Polish American Heritage Month concludes this week, but not without one more show of spirit and fanfare…
Join us tonight, Wednesday October 27th for the final night of the Novena to Our Lady of Częstochowa. In celebration of PolishYoungstown’s Black Madonna project, the Mahoning Valley community has spent the last nine days in devotion to the Mary, Queen of Poland, independently and in organized groups at parishes throughout the Valley. The devotion will conclude with a mass followed by a final novena service with several of our Polish and related priests as well as the St. Stanislaus Polish Choir. We were thrilled to learn this morning that St. Stan’s has graciously offered to bring its beautiful replica of the icon to place on the alter for tonight’s service!  Even if you haven’t participated the rest of the past week, you are welcome and encouraged to join us tonight.

Polish Youngstown is again supporting our local university and community as we participate in YSU’s Homecoming Parade on Saturday, October 30th.  Come around 9:30 to the staging area on Wood Street (that’s the street in front of the Cathedral and Youngstown Board of Education) to help decorate our first float. Look for our PolishYoungstown banner near a big navy pickup. Step off is at 11 AM and there will be a car to ride in if you want to do that too. Bring along a bag of candy to hand out in the parade because there is always need for more of that!

This year’s celebration honors 70 years of YSU football with the theme of “Touchdowns and Crowns” so our own royalty Lauren Lotze, Miss Polonia Ohio, will be part of our parade entry. Lotze just returned from the Miss Polonia USA Finals in NYC this past weekend. The 22-year-old North Lima resident competed against 18 other young women from across the country. She was the only non-fluent Polish speaker in the competition and the first ever from the Buckeye State. We are proud to say that Lotze won the Miss Elegance title and was selected as 3rd Runner Up overall. Gratulacje i Sto Lat Lauren!!

And FINALLY, we have info for you on our big Christmas event with the Mazowsze Polish Folk Song and Dance Ensemble. The group will be offering—for the first time EVER in the United States—song and dance workshops on Saturday and Sunday Dec. 4-5th. Sunday evening, the Polish Arts Club of Youngstown will host their annual Wigilia dinner with Mazowsze’s choir and orchestra providing live entertainment for only $35! Tickets are extremely limited so reserve your spot today. On Monday evening, the troupe will perform its full, legendary concert at the State Theatre in Cleveland. PolishYoungstown has great block seats reserved that include participation in a Cast Party after the show. Would you say we are a little excited about all of this? You would be right!

LAST CHANCE: Krakowiaki kids are selling pies and cheesecakes supplied by a PA Dutch bakery just in time for you holiday entertaining. These huge, tasty pies received a big thumbs up in the group taste test. The kids are raising funds to participate in a national Polish folk dance jamboree next summer in Connecticut. Your support would be greatly appreciated. For info call 330-550-0134.

Note: We’ve had calls requesting to purchase copies of Cleveland resident and resistance fighter Halina Junak’s book, Null and Void. Pani Junak is calling her publisher and hopes to have copies available for us by next week. If interested in learning her incredible story, just email us at info@polishyoungstown.com
