sent to: T. G. Masaryk School 5701 W 22nd Place, Cicero, IL, 60804
2) Online credit card contributions can be made through PayPal at: https://www.paypal.me/MasarykCzechSchool/
In 2021, The T. G. Masaryk Czech School will celebrate its centennial and will host the 10th Annual Conference of Czech Schools in the USA and Canada, with Czech government officials and representatives present. Help us ensure we have only the best seats in the house! 🚽

American Sokol

This year due to Covid-19 we were unable to have a ceremony at our Lidice Memorial, however, our new American Sokol Honor Guard leader Teddy Polashek and member John Fron still came through. In Bro. Teddy Polashek’s words, “we can’t let this day be missed or forgotten. We put on our uniforms, ordered a wreath and we are heading out there now!” This vidéo says it all. Sokols never forget... Zdar, Zdar, Zdar!

Mothers play a special role in our lives. They've been there to show us the joy of life, guide us through the hurt of life, and lead us to our best selves. Today, with most gratitude, we say our thanks and appreciation for everything you do. Happy Mother's Day from the CCACC 💐🌻🌷

Milí přátelé krajané,

dovolujeme si Vás pozvat na sledování 6 vybraných novodobých českých filmů v rámci tradičního filmového festivalu Czech That Film online, které by byly jinak promítány v těchto dnech v kinech v USA a Kanadě, avšak z důvodu pandemie koronaviru to není možné.

Česká centra se proto rozhodla pro promítání 6 filmů online, a to každý týden jeden za malý poplatek na webové stránce www.czechthatfilm.com .

Prvním filmem ke spuštění v týdnu od pondělí 27.4.2020 budou Staříci. Dalšími filmy budou: Karel, já a ty, Klec, Na střeše, Přes prsty a Hra.

Anotace k filmům najdete na stránce http://www.czechthatfilm.com/film.html a také na stránce Generálního konzulátu ČR v Chicagu https://www.mzv.cz/chicago/cz/kultura_co_nas_ceka/filmovy_festival_czech_that_film_filmy.html

This is an incredible event for everyone including veterans, historians, students, and teachers. I highly encourage people to consider joining Friends of Bohemian National Cemetery to receive some incredible newsletters and information. I have family buried at the cemetery. My great grandfather served in the Spanish American War and is buried at the cemetery. He is honored at the Spanish American War memorial located at the cemetery. Such incredible history!!! You will not want to miss this presentation.
Hello, let me offer you my services as a genealogist. If you have your ancestors from the Czech Republic and you are interested in who they were, where and how they lived, where they worked, how many children they had and so on, I can help you. I offer professional services at prices normal in the Czech Republic. What I offer: - searching for your ancestors (records up to the 17th century are normally searchable) and assembling a brood, brood, family tree, etc. - genealogical research in the Czech Republic - genealogical counselling / consultation - Graphic editing of lineage charts - scanning family photos and documents - providing photocopies of selected archive material - Creation of family chronicles The first step before researching family history itself is, first and foremost, the need to agree on ideas about the outcomes of research, i.e. to find out your requirements. The cost of the resulting work is then determined from this. Because I want you to have full control of your finances, together with you, I will set the research funding limit. To create a family tree, it is necessary that you tell me the name, date of birth and place of birth of your oldest known ancestor who lived in the Czech Republic. These figures must be correct, as there could be confusion between the persons sought and the fact in the event of false information. An example of a pedigree and its price: Ancestor background (including graphic representation) 4 generations - 15 people - 389 US dollars (price includes tracing siblings of the main people in the family tree) 5 generations - 31 people (price includes tracing siblings of main people in family tree) - 599 US dollars 6 generations - 63 people (price includes tracing siblings of main people in family tree) - 989 US dollars You pay no advance for my services. You pay the first portion of the advance (approximately 20 percent of the final price) only after I can find at least a quarter of the required ancestry. I further undertake that there will be no increase in the price agreed in advance, unless the requirement for a pedigree is increased by the customer. The BASIC family tree includes: - a graphic family tree in electronic JPG and PDF format, - an e-book with all the found and compiled information about your ancestors well-arranged by individual families and generations, - all the found data in electronic GEDCOM format (for genealogic software). How long does it take to create a family tree? The time needed to search for your ancestors varies depending on the extent of the search. In general, the minimum time needed to create a family tree is 1 month. Do you want to know the history of your family? Contact me: email: [email protected] or facebook I look forward to working for you Miroslav Moťka
