Dalynn Pokorny and Victoria Night were crowned Little Sisters at the annual CHF pot-luck picnic held at the National Czech & Slovak Museum and Library on August 13, 2013. Little Sisters Dalynn and Victoria received their crowns, sashes, wrist corsage, and a gift bag. The Little Sister Iowa Program was designed to encourage young girls to become interested in and involved in their Czech heritage. Dalynn and Victoria will participate in a variety of events, festivals, dances, parades along with the CHF Prince and Princess and the Miss Czech-Slovak Iowa.
Also present at the crowning were Princess Kelsey Pokorny and out-going Miss Czech-Slovak Iowa Holly Stepanek. All royalty present modeled their kroj and introduced their parents.
We invite members of the public and the CHF to join us at the annual picnic on August 13 at 6:00 pm on the NCSML’s Naxera Terrance. We’re hoping for good weather, but in the event of rain, the picnic will move indoors. The CHF will provide a meat dish and tableware; attendees are asked to bring a dish to share.
