Happy 55th Anniversary to Slovenska Pristava! Fifty-five years ago our founders made a decision that would change our lives forever. They took a chance and purchased the piece of property that is today Slovenska Pristava. We are lucky to have inherited this special place and all it holds for Slovenians across Northeast Ohio and North America. Our little piece of Slovenia here in the United States continues to offer a place in which we are able to celebrate the joys of our Slovenian culture and heritage with family and friends. With a continued focus on family, the Pristava Board and membership undertook the monumental task of rebuilding one of the jewels of Pristava, our swimming pool.

With a continued focus on family, the Pristava Board and membership undertook the monumental task of rebuilding one of the jewels of Pristava, our swimming pool. Due to the priceless gift of volunteerism from our members' planning, material, and financial donations, and sweat equity, the Pristava community built a swimming facility of which we are all proud. In order to complete the pool in a timely fashion, the Board made the difficult decision to take out private and business loans. I am proud to report that because of the generous support of our members were we able to pay the loans back the final outstanding loans connected with the construction of our swimming pool. Pristava is now DEBT-FREE! This was only possible because of your donations, volunteer hours, and constant support of our work. Thank you!

Slovenska Pristava has had a good beginning to the 2016 season with a Pristavska Noč that will be remembered as one of the finest in years. Thank you to all who were able to help us celebrate 50 years of Camp Pristava at the St. Clair Slovenian National Home. Heartfelt thanks go to the planning committee for creating a night to remember and for setting a high standard for the rest of the year’s events. As you begin to make plans for the upcoming months, I hope that you will be able to make Pristava a destination for your family and friends. Please make sure to take
