Slovak Catholic Sokol - A tradition of providing sound financial protection and benefits to our members.

Message from our Supreme President

by Michael J. Horvath

Valentine's Day 2018 was to be a day to express our love, appreciate, honor and begin our 40 days of lent, instead it turn out to be a day of tragedy. Future Valentine's Days will now remember Valentine's Day as the day that young school students and teachers lost their lives in a horrible act of violence. Let us continue to prayer daily and each Valentine's Day for all victims of violence and their families and continue to pray that this violence will stop.

On Sunday, March 4, 2018, I attended Assembly 59, Wilkes-Barre, PA, annual meeting. It was one of the several meetings Assembly 59 holds in the year but it is the most important meeting of the year. The Assembly officers went through the normal agenda items and then started a discussion on how to get more members interested in the Assembly and its meetings. The discussion led to activities and communications. The members attending the meeting were asked come to the next meeting with ideas for activities the Assembly can sponsor to increase membership participation. This brought a level of excitement and was support by those at the meeting. I believe this is a good start for the Assembly and hope other Assemblies will do the same.
