The Matzek clan gathered recently at Bendilly's Bar in Ellsworth to welcome their cousins -- Ada Hurych from the Czech Republic, and Vlad Jukl from New York to the family. The crowd included Matzeks, Falteiseks, Beskars, Armbrusters, Cernohous, Kirchners, Kryzers and more.

Bendilly’s Bar and Grill of Ellsworth was chosen as a gathering spot because it is owned by Wenzel Matzek Jr.’s great-great-granddaughter, Lisa Huppert Plummer.
