There will be a short program followed by the singing of traditional Polish Kolendy and American Christmas carols. The public is invited. Tickets are $25 for non-members and $23 for members. A raffle will be held to benefit the local scholarship fund and the PAC Charitable Foundation, which provides medical supplies to children’s hospitals in Poland.

Members of the planning committee, from left, first row, are Janiece DeMuro and Carol Matiko. Second row: Bernard Kolodziej, June Swida, Septa Harowicz and Dennis Hlavac.
