Special Praha Dedication
The Knights of Columbus wore their finery to celebrate the dedication of a historical marker at St. Mary's in Praha. That's two weekends in a row the state has blessed polka communities with markers - last week in Moulton to salute Adolph Hofner, and this week in Praha to recognize the Mother Parish.
