PAC-WI Special Recognition

SPECIAL RECOGNITION

The Polish American Congress – Wisconsin Division salutes three outstandingorganizations on the anniversaries of their founding. We congratulate these organizations for their many contributions to our Polish American community, in Wisconsin and nationally.

 

POLISH ROMAN CATHOLIC UNION OF AMERICA
140 Years of Service

This year marks the 140th anniversary of the founding of the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America, in 1873, as the very first fraternal society created to serve the needs of the Polish people in America. Through the years the PRCUA has been very active and visible in Wisconsin.

POLISH WOMEN’S ALLIANCE OF AMERICA
115 Years of Service

The year 2013 also marks the 115th anniversary of the birth of the
Polish Women’s Alliance of America, the first national fraternal
society of Polish women in the U.S.A. The PWA, like the
PRCUA, has long been an important force in our state.

POLANKI
60 Years of Service

In 1953, the Polish Women’s Cultural Club of Milwaukee, POLANKI, one of this
country’s leading organizations devoted to the promotion of knowledge of
our cultural heritage in America, was established by four farsighted
individuals: Harriet Gostomska, Felicia Kwasieborska,
Maria Laskowska, and Angela Dubiel Mischke.
(Due to a scheduling conflict, POLANKI will be honored at
the 2014 PAC-WI Polish Independence Day/Veterans Day event.)

Congratulations to all and our very best wishes to your members!
