12339RE: [Slovak-World] Slovak Roman Catholic Prayer meets Rusyn Prayer
- May 3, 2005The Slovak Club in Bradenville (Snydertown) PA has three murals, one really
nice one depicting a Slovak city with the Tatras in the background. The two
others show a local hunting scene, and Snydertown early in the 20th century.
They were painted in the 60s or early 70s, and every time I go there and ask
about them, no one seems to know anything about them. Of course the main
theme of the usual patrons of the club is NOT Slovak history, rather
drinking shots and a beer, and punch boards.

These murals tellthe story of the immigrant experience, and relate
it to the strength of Croatian Catholicism, devotion to Mary, the way the
people have struggled in time of war, and the importance of our mothers in
If anyone has been in the past to the Jankola Library in Danville,
Pennsylvania, or plans to go in the future, there is a very beautiful church
grounds and the stained glass windows depict the Tatra Mountains and other
immigrant treasure memories. I went there in the mid 1990's and am still
