Members attended the Tabor American Legion meeting on October 17 to donate a check to the veterans who are going to Washington, DC. The check helps with expenses needed on their trip.

Members volunteered with the Tabor Fire Department on fire protection week October 1. We went to Tabor Elementary School and told the children about safety things to do when there is a fire. Members went to the kindergarten and first grade classes to hand out fire protection books. The remainder of the books were passed out by Tabor Elementary teachers to grades 2-5.

Members helped the Tabor Czech Heritage Club make homemade noodles on May 7, at the Beseda Hall. The noodles will be sold at Tabor Czech Days on June 15 and 16. They were made, then dried, and later packaged to be sold at the Czech Heritage Museum. This showed everyone how noodles were made from the beginning to the end, the Czech way.
