Al was one of the first 10 members of the Twin Cities Slovenians which met at the Nectary Restaurant on Industrial Blvd in Minneapolis in 2005. Al became the "Slovenian Education" teacher for our small group. He designed and explained different aspects of Slovenia- Geography, History, etc using posters he made to enhance his presentations. Al was very good in preparing topics for discussion on a monthly basis. He was extremely proud to have ancestors from Murska Sobota (Slovenian/Hungarian area of Slovenia).
