April, 1894, Mrs. Anna Jakubik and Mrs. Marie Yurek met after attending Mass on a day that has become very important to all Members of The K.J.Z.T.
They visited with Reverend Father Francis Just to inform him of their interest in forming a mutual aid society for the Czech Catholic Women of the Parish. He gave them encouragement and when they asked him for assistance, he immediately wrote to the Union of Catholic Women of America in Chicago, Illinois to request a copy of By-laws which was received in May, 1894. The ladies began studying these By-Laws and seeking applicants for enrollment to the first mutual aid society in St. Joseph's Parish in Yoakum, Texas.
On the feast day of St. Ludmila, September 16, 1894, a group of the interested ladies met to organize the first Society. Those who attended this meeting in Yoakum were:
Reverend Father M. Vaculik helped the ladies organize the first Society of Czech Catholic Women in Texas. This society was placed under the protection and patronage of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Reverend Father Vaculik was appointed Chaplain, Anna Jakubik was elected President and Magdalena Prajer was elected Recording Secretary.
