The Czechoslovak Moravan Club was founded in 1935 as an independent, non-profit local organization, governed solely by its membership, most of whom live in Broome County, NY, in order to assemble men and women who are interested in learning about and promoting the Czech and Slovak heritage, regardless of their religion for following purposes:
- To promote the understanding of the Czechoslovak language, culture, folklore, and customs.
- To encourage and assist members, and Czechoslovak immigrants to be informed law abiding citizens.
- To promote respect, friendship, goodwill and mutual understanding among its members and the community.
This organization does not promote or support any religious or political aims or purposes, but it respects the personal beliefs and practices of its membership in this regard.
Membership dues are $10 per year. This includes membership card, bi-monthly newsletter (Nase Noviny), as well as member rates for ethnic classes and functions being held by the club.
If you are at least 18 years of age and are interested in learning about and promoting the Czech and Slovak heritage, you are eligible for membership.
Membership is open all year. Learn how to join
