In our last article we mentioned that the Czech government has pledged 10 million crowns in the regeneration of the Cedar Rapids Czech Village, Iowa. Last week, Czech Ambassador Petr Kolar visited Cedar Rapids to pass on financial support from the Czech Republic in the value of $ 583,780. That moment was very important for everybody in the city, because it will help in returning the Czech village to its original condition.

The Czech and Slovak Museum will receive $405,380; Sokol $89,000; St. Wenceslas Catholic Church $44,700; and the Public Library $44,700. The museum also obtained funds from 44 U.S. states totaling about $300,000. The U.S. government so far did not contribute to the restoration of the museum and library.

 
Gail Naughton, director of the museum, believes that this important visit will encourage others to support the rebuilding of the museum. It is not yet sure whether the museum will re-open on the same site or it will be moved to another part of the town, but the wish is to keep it in the Czech Village.
