State Representative Tami Zawistowski (R-61) celebrated the 32nd annual “Polish Day at the Capitol,” on May 3 hosted by the Polish Legislative Caucus. The event is held annually to commemorate the passage of the Polish Constitution, this year marking the 232nd anniversary.

A highlight of the celebration is recognition of individuals for their contributions to Connecticut’s Polish-American community and other life accomplishments. Rep. Zawistowski nominated Sara Zak for her leadership and support for the Suffield Polish Heritage Society and its mission, as well as her experience protecting our country through a distinguished military career in the US Navy. Sara received a citation from the General Assembly as well recognition by Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz.

“Polish Day at the Capitol is one of our most honored traditions and I am privileged to join my colleagues and community members for this celebration of our rich history and heritage,” Rep. Zawistowski said. “To see the Polish flag raised above the Capitol is a special moment and I want to thank everyone who joined us for another great event.”
