May 7th 2017 Polonia in Vancouver marked the Anniversary of Polish May 3rd Constitution and International Polonia Day
Traditionally as every year, the Canadian Polish Congress organized the 226th Anniversary of the May 3rd Constitution while marking the Polish Flag Day and the International Polonia Day. Great occasion to celebrate the proud moments of our heritage and our Polish roots.
This year was a historical one because our guest Deputy Mayor, Councellor Raymond Lauie, presented the proclamation of the City of Vancovuer. This document signed by the Mayor of Vancouver, Mr. Gregor Robertson, proclaimed May 2nd 2017 to be Polish-Canadian Day.
This is a memorable and important moment because with this proclamation we celebrated the
Polish-Canadian's being a valued part of Canadian Society in our area. We are proud of these accomplishements and the fact they are being recognized and acknowledged is priceless.
Canadian Polish Congress had an opportunity to thank and recognize many familiar and valued members of our community. This is because of your work, time, and effort the Polish culture and traditions are still alive in British Columbia and Canada.
Thanks to all who helped put the afternoon together, our MCs , artists, children and guests.
