Reunion honors Czech origins at Emma's
River Falls Wisconsin 2815 Prairie Drive / P.O. Box 25 54022

The Matzek clan gathered recently at Emma’s Bar in downtown River Falls and Bendilly's Bar in Ellsworth to welcome their cousins -- Ada Hurych from the Czech Republic and Vlad Jukl from New York. The crowd included Matzeks, Falteiseks, Beskars, Armbrusters, Cernohous, Kirchners, Kryzers and more.

Emma’s Bar was chosen as a gathering spot because it was established by Emma Matzek and her husband, Stanley Johnson in 1934. Emma is the daughter of Theresa and Wenzel Matzek Jr. Emma’s Bar is currently under the ownership of Emma’s son, Lynn Johnson.

Look for more information on the reunion in next week's River Falls Journal.
