This year’s annual tea party is a Czech Tea! Come to this annual event to eat traditional Czech food, drink hearty amounts of tea, and learn about Czechs in Iowa from our guest speaker Marybeth Slonneger.
Sandra Hudson will share her personal journey of growing up in a Czech community where English was the second language…and explain why that changed dramatically around the time she was in 6th grade.
Vocalist Wayne Neuzil, who has sung in 34 operatic roles and has gained recognition for singing the national anthem for major league baseball clubs, including the New York Yankees and the Cubs, will sing two songs that have been translated into Czech.
