Recent Outreach Events
Lowell, September 2015
On September 20, 2015 the Lowell Polish Cultural Committee and the PGSMA hosted and PGSMA genealogical outreach at the Dom Polski in Lowell. A crowd of 75 attendees listened to speakers Alan Doyle Horbal and Sara Campbell present talks suitable for both the beginner and avid researcher.
After the talks, volunteers were on hand to assist with translations, research, and questions. The ever popular Map Your Ancestral Village display was manned by two volunteers.
The Lowell Polish Cultural Committee assisted with organizing, publicizing, and running this event. The group provided refreshments as well as a table of additional resources. The Dom Polski in Lowell hosted this event allowing those living in and around in the surrounding areas the opportunity to attend this event.
Worcester, November 2014
On November 8, 2014 the Krakowiak Polish Dancers of Boston, a 75-year-old troupe, devoted to celebrating Polish culture and traditions through song and dance, performed at the Worcester Public Library. The program was part of the Worcester Ethnic Mosaic Series at the Library and was supported in part by a grant from the Worcester Arts Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
The PGSMA was excited to have the opportunity to have a table at the performance venue, to meet so many new folks from the Worcester area, and to enjoy the performance of the wonderful dancers.
If your area is having a Polish event of any type and would like the PGSMA to provide an informational table, please contact us! We'd love to attend and to help people learn more about us and to assist people with an interest in Polish culture and genealogy.
