Twenty SSIO volunteers gathered on a rainy afternoon on 28th October 2018 to celebrate the centennial of the Czech Republic, building on over 1,500 years of national history. The Czech SSIO observed this momentous occasion with the planting of a Linden Tree, a symbol of good and righteous spirits in Czech culture. Following an inspirational speech highlighting the 1,500 years of Czech history, the Linden tree was planted with everyone lending a helping hand. SSIO members then sang devotional songs to express gratitude to their motherland.
