Dear Members, Friends and Patrons
Best wishes to all and I hope everyone had
an enjoyable Easter.
March and April were a couple of busy months
at our club. We hosted the out of state band
“Buffalo Touch”, March 1
st and 2nd. The event
was enjoyed by all, although we did not have the
best turnout. Many thanks to David and Princess
Bonczkiewicz for their efforts in hosting this
event as well as our kitchen staff and our bartenders
for their donated time and hard work
during this two day event. March 16
th we held
our membership meeting and celebrated St.
Patrick’s Day. As I was not able to be present
at the meeting, I understand it was a good meeting
and I would like to thank our 1
st Vice President
Sylwia Martynowicz for filling in and holding
the meeting. I missed the good corn beef and
cabbage dinner, compliments to our kitchen
staff. Our special event on April 13
th, the Easter
Dinner was very well attended. I only wish we
could have the same attendance at all of our Pulaski
Club events. The Easter dinner buffet included
variety of delicious polish dishes and
desserts. We had many compliments and the
compliments once again go to all our officers,
directors and members who devoted their time
in preparation for that special event. Special
thanks to Kaz and Larry Tysiac for decorating
the hall and adding a special Easter touch to the
table décor. Many thanks to all the ladies and
gentlemen who worked hard in the kitchen preparing
and serving this great Easter Dinner. The
Dyngus Day event was fun and we enjoyed
many different dishes prepared by our members.
Thank you to all who contributed a favorite
dish to our pot luck table.
We only have couple of events in the month of
May before we close for the summer months.
Please join us for our special event “

be a challenge, but I have faith that working
together we can do it!
