We kept our promise: Polish Day was bigger and better than last year! Thanks to all of you who were able to come out and enjoy the bands, music, food, vendors, workshops and performances. Did you get to dance to the PolishYoungstown Polka?  CDs will be available very soon! It is amazing how much you learn from year to year and I can’t say enough about how impressed I was with the PolishYoungstown Team and its volunteers. The initiative taken to get bonus items done before hand and throughout the day made details come together that you might never notice but simply got to enjoy. Special thanks go out to the Most Reverend Bishop George Murry-ski and St. Stanislaus Polish Choir for getting things off to a great start. And congrats to Cortland resident Jason Lee for winning our first ever pierogi eating contest. He managed to get down more than 15 pierogi in less than three minutes—very impressive! I think it was thanks to the support of our enthusiastic pierogi mascot! Thanks to Omalia Event Photography, we have pictures from the day ready for you to view here. Sure we are still struggling with trying to feed 300 people at once, but we hope the Take Out window, activities in the food line and two rows of servers helped make it more pleasant for you. We are looking for your comment and suggestions on the event so please share your thoughts with us at info@polishyoungstown.com.

We are not resting…You asked for us to take you out to one of the wineries --you got it! In celebration of Dożynki, the harvest festival, Polish Happy Hour Youngstown will be heading out to L'uva Bella Winery out Route 224 this Thursday, Sept 9th to enjoy the fruit of the vine. Of course, there will be some Polish beer for those who prefer, but the creative folks there may even create a special "White Eagle" blend for us that night so it’s time to try something new! They will also be putting out one of their lovely antipasto bars to whet your appetite to dive into one of their signature pizzas or sandwiches.  Host wine maker Joe Hollabaugh will talk to us about grape harvests and the creative process he goes through to convert the Mosto Bello and Bello Chilean juice into their many varieties of wine.  Last month a nice crowd came out to participate in our annual PHH Cornhole Tournament on the great patio at Shakers in Liberty.  Don’t miss out on the fun!

But it can’t all be fun and games. It is back to school time and this fall we are expanding our Tuesday Polish language classes at St Peter & Paul Church on Covington Street in Youngstown.  Tonight, September 7th at 7 PM there will be an Open House to review and describe the basic, children’s (1-8th grade), beginner and advanced beginner classes. It is never too early to learn a new skill so come on down and check it out. More info and updated registration forms are available here.

On a serious note, September 1st marked the anniversary of the German Invasion of Poland that start of World War II. This misrepresentation of how this event and the further invasion by Russia took place has affected the perception of Poles to this day. That is why the casual comments from Fox News commentator Bill O'Reily were quickly responded to by our friend Dr. Thaddeus Radzilowski, President of the PIast Institute in Hamtramck.  Read the whole story HERE.

COMING UP: Oktoberfest  at Conneaut Lake Park is September 18-19..the Carpatho Rusyn Society is hosting its annual Vatra on Sept 18th… Sept. 26th is Lawrence County Polish Day at nostalgic Cascade Park will feature Lenny Gomulka and Henny & the Versa J’s It is sure to be a great time!
