Celebrating Pulaski Day in Longwood Florida

Dorothy Dubel, a Florida author of Polish descent, has been asked to be one of the speakers at the Polish National Alliance Lodge 3216, annual Pulaski Day Remembrance at the Polonia Restaurant, 750 S. Hwy 17-92 in Longwood, FL on Sunday, March 20, 2011.  A Polish-style lunch will be served. 

PNA President, Al H. Schwarz will introduce the speakers including PNA Secretary Charles Komosa who will address the issue of redistricting and its affect on the 3216 Lodge.  The luncheon will serve as a memorial remembrance to an historic military figure in the American Revolution, General Casimir Pulaski (1745-1779).

Ms.  Dubel, author of Escaping Danger will honor the memory of those Polish citizenry who struggled as immigrants to attain United States citizenship.  Citing her own ancestors who fled their Krakow village prior to WWI from a life of Nazi despotism in Eastern Europe, she will relate how they overcame the obstacles of language barriers and relocation in a new country.
