One of the highlights of the trip for me was a visit to the Mayor's office in Kučín. It's a very simple looking building on the outside.
Unfortunately, the Mayor was out of town that day, but we got to see his office. Ginny, Andy and I were each asked to write something on our own page to have inserted into the visitor's book accompanied by our photographs.
I wrote the following:
"I am so happy to finally visit the town of my grandfather Jan Alzo who went to America in 1910. I Kucin I am home."
I signed my name, listed my hometown and the date.
It was a special honor for me to have this official welcome in my grandfather's village.
