Since its founding in 1965, the Polish Heritage Society has sought to give prominence to our cultural heritage and endow Polish traditions with new life in this country. Through its stimulating programs, the Society enhances members’ understanding and enjoyment of Polish history and the culture and values of our forefathers: Provides leadership, preserves Polish traditions, stimulates cultural interest and promotes good fellowship

The evening will begin with a cocktail hour at 6:00PM, then at 7:00PM an elegant buffet dinner and dancing to the music provided by the Dennis Ostopowicz Orchestra, in addition to folk dances by the Polish Intercollegiate Club (PKM). A Chinese Auction will also be conducted during the evening.
