November 2012


Ambassador's Welcome: “November marks the anniversary of the Velvet Revolution which brought about an era of freedom for the Czech people. One of the leaders of this important milestone in our nation’s history was the late president Vaclav Havel. Next year, we will celebrate the life and legacy of Havel through the Mutual Inspirations Festival 2013. I look forward to seeing you at the many events we have planned and hope that you have a very joyous holiday season.” ~ Petr Gandalovic
