Council 21 of the Polish Union of USA is planning its annual bus trip to Philadelphia on Oct. 6 to participate in the Pulaski Day Parade festivities. This year will mark the 80th anniversary of the parade and the 25th year of the opening of the Polish American Cultural Center in Philadelphia. The observances are held in honor of General Casimer Pulaski, a native of Warsaw, Poland, born on March 6, 1745, and known as the Father of the American Cavalry. The Polish Union of USA is sponsoring the trip as part of its festivities to celebrate Polish American Heritage month. Activities for members and friends include a Mass at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral Basilica, a light luncheon, a memorial tribute to General Pulaski and reserved seating for the parade. The bus will depart from the Polish Union headquarters, 53-59 N. Main St., Wilkes-Barre. Anyone interested in attending should call the Polish Union at 570-823-1611 for more details. Seats will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. The parade will be televised live from 1-2:30 p.m. on WPVI TV-6, ABC. Some of the event planners, from left, are Chris Pagoda and Bill Giebus, co-chairs of the trip, and Charlotte L. Androckitis, chief executive officer and national secretary of the Polish Union of USA.
