Jelineks named 2008 Dozinky grand marshals

Rita and Richard Jeff Jelinek have been named the 2008 Dozinky Parade of Farm Pride Grand Marshals by the New Prague Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Jelineks owned and operated Jeff's Clothing Store in New Prague for 33 years, from 1962 to 1995. They were active in the New Prague Business and Professional Association, now known as the New Prague Chamber of Commerce. In addition, Jeff's service to the community extends far beyond the business he owned.

Jeff served on the New Prague Fire Department for 35 years. During that time, he held two state offices with the Volunteer Fireman's Benefit Association and the Minnesota State Fireman's Association. Since the age of 18, Jeff has been a member of the New Prague Council Knights of Columbus. He served as financial secretary for many years and is a member of the Third Degree and Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus.

Many members of the community may also recognize Jeff from being on the sidelines of New Prague High School Football games. For more than 25 years he was a member of the Chain Gang. He also served as a member and officer of the New Prague Golf Club Board.

Rita and Jeff have been married for 55 years. They have two children; Jeffrey (Michelle) Jelinek and Mary (Michael) Ekblad. They also have three grandchildren, Sadie and Max Jelinek and Mikaela Ekblad.

The Dozinky Parade of Farm Pride will take place at noon on Saturday, Sept. 20, on Main Street in New Prague.
