History

SPJST was founded July 1, 1897, in La Grange, Texas, by early Czechoslovakian pioneers as a fraternal benefit society to ensure the financial security of its members. SPJST stands for Slovanska Podporujici Jednota Statu Texas, or Slavonic Benevolent Order of the State of Texas. Local lodges sponsor a wide range of family-oriented activities and community-service projects. Family activities may include musical and dance groups, dances, picnics, games, contests, tournaments, summer camps, and youth activities. Lodge members also participate in community-service projects and food drives, contribute lodge funds, and assist hospitals, nursing homes, police, and fire departments.

SPJST Lodge 107, Floresville was organized on Sunday, April 21, 1912, and given its charter on May 19, 1912.

For more information, contact Bob Bayer at 830- 393-9073, Wendy Pruski at 210-535-4916, or Oscar Korus at 830-391-4196.
