Sport-Cultural-Tourist Society Farjovca was established in the year 2016 in village Vojščica on Karst and today counts around 40 members. They care about culture and sport in the village and the surrounding area. At the same time, they enable recognisability and presentation of historical and natural beauties in Vojščica and its immediate vicinity. Society was established in order to intensify the connection between the inhabitants, to socialize and organize various events. We can say that they represent important support pillar of CS Vojščica, as they are in great help when organizing various activities. They organize events of traditional and casual character.
THE NAME OF THE SOCIETY
The idea of the name of the society comes from plant Farjovca – a thorny wand or amethyst, which is characteristic for village surroundings and presents a beautiful blue – thorny plant, with which ˝youngsters˝ had fun with and because of the sharp thorns they pelt with it. And that is how it was left in deep and special memory.
THE GOAL OF THE SOCIETY
The goals and the mission of SCT Society Farjovca basically stare towards interconnectivity and socializing of the villagers or all members and nonmembers of the Society. With joint strength, the society will take care for preserving of the natural and cultural heritage of the village, organize sport, cultural, tourist and other programs, which will revive the village happening, preserve the tradition and encourage interconnectivity.
