Polish Falcons of America Ethnic Workshop
Polish Harvest Festival Workshop
The Polish Falcons of America is sponsoring a Polish Harvest Workshop on Sunday, Aug. 11 from 1-4 p.m. at Polish Falcons Nest 6 in Cheektowaga, N.Y. The workshop is open to the public.
Presented by Lawrence G. Kozlowski, PFA Polish Cultural Commissioner, the workshop is one part of the new Polish Falcons Legacy Project. Lawrence is the recipient of the coveted OSKAR KOLBERG CULTURAL AWARD, presented by the Polish Ministry of Culture in Poland. He is the author of six books on Polish folklore and folkarts.
“This Project is devoted to supporting the living cultural heritage of Polish Americans,” explained Timothy L. Kuzma, PFA National President. “We are fortunate to be working with Larry to create a way through which Polish Americans can share their traditions and keep them alive for future generations,” he continued.
Among the many activities at the workshop, participants will learn about Polish harvest traditions, create a harvest wreath and even try their hand at some Polish cooking.
“The primary purpose of the workshop is to safeguard and perpetuate the cultural heritage and folk arts practiced in the Polish American community, with an emphasis for the future generations to share and remember,” said Mr. Kozlowski.
The cost to participate is $10 for Polish Falcon Members and $15 for non-Members. Families of two or more pay $20 and $25 respectively. Children under 18 are free.
Polish Falcons Nest 6 is located at 3171 Broadway St., Cheektowaga, NY 14227.
These workshops are presented as a public service to those individuals interested in learning, sharing and maintaining the rich culture of the Polish People in the Buffalo area.
