workouts, has been minimal. I am interested not only in the American
Sokol units, but in the Catholic Sokol units that once existed in our

American Sokol. We house the Sokol karel Havlicek Borovsky, Ennis,
museum/Southern District museum and have photos and informtion on
many of the past units. In some communities there were both American
Sokol and Caltholic Sokol units. I am looking for information on
