Capitol Visitors Center in Austin

Texas Czechs exhibition opening reception was a great success! Austin locals and Travis-Williamson county Texas Czechs came out for the Capitol Visitors Center launch on Saturday, January 16. About 200 attendees viewed the exhibition and enjoyed accordion music by Frances Barton and Czech food by Pavla Van Bibber (and a few items by Dawn and Lori). Czechs and non-Czechs alike enthusiastically acknowledged that they were “happy to learn more” about the community and its heritage.

Thanks to the State Preservation Board and KJZT—Catholic Family Fraternal of Texas for providing support for this event.
