Thank you very much for an unforgettable 2015 Christmas Party!
It is hard to believe that on the evening of December 6, 2015, one hundred seventy-five people gathered for the largest, most beautiful, and unforgettable Christmas party in the history of the Polish American Society of Greater Cincinnati (PASGC). This celebration was the annual remembrance of our traditional Christmas dinner in Poland. Thank you all for coming and spending the evening with us; without you, our party would not have been such a success.
From your phone and email messages and from the many conversations I’ve had, it is clear that everyone enjoyed the party and everyone recognizes all the volunteer work that is required to have a Christmas party that will stay in our memories for a long time.
First, I would like to say a big THANK YOU to this year’s sponsors: Molecular Research Center, Inc., Eastgate Dental Care & Family Care, Dr. Jan & Bartosz Labeda DDS, The Cookie Store @ Eastgate Mall (Danuta Connell), Malgorzata Klukowska, PhD, Sandy Murawski, PhD and Tema Systems Inc. (Pawel Krawczyk). Without their contributions, we could not have done as much.
A special thank you to the musicians, mostly non Polish, who worked to learn and play Polish carols. Their lovely music created a warm, holiday spirit. A big thank you to: Deborah Arnold (flute), Bill Hood (guitar), David Oertel (mandolin) and Bill Marshall (piano).
The magician Brett Sears brought joy to the children. Last, but not least, for the children’s joy thank you, Santa Claus, Andy Statt.
Throughout the evening Andrzej Idzikowski, Maria and Pawel Kobak took pictures which you can access on our website. Thank you to Andrzej, Maria and Pawel for your dedication and time.
Another huge thank you to those who helped with decorations and buffet set up and clean up: Richard Benton, Adam Widanski, Paweł Krawczyk, Andrzej Polakowski, Agnieszka Gutowska, Sandy Murawski, Beth i Andy Statt, Jennifer i Ken Zalewski, Maja Kinnear, Dominika Graham, Annette i Bob Dube, Izabela i Tadeusz Cieslar, Ania Koziol, Janusz Purzynski, Karolina Kranmyer, Nikolaj Kloos, Małgorzata Klukowska, David Oertel, Justin Widanski, Jacob Widanski, Jadwiga Basista i Emilia Bacca.
