EVENTS   2014

Visit from Kosice SIC

February 4th, 2014

We were visited during our February meeting by a very nice visitor - President of Soroptimist club Kosice. We could talk about many common activities, like summer camp for talented children and prepared a gathering of Czech and Slovak Soroptimist clubs in Prague in June 2014. There was enough time for a pleasant informal get-together. 


Meeting of Czech and Slovak Soroptimist Clubs

The conventional meeting of Czech and Slovak clubs took place this year in Prague. On 6.-8. June 2014 we invited our partner clubs from Brno, Bratislava, Žilina and Košice to the traditional friendly meeting to Prague. The Prague Club has prepared a program offering not only social gathering but also a cultural program, a visit of the old and the newest architecture and a common walks in Prague. In the friednly atmosphere we had exchanged our experiencie of our activietis of our clubs.


Governos meeting in Copenhagen

The Governos meeting of Europe 2014 took place in July 2014 in Copenhagen (Denmark). The Czech Republic was represented by the President of the Prague Soroptimist Club Zuzana Ilincevova. The representatives of each Union and single club acted, inter alia, on new topics - about the protection of nature and the saving food.


Out-of Prague meeting in Litomyšl

On 19th till 21st of September 2014 we organized already traditional club trip to visit UNESCO cultural monuments in Bohemia - this time to the town of Litomyšl.  The town attracted our attention by its uniqueness, beauty, history and rich cultural and social life.

All participants with well-informed local guide visited all sights on the revitalized castle hill. We admired traditional old Czech market on the main square and had a rest being already a little bit tired - in a cozy coffee house for a cup of coffee and home-made chocolate. Some of us used a free time to visit an opening of art exhibitions in local galeries. During our common festive dinner we have found time not only for entertainment but also for evaluation of our club activities. We also discussed some ideas for our future activities.

As a conclusion of our successful trip  we realized that "the best way to solve all kind of problems - is to go to Litomyšl".



Get-together with Mr. Jiří Stránský

Every year we organize a meeting of the Club with the public chatting over a glass of wine with prominent personalities of cultural and social life. With proceeds of these traditional social events we support one of our permanent projects. This year's meeting took place on Wednesday, 26. November 2014 in the Nostic' Palace in Prague and we invited a writer and screenwriter Mr. Jiří Stránský.



Advent gathering

It is nice to keep traditions and therefore we accepted invitation of a member of our club Katka Rybakova to gather in her house with nice Christmas decorations as well as by creations of the couple, both architects. We prepared excellent food, brought funny gifts for a tombola and many nice gifts which we brought later to the Acorus. We did not forget even about carols.


Christmas time in Acorus again

This year we prepared Christmas gifts for clients of asylum institution Acorus again. We brought the gifts not only for children but also  their mothers found a surprice under the Christmas three. We believe that they enjoyed it longer than only during the Christmas eve. Those of us who have been preparing the gifts will have a good feeling more because we were able to contribute something more thanks to our friends who were touched by our nice tradition.
