School and activities interest survey

Dear Friends of the Czech and Slovak Heritage Association,

As you know, CSHA is working hard this year to expand and revive interest in our community, and especially to reach out to young parents who want their children to be familiar with their heritage, language and culture.

We want to get your input, your ideas, to help us plan a calendar of activities and events that you all will find interesting and fun. We’ve developed a short and simple questionnaire, via Survey Monkey, to find out more about the kinds of activities you and your families would be most interested in. So please click this link, take the survey, and let us know how CSHA can create a calendar of events you’d like to be a part of.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and suggestions and sharing with friends who might be interested. Please make sure to submit the survey no later than May 31st.


Easter Traditions Night

this Friday, March 23rd

Dear families and friends of the Czech and Slovak Heritage Association of Maryland,

We are always glad when you join us during the year for cultural events like Mikulášská, Annual festival, or theaters and concerts organized by CSHA. But we want to see more of you. We are happy to invite you for a series of four Family Fun Nights this spring with potluck, games, cartoons, crafts and music. All ages (kids, adults, grandparents) are welcome. Let’s celebrate our heritage together!

These events will be held on Friday nights from 6 to 8.30 PM (come later if you cannot make it right from the beginning) in the Undercroft of the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, 5200 North Charles St. Our Family Fun Nights will be held in English, so everyone can understand even if they don’t take Czech or Slovak classes and don’t speak at home in either of those languages. The goal is to bring people with Czech and Slovak roots together and share our heritage.

The first two will be:

March 2nd – Carnival Mask Making Craft Night – celebrating the tradition of Czech Masopust – register here:  Carnival Mask Making Craft Night

March 23rd – Easter Traditions Night – decorating eggs and learning about Czech and Slovak Easter Traditions – register here:  Easter Traditions Night

Please bring a simple dish (homemade or store bought) and join us.

All four events are free for members, but anyone is welcome to come. For non-members we ask you to make a small donation. Or better yet become a member or renew your membership for only $25 per family per year and support other activities organized by CSHA. Click on this membership form which explains all the other benefits CSHA membership brings you.
