We have started a New Year and so it will be everyone's birthday again, and this should be celebrated.
I cordially invite all Petőfi Club Members - To everyone's birthday.
I, Frank Varsanyi, will cover the expenses for the party. I will take care of the food, drink, and good music. There will be no entrance fee, but I ask everyone to donate generously to the Hungarian Club, as this club is ours – yours and mine, and it is up to us to maintain it. Here we can hear the word of God in Hungarian,
and here we can meet new friends.
I ask my friends who would like to come to please pay the membership dues of $30 per person per year. The membership dues provide discounted admission to our events throughout the year. This is also a help for the Hungarian Club. I hope that all our members will come and bring their friends, and donate generously, thus ensuring the survival of our Club.
I wish everyone good health with loving friendship,

Frank Varsányi.

Sándor Petőfi:Travel notes
Performance by Zoltán Csadi
Zoltán Csadi is an actor and artistic director of the Bartók Theatre, and a KCSP scholarship recipient with the Canadian Rákóczi Foundation. The aim of the performance -- Útirajzok (Travel notes) -- is to bring Sándor Petőfi's poetry closer to a larger audience that appeals to all generations, to show the spirit of freedom and rebelliousness that characterized this young man as he sought his way and place in the world.

The 2023 membership of $25 per person can be purchased at every function, on Wednesdays, or by mail.

Please make out check to HCS, and mail it to Hungarian Christian Society 165 N. Jackson Rd., Venice, Florida 34293.

We are making a special request of our Dear Members and Guests to support Petőfi Club according to their financial means. Our club is 30 years old, major repairs are needed and, despite best efforts, the continual repairs are difficult to keep up with. Increased fixed expenses are an added burden. We realize that everyone is affected by increased food, electricity, insurance and other costs. This is even more evident for the Club, being a large building. Therefore, we are compelled to make this request. Thank you in advance for your understanding and help.
