The Czech Heritage Club has no physical boundaries. It is open to anyone who is interested
in preserving and promoting Czech culture; no matter his or her heritage or where they live.

Our organization originated in April 2002 as an outgrowth of the Czech Language and
Culture classes. Marian Topic taught these classes in the New Prague community. Since that time, the group has grown from a social club, to an organization involved in its community.

In 2007 by-laws were developed.
The Club is a 501C-3 organization (Incorporated in 2016) with members
actively promoting Czech heritage thru different events.
