The Cleveland District held its first meeting of the new year on February 18th. In attendance were our newly elected National President Cynthia Maleski and her husband Andrzej Groch. We were very honored to have them attend. The meeting started off with prayer and a luncheon which included mini sandwich trays, fruit and bakery which were provided by the branches.
Then it was time to get down to business with the scheduling of district meetings for the year as well as scheduling of events such as Join Hands Day, St Anne’s Day, The Fest and Christmas Party for the Light of Hearts Villa residents. Also discussed was what we would like to give the residents as a gift this year. There were many other topics with extended discussions.
The members in attendance were encouraged to attend Fr. Furdek Lecture featuring former US Ambassador Vincent Obsitnik on February 27th, an event co-sponsored by FCSLA and FCSU.
The meeting concluded with Cynthia Maleski presenting the district with a small gift. District President Joyce Lechman, accepted a book titled Cleveland Slovaks by John T Sabol & Lisa A Alzo. President Maleski spoke about the importance of seizing every opportunity to help others and show our talents in the organizations where we serve members of our community.
Fr. Gonda said closing prayer. We then held our 50/50 raffle and gift raffle.
Thank you to all members that attended the meeting and gave their input.
Also, a Big Thank You from Joyce Lechman for their attendance at the lecture.
The next district meeting will be Saturday, April 21st at 12 Noon at Light of Hearts Villa.
