Enthusiastic museum crowd greets new ambassador

An enthusiastic crowd greeted Ambassador Hynek Kmonicek on Friday at the Czech Heritage Museum in Temple. Visitors drove from Palestine, Austin and surrounding areas to meet the newly-appointed ambassador representing the Czech Republic in Washington D.C. Kmonicek was accompanied by his wife, Indira Gumarova and hosted by Honorary Czech Consul Brian Vanicek and his wife Joan. 

The two wore cowboy hats given to them by Texas Czechs at Sokol Dallas. Reporters from the Temple Daily Telegram newspaper and KWTX Channel 10 news in Waco covered the event.
