April - August
The Croatian Heritage Museum is pleased to announce the exhibit, "Croatians
in Sports". The exhibit pays tribute to Croatians around the world for their
sports achievements. There are such sports giants as the Kostelics, Sukor,
Ivanisevic, Kukoc, Cosic, Petrovic, as well as American-Croatian sports
heroes; Roger Maris, Mickey Lolich, George Mikan, Fritzie Zivic and many
more. The idea for the exhibit came from the research and record keeping of
Mr. Steve Nekich, of Cleveland. Steve has gathered sports statistics of
Croatians around the world and verified their Croatian roots. This is the
first time that we are aware of that any organization has created a Croatian
sports exhibit. The response has been fantastic with several people offering
info that they had in their procession about Croatian sports figures. We
welcome such donations and encourage others to do the same.

The Museum is located in the American-Croatian Lodge, Cardinal Stepinac,
34900 Lakeshore Blvd, near the intersection of Rte. 91 and Lakeshore Blvd,
Eastlake, Ohio. The Museum is open Friday evenings from 7 PM to 10 PM and
most Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Also special arrangements can be made
for group tours.

And while you are at the Lodge you can plan to enjoy a Croatian meal at
Dubrovnik Garden Restaurant located in the Lodge. For more information
please contact Robert Jerin at
