Slovak Catholic Sokol - A tradition of providing sound financial protection and benefits to our members.

Message from our Supreme President

by Michael J. Horvath

Since we live in the digital age of instant information many of us saw the pictures the Supreme Physical Fitness Board posted on the Slovak Catholic Sokol Face Book page of Sokol members having a great fraternal time at the Sokol Family Fest held on July 15- 18, 2021, at the SNPJ Recreation center in Enone Valley, PA. Hats off to the Supreme Physical Fitness Board for organizing this event for the membership and for keeping everyone busy with activities during the day and evening, even during the occasional rainstorms. To all the Sokol members who attended, you made the Sokol Family Fest a success and thank you for your fraternal dedication and for participating.

Our Supreme Director of Sports and Athletics, James C. Matlon has all-ready for the Slovak Catholic Sokol 66th International Golf Tournament, August 6 – 8, 2021 at Treasure Lake Golf Resort in Dubois, PA. Brother Matlon has everything set to welcome all Sokol golfers and the other golfers from the other fraternals for an exciting and competitive tournament. May all enjoy the tournament and have great rounds of golf. The summer of 2021 is two thirds over since August is where we start winding down. The summer of 2021 has been somewhat fun since many of the Covid restrictions were eliminated but we know there are some that remain. We all were ready for more freedom and less restrictions but as we have seen we still need to be aware of the dangers that still exist. Enjoy the rest of the summer and your vacation as you prepare for autumn and the start of the new school year.

This summer we also saw what can happen if we do not take care of things and or delay paying attention to experts and what they recommend. We were all shocked to see a high-rise condo collapse in Florida that claimed 200 plus lives and changed the lives of many families. Then there are the wildfires in the west that we can see here on the east coast by the haze in the sky making the sunrises and sets bright orange, they are beautiful but come at a great cost to all of us. Let us pray for all those that lost their lives in the Condo collapse and for the families affected as they rebuild their lives.

No one can predict what the future has in store for us, but these tragic events should make us think, do we have our house in order? Do we have enough life insurance that can be passed on to our loved ones if something happens to us that they can use to help them rebuild? If this is the time to think about your future to see if you need additional life insurance coverage contact our Supreme Secretary, Scott T. Pogorelec, F.I.C. or our Director of Sales, Albert J. Suess, Jr. F.I.C. for help figuring out what you might need to provide financial security to your family.

Stay safe and healthy!
With God’s Blessings to All!
Zdar Boh!!
