Slovenska Pristava 2005

Proud to be a Slovenian day - Jun 2014
PURPOSE OF THE CLUB (from the 1st page of the club’s by-laws)
The purpose of the club is to bring together retired and older people who are members of Slovenska Pristava to:
We have monthly luncheon meetings, annual picnic on Pristava in August, koline (sausage dinner) in October, and Božičnica (Christmas dinner) for all our Pensioner members in December. We also schedule a bus trip outing for our members two or three times a year. We pray at the funeral homes whenever any of our members pass away. In the spring we organize a cleaning day to get Pristava ready for the summer picnic season. Some of our members even work year-round on Pristava doing whatever work is necessary so Pristava operates smoothly.
We, as Pensioners Club members, have to show good example to our young Slovenian generation and welcome them with open hearts and arms, so they will also want to become Pristava members and later join us as Pensioners of Slovenska Pristava. Our responsibility is to work with Slovenska Pristava board, Campers, two Slovenian churches and schools and other Slovenian organizations. Our goal should be to work in unity for the preservation of our Slovenian heritage in the greater Cleveland area. We are very fortunate to have Pristava. Let’s take care of it and pass it on to the next generation, so they too will have the opportunity to enjoy this “little piece of Slovenia” right here in America.
The Pensioners Club is an organization with a “positive attitude.”
