Help the BVCHS Preserve the Czech and Slovak Heritage

The membership of our club is active in preserving and celebrating the Czech/Slovak culture.  We have cultural presentations at our BVCHS meetings along with our Cultural activities and socials.  Annually you will also find our booth at Worldfest held in College Station, Texas.  We invite you to join us and bring your input!
