Update June 30th, 2010

The picnic ended up being great success! We had about 60 people come, with some folks coming from 4 hours away! Even the Slovak ambassador showed up. There was plenty of food, including sausages, cucumber salads, fasirka (I made a kettle’s worth), and many many kinds of cakes and cookies, including ones made by Danka that were beautifully decorated with the shield of Slovakia. Make sure to sign up for the Washington D.C. Slovak Meetup if you live in the area to find out about our future activities. See ya!
