                     "Another Successful Sunday At The Polish Club"

   We received an email and several phone calls letting us know how successful they thought our 2nd dance of the new year was on Nov 19th. One of them stated that "The Band was really pumped and they had almost everybody up and on the dance floor. Many more than the usual few stayed all the way to the end of the dance. To us it was a very successful day!!!!"

    It is always great to receive such reports  especially when we are not able to be at The Club.





     Doors will open at 1 PM. Please bring a dish of food  to The Club by 2 PM. We will have a POTLUCK dinner starting 2:15 PM. Please bring enough of your favorite entree, salad, side dish or caserole to serve 8 people. NO DESSERTS, PLEASE! The Kitchen will provide desserts. At our last Potluck Dinner we ran out of food and only had desserts for some people who turned out to be diabetic. Thank you.


     The Sounds Of The South under the leadership of  Ed Bilinski will provide the music from 3 to 6 PM. Admission is $ 6.00 for members and $ 8.00 for non members.


                                              "2017 SCHOLARSHIP AWARD"


    Your Club officers and Board of Directors are happy to announce that The 2017 SCHOLARSHIP AWARD has been awarded to Alec Kruk. Alec is the grandson of longtime members Milton & Stephanie Kruk. CONGRATULATIONS Alec, Milt and Stephanie!





    The New Soundz, under the direction of Stan Simms, will provide the music on Sun, Dec 17. This will be our Christmas celebration Sunday at The Club. As in previous years, we will sing Christmas Carols in Polish and English.




    We continue to get updates from our Members as well as our Sunshine Lady, Bernie Yencha about concerns for some of our members & friends of The Club.


    Ken Cichowski & his son John continue to need our prayers & concern as John continues to have problems from his accident at The Florida State Fair Grounds.

    John is currently at the:


        Palm Shores Behavorial Health Center

        1324 37th Ave East

        Bradenton, FL 34208


and is attending school there. If you could send him a Cheering up card to the above address that is funny, it would bring some joy to his life.

    Ken also continues to address concerns relative to his mother.


          "Thirsty Thursday We Will Not Be Held The Next Two Thursdays"


    Last year we discontinued Thirsty Thursdays during the Holiday Season in December. We will discontinue them for the next two Thursdays. If we can get cooks and there is enough interest to hold them through the Holidays we will open the Club for Thirsty Thursday on Dec 14th. We will make that announcement in our next newsletter.
