We started 2016 off with a casual get-together at my home with a Polish Potluck luncheon. Everyone brought something Polish. We had homemade Pierogi made by Adam Burkot (our next speaker – below center-Photos in attachment), Camille Elliot made a special Polish cake, Jeanette Clark brought all kinds of Made in Poland cookies, just to mention a few. We even indulged in a little Polish beer! Everyone had a good time and we’re looking forward to our next Potluck.
