August 2007


Month of August: Marathon in honor of Andi Szabolcs, info from Andreas Tabor: As many of you know my wife Kris and I as well as Gina Uline from my office trained for and completed the 26.2 mile Rite-Aid Cleveland Marathon. Another close friend, Elizabeth Balassy completed the 13.1 mile half marathon and I'm sure there are others out there who's names that I don't know trained for and completed other endurance events all in Andi's honor. When Andi went back into the hospital in June, I commited to do a 100 mile endurance event called the Seagull Century 100 mile Bike ride the first weekend of Oct. Details of my envolvement in this 100 mile endurance event can be found @ http://www.active.com/donate/tntnoh/TeamTabor. Since many of you donated to the Cleve. Marathon Team in Training event through me and the others for the race as well as to the Andi Szabolcs Memorial Scholarship fund I had wanted to avoid asking any of you for a $$ donation for this event. Thankfully I've had 3 corporate donations ( including a corporate donation from the leaders of my Hungarian Boy Scout Troop 14!) that helped immensely. As of today's date I am just $702.00 short of the minimum fund raising Aug. 29th qualification goal. I'm sending out this quick note looking for friends, family, clients etc. that work in or have a business that would put out a box of chocolate bars to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and help me to raise donations for my 100 mile Century Bike ride in Andi Szabolcs' memory. The chocolate bars have been donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by the Cleve. Indians so 100% of the $48.00 per box cost goes to the fundraiser. Here are the details: What: 1 box of Harry London Wahoo Chocolate Bars. Where: Your business or place of employment or??

Another close friend, Elizabeth Balassy completed the 13.1 mile half marathon and I'm sure there are others out there who's names that I don't know trained for and completed other endurance events all in Andi's honor.

Details of my envolvement in this 100 mile endurance event can be found @ http://www.active.com/donate/tntnoh/TeamTabor. Since many of you donated to the Cleve. Marathon Team in Training event through me and the others for the race as well as to the Andi Szabolcs Memorial Scholarship fund I had wanted to avoid asking any of you for a $$ donation for this event. Thankfully I've had 3 corporate donations ( including a corporate donation from the leaders of my Hungarian Boy Scout Troop 14!) that helped immensely. As of today's date I am just $702.00 short of the minimum fund raising Aug. 29th qualification goal. I'm sending out this quick note looking for friends, family, clients etc. that work in or have a business that would put out a box of chocolate bars to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and help me to raise donations for my 100 mile Century Bike ride in Andi Szabolcs' memory. The chocolate bars have been donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by the Cleve. Indians so 100% of the $48.00 per box cost goes to the fundraiser. Here are the details: What: 1 box of Harry London Wahoo Chocolate Bars. Where: Your business or place of employment or?? Who: Anyone that you know that would do this to help me raise the funds so that I can do the 100 mile bike ride in Andi's memory. How: Call me, Andy Tabor @ 216-235-5352. If the business can pre-write a check to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for the $48.00 cost they will re-coup the whole amount while still supporting a great cause.  When: ASAP Thank you all for your support and words of encouragement.

October 2007


Month of October: Marathon in honor of Andi Szabolcs, info from Andreas Tabor: As many of you know my wife Kris and I as well as Gina Uline from my office trained for and completed the 26.2 mile Rite-Aid Cleveland Marathon. Another close friend, Elizabeth Balassy completed the 13.1 mile half marathon and I'm sure there are others out there who's names that I don't know trained for and completed other endurance events all in Andi's honor. When Andi went back into the hospital in June, I commited to do a 100 mile endurance event called the Seagull Century 100 mile Bike ride the first weekend of Oct. Details of my envolvement in this 100 mile endurance event can be found @ http://www.active.com/donate/tntnoh/TeamTabor. Since many of you donated to the Cleve. Marathon Team in Training event through me and the others for the race as well as to the Andi Szabolcs Memorial Scholarship fund I had wanted to avoid asking any of you for a $$ donation for this event. Thankfully I've had 3 corporate donations ( including a corporate donation from the leaders of my Hungarian Boy Scout Troop 14!) that helped immensely. As of today's date I am just $702.00 short of the minimum fund raising Aug. 29th qualification goal. I'm sending out this quick note looking for friends, family, clients etc. that work in or have a business that would put out a box of chocolate bars to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and help me to raise donations for my 100 mile Century Bike ride in Andi Szabolcs' memory. The chocolate bars have been donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by the Cleve. Indians so 100% of the $48.00 per box cost goes to the fundraiser. Here are the details: What: 1 box of Harry London Wahoo Chocolate Bars. Where: Your business or place of employment or?? Who: Anyone that you know that would do this to help me raise the funds so that I can do the 100 mile bike ride in Andi's memory. How: Call me, Andy Tabor @ 216-235-5352. If the business can pre-write a check to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for the $48.00 cost they will re-coup the whole amount while still supporting a great cause.  When: ASAP Thank you all for your support and words of encouragement.

List of Regularly Scheduled or Ongoing Events


BARD COLLEGE SEEKS FORMER 1956 REFUGEES: If you or someone you know was involved with a very special program extended to Hungarian Refugees in December 1956 by Bard College in New York - Bard College has asked for help in contacting these students. Bard College will celebrate the more than 300 Hungarian refugee students who were at the Annandale-on Hudson campus in December 1956 by hosting an alumni reunion for these students, their families and faculty members. In conjunction with the reunion, the College will hold a 3-day international conference focusing on The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and its Impact and Contributions. In an unusual initiative, Bard College in New York became a way station for many young people fleeing Hungary who wished to enter the American university system by providing orientation to the United States for the Hungarian freedom fighters as well as English language instructions during the winter break in late December 1956, when the regular Bard students were absent. The students ranged in age from 15 to 35 and were taught by 15 Bard faculty members. FIfty years later Bard College is putting out a call to these students and inviting them to revisit this time in their lives and join the other students from 1956 at this very special reunion and conference this February. If you or someone you know was part of this group of very special students in December 1956 at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hundson, NY, they ask that you contact them at Hungary56@bard.edu or visit the website hungary56.bard.edu for more information.

Az iskola kollégiumában vagy az iskola által kiválasztott családnál lakik. Az iskola egyik pedagógusa mentorként foglalkozik a programon résztvevõ külföldi diákokkal. A diákokat a KMCsSz magyarországi képviselõje fogadj a reptéren, eljuttatja az iskolákba és kapcsolatot tart velük.
