Vote To Remove Visa Requirements For Poles Who Want To Visit U.S.
Dear N.J. Member of Congress
Hi! How R ya?
The Post Eagle editor (Clifton, NJ) informed readers how important you are to America/Poland friendship.
No visa is required for Americans going to Poland, but, Polish citizens need a VISA to come here LEGALLY.
HOUSE RESOLUTION 480 and SENATE RESOLUTION 744 (S. 744) “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act” corrects and reciprocates.
During the founding of our Nation, and ever since, Polish immigrants came to America, helping our nation to be nicer, safer productively.
Please remove Visa incumbency so contemporary Polish citizens may visit America to see what ancestors and other nationalities accomplished that make America a Great Nation – a good place to labor and learn.
Vote YES for House Resolution 480, Senator Resolution 744.
JOSEPH C. HICSWA
Relay for Life Clifton Thanks All For
Their Support With This Year’s Event
On behalf of the American Cancer Society and the planning committee for the 2013 Relay for Life, we would like to thank the residents of Clifton for showing us their hope, generosity and support. More than 800 people on 65 teams spent Saturday night, June 8, 2013 walking the track at Clifton Stadium to raise $105,000 for the American Cancer Society.
60 survivors opened the event by walking the Survivor Lap as community members, friends and family honored them with cheers and applause. At nightfall, 1,000 luminaries were lit around the track, each one representing a loved one lost or loved one fighting cancer now or a survivor.
We want to thank all the volunteers who helped make the event a success. Without them, we never would have made it to this point. We also would like to thank this year’s sponsors for their generosity, which includes Glaxo, Smith, Kline, School 12, School 13, Clifton City Employees, Cupo Insurance Agency, Amalgamated Transit Union Division 822, Charlie’s Care Pet Sitting and Dog Walking LLC, McInerney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Institute LLC, Albert J Pogorelec, DO, Dutch Hill Residents Association, Clifton PBA Local 36, The Drapery and Blind Company, Site Compli, Hail and Company PA, James Muir, Jeffrey M. Kranis, DMD, Somerdale Bar and a anonymously Birthday Sponsor supporting Relay for Life of Clifton. Special thanks to our awesome DJ Jose who kept us moving!
We extend our special thanks to Mayor Anzaldi and the City Council, Matt Watkins, City Manager, Clifton Policemen and Firemen, DPW Supervisor Greg Schabel and his employees, and Board of Education employees for their support; without their assistance the event would not have operated so efficiently or smoothly and been so successful.
We would also like to acknowledge the newspaper coverage that was extended us to make the citizens of Clifton more aware of cancer and our event. The coverage of our purple ribbons and purple line certainly made the citizens take notice of what we were about. Our fundraisers were successful because of the generous coverage about all our events.
All funds raised through Relay for Life will create a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. If you or someone you know is diagnosed with cancer, the American Cancer Society can help. Call 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org.
