The Parade is held annually on the first Sunday of October and closely coincides with the October 11th General Pulaski Memorial Day, a national observance of his death at the Siege of Savannah.
Joan, along with Orange County’s Miss Polonia, Shannon McNamara will be presented at the Grand Banquet at the Marriott Marquis, NYC on Saturday, September 23, 2017.
