The Slovak Day picnic in Montreal took place in St. Lazare on Sunday, July 12, which was organized by Branch 2 of the Canadian Slovak League. Despite the hot summer day, participation by CSL members and their friends had exceeded one hundred. After all, in the pleasant shade under the trees and at poolside, picnic guests did not feel the heat. A good dinner and music by John Chlumsky contributed to a festive atmosphere.
Among the honored guests were the Ambassador of the Slovak Republic in Kanada, Andrej Droba and the President of CSL, Mary Ann Doucette and her husband Edy.
The picnic was a succesful event. It was organized by the leadership of the CSL Branch 2 and the devoted volunteers.
We hope that we will meet again at the picnic next summer.
