I would like, in the name of the Society of Czech Bookbinders, to thank all
of the people who have helped our bookbinder friends who have suffered brom
the recent terrible floods in our country.
The wonderful response to our appeal has again shown how good hearted and
generous the American people are!
Even though the floods are over, it will take years to recover.
Transportation is still limited; water, gas and electricity systems have
been destroyed in some areas, and many houses and buildings were destroyed
or damaged beyond repair and will have to be torn down.
This disaster has brought the Czech people together and a great deal of
assistance has come from within the country as well as from around the
From the bottom of our hearts, Jan and I and all the members of the Society
of Czech Bookbinders thank you.
Jan and Jarmila Sobota
