Trip session - Trebic
12 members of our club took part in a trip to Trebic, to make acquiantance of another UNESCO sightseeing monument in Czech Republic. A local guide Mr. Ridky got us closer with history of the town, especially with the St. Procopious basilique and jewish town. We will remember long time the nice stay in a beautiful small hotel with the name Joseph 1699, as well as other pleasant points of the town and common walking there.
We used the holiday time, when we don´t meet in our club room, to visit a member of our SI club Jana Orlikova in her lovely garden house. She prepared for us her traditional culinary goodies and we brought "moisture" to common pleasant talk about things both past and recent. There was a decoration not only artwork angel on the wall but also a guest sitting bellow him - our glassmaster Jaromir.

We enjoyed our annual meeting in a new place - the wine bar of the Olšanka hotel. The new place, the new club leadership. Elen Šťastná passed over the presidency of the club, as well as the beautiful symbolic presidential chain, to her succesor Jana Benešová. Jana was still full of fresh impressions of her trip to Italy where she met SI members of a club in Sardinia. It looks like
we will have another friendly contact in sunny Italy.
Czech-Slovak clubs Meeting
6th - 8th October 2017
SI club Brno excellently prepared the meeting in which many members of all five clubs -Brno, Praha, Bratislava, Žilina, Košice - took part. The symbolic place "onhalf of the way" - the beautiful town Kroměříž with UNESCO sights added to pleasant mood. We started by wine tasting in archbishop´s cellars. Next day we did not miss an opportunity to see interiors of the chateau - the summer palace of Olomouc archbishops. After the lunch most of us took a small train ride into Castle and Flower gardens. During last dinner in brewery we exchanged our experiences.
We appreciate the meeting and will remember it. On behalf of Prague club Eva Krchová and Jana Matějková

Our traditional meeting with public once a year we arranged this time with an auction of several art pieces of artists Vladimír Suchánek, Karel Jílek, Dana Kyndrová and Ivan Gruber. We appreciated very much presence of Mr. Vladimír Suchánek among us. The popular singer Tomáš Klus with his musicians added great appeal to our meeting. The event was held in premises of Czech cultural center in Prague with presence of reprezentatives of ACORUS. Our club is in contact with them, not only to support them financially. Also this time we will pass them the profit of the auction.
We were very pleased to welcome many our guests, furthermore new ones -
members of ROTARY club in Třebíč.
Pre-Christmas period is the time of meeting people and we afforded COMMON DINNER in a pleasant Leser Town restaurant Pivo and Basilico with a tradition to exchange gifts each to another by tombola.
Another unusual meeting was held in Prague JEWISH TOWN HALL. We were invited there by PhD. Zuzana Peterová, who brought us with her interesting talking into another world, next to which we live actually all the time. We were struck with wonder by her wide range of activities and also by her ability to explain Jewish traditions.
At the conclusion we could see the interior of High synagogue, where a regular Prague visitor hardly can enter.
And at last tradition CHRISTMAS MEETING was held in our partner institution ACORUS, where members of our club brought plenty of gifts - not only for mothers who have found temporary home there, but primarily for their children. We rejoy with them pleasure of gifts, prepared with love and hope, that their further life will turn over to good.
