Director's Update

Thank you to all who attended our annual fundraiser, the Taste of Polonia Festival. We were blessed with MANY wonderful volunteers and, although threatening, better weather than last year. Final tallies are not completed, but exceptional results were obvious for Friday attendance, Bingo, and the Film Festival. 

In other news, we sadly bid farewell to our Events Manager, Patrizia Fuchs. Patrizia is fulfilling a long time dream of medical school. She plans to volunteer for Copernicus as time permits, but we will truly miss her as part of our daily team. 

Good Luck & Thank You Patrizia. ♥

Gregg Kobelinski, Copernicus Center Director

Visiting Trumpeter Delighted All

Kasia for newsletter 2

A rarely seen or heard treat took place hourly during the Taste of Polonia Festival this year.  Kasia Szychowska, on vacation from Krakow, Poland delighted us with traditional trumpeting from our clock tower.  

This replicated a practice from St. Mary''s church in Krakow, Poland.

See Our TWO  Picture Galleries

We were very lucky this year.  Two VOLUNTEER photographers added to the many wonderful pictures of our hired photographer at the Taste of Polonia Festival.

Our volunteer Gitta literally ran through the festival grounds capturing events as they occurred with her mobile phone.  This allowed us to provide four days of instant coverage (& promotion) on both our Taste of Polonia Facebook & Copernicus Center Facebook Pages.  Her partner, Joe,  provided stunning professional photographs which now reside in one of our two galleries.  Both Gitta & Joe are from Houston Web Design Studio.

Access either gallery from our Photo Event''s Page. Enjoy!
