The United States recognizes Polish-American Heritage in October, so there is no better time for the Suffield Polish Heritage Society (PHS) to meet again. After a two-and-a-half-year hiatus, the group will finally resume its first Wednesday-of-the-month meetings on October 5. The gathering will be held at the Suffield Ambulance Center at 10 a.m.
Long-standing members of the PHS look forward to meeting anyone of Polish descent interested in sharing, perpetuating and preserving the eastern European culture of their ancestors. The group also enthusiastically welcomes current residents of Suffield and the surrounding area who emigrated from Poland after the fall of Communism in 1989.
The Polish Heritage Society will also be present at Suffield on the Green (September 10 and 11) alongside its parent organization, the Suffield Historical Society. Stop by to learn more about the town’s Polish history and the immigrants who established their new homes here about 100 years ago. Add your family branches and leaves to the ever-growing Suffield Polish family tree. If you have written your ancestors’ stories, please contribute them to the collection maintained by the Historical Society and the Kent Memorial Library. Visit the booth to suggest topics for future PHS meetings and indicate any interest in evening sessions, in person or virtual, for those unable to attend weekday meetings.
The Polish Heritage Society looks forward to seeing you on the green or at future meetings.
