On April 17, 2013, an explosion at the West Fertilizer Company killed 15 people, injured more than 200, and damaged or destroyed more than 150 buildings including the gymnasium and the Lone Star Hall of Sokol West. This facility has been rebuilt in memory of those lost and injured and as a symbol of the resilience of the citizens of West and of the enduring spirit of American Sokol. The new gymnasium was dedicated November 20 with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Governor Greg Abbott attended alongside Czech Ambassador Gandalovic, AFoCR, and American Sokol Organization.
