Re: Slovaks in the US face generational divide, By Beata Balogová, Aug 16 - 22, Vol 10, No 31

For Slovaks to connect with each other we need a central website that has all the Slovak or Slovak/Czech clubs, organisations, etc, here in North America - and later all over the world. You join the website for free and, if you wish, list your contact information and professional and even personal background so that if someone wanted to email you, or call you, they could.

After some time, we could hold huge parties, activities, etc, throughout the country. That way we could become strong and sustain our language, experiences, and culture.
