In the early 1990, subsequent to existing tracks to Moravia, Czech Republic, Loraine Strnadel Rod, one of CCMH’s earliest Board Members, invited me to preview the original Czech manuscript of a book written by her cousin, Hana Juračáková. I was privileged to read the charming story, which describes the life in a small early Czech village. I urged Loraine to pursue her desire to have the book published in English and make it available to the Czech Center as well as the public. The book is written by Hana, an accomplished radio, film, and television producer from Trajanovice. Loraine is a multi-talented person herself, an avid reader, writer, artist and CCMH partner and supporter since 1996!
We would like to thank Loraine and others for publishing “Little Crumbs” which required endurance, patience, and time! It is a memorable gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, and any other day – a gift for all who celebrate loving and living!! And you don’t need to be Czech.
Chairman, Chief Executive Officer
