Open House at the Czech Embassy for EU Day on May 9, 2015 was an event to remember. There was a vintage motorcycle show, trained police dogs, and live music, delicious Czech food and the world famous Pilsner Urquell beer. A display featured the fascinating Karel Čapek, the writer who introduced the word “robot” to the languages of the world, through a reading in the kids’ corner. Also commemorated was the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII. Another table hosted by Czech Tourism showed how you could learn about the town of Pilsen – the Culture Capital of Europe 2015. Rockville police came to demonstrate how they train the amazing German Shepherd police dogs in all the duties of canine law enforcement. AFoCR set up an informative table to show all past projects and current ones including the rebuilding of the demolished SOKOL gymnasium in the Czech town of West, Texas. AFoCR Director of Communications Lillis Werder and son Sam hosted the table with photographs of monuments erected by AFoCR in DC and in Prague along with a video made of the efforts going on in West, Texas to rebuild the gymnasium after a fertilizer plant explostion two years ago. Usually between 3,000 to 4,000 visitors attend EU Day each year.
