Hudson Valley Polonaise Society
Celebrates 25 Years!

NEW YORK – The Hudson Valley Polonaise Society was established to preserve and protect the Polish Culture of the residents of the area and to foster, maintain and promote an ongoing interest in Polish traditions. This is achieved by sponsoring Polish language classes, free polka dance lessons, and annual celebrations of Wigilia and Swieconka. The Hudson Valley Polonaise Society also issues a quarterly newsletter mailed to over 800 current and former residents in and outside of the local area. Scholarships are annually awarded to Orange County High School Seniors who trace their roots to Poland. Our members seek to embrace the traditions and customs of Poland along with the freedoms we enjoy as citizens of this great country. We are proud to be Americans with Polish Heritage.

In accordance with our 25th Anniversary this year, we will be holding a Dinner-Dance celebration on Saturday, October 22nd from 6pm to 11pm at the Middletown Elks Lodge, 48 Prospect Street, Middletown, NY. This annual dinner-dance will feature special guests, the Pokolenie Dancers, and dancing to the music of award-winning Dennis Polisky and the Maestro’s Men. Hors d’oeuvres are served at 6 pm, the Grand Polonaise at 7 pm followed by your choice of a Chicken Cordon Bleu or Roast Beef dinner.  A wonderful night of great music, delicious food and good friends.
