CONGRATULATIONS FOR 60 HISTORIC YEARS

 

On January 6,  the Polish Canadian Womens’ Federation, Branch #4 Vancouver members met together for a historic and memorable celebration of the 6oth anniversary of the birth of our federation. About 40 of us, including some honoured guests, spent an enjoyable and heartwarming afternoon together recounting tales of the past, singing Polish Christmas carols backed by the accomplished strummings of Sister Renata on the guitar and feasting on Polish delicacies. Other highlights of this memorable event included sharing a sumptuous commemorative cake that we will all remember fondly for many weeks to come, listening to Rosemary Mallory’s enchanting story and receiving Father Slawek Oblak’s stirring blessing. The afternoon was capped by our group singing renditions of both the Canadian and Polish National anthems. Many thanks to everyone who made this fantastic event possible and truly a day to remember.
