The Polish Heritage Society invites everyone of Polish descent to march with us in the town’s 350th Anniversary Parade on Saturday, October 9.
Please join us in honoring our ancestors and displaying pride in our heritage. Participants will carry signs with the surnames of their grand or great-grand parents. The group will be accompanied by traditional Polish music. Some marchers will be dressed in cultural costume.
Residents of Suffield include as many as five generations that descended from the first Polish immigrants that came to Suffield at the turn of the 20th century. The heritage of some was eventually masked by a name that is more obviously recognized as Irish, Italian, German, English or Spanish. Help us highlight some of the Polish names that have faded into history.
