Upcoming Event: Celebrations at the Polish Home

There are two important events tonight, November 15, at the Polish Home.

The first is a celebration of Poland’s Independence Day. This will run from 5:30pm – 6:30pm. Afterward, there will be an opening gala for the newly expanded wing of the Polish Home – Poland’s Consul General, Hon. Joanna Kozinska-Frybes, will be in attendance. This portion of the celebration will begin at 7:00pm, and wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

The Polish Home has been serving the community for over 90 years; let’s help them celebrate in style!
