PASGC wants to thank everyone who led and who helped to prepare these events

PASGC wanted to thank all officers, members of the board and the web master for service to this organization in 2011.


Chris Mystkowski and Peter Kasprzycki and Ted Day decided not to seek re-election to the PASGC Board for 2012 calendar year.

We would like to thank all of them for great service to this organization for many years. Chris , Peter and Ted organized some of the most memorable events promoting Polish culture in Cincinnati. They dedicated their time; money and private resources to educate Cincinnatians about polish achievements in Arts, music and literature. They also brought us great joy by inviting Polish artists to Cincinnati and by organizing exhibits about famous Poles

Their contribution will be remembered for many, many years.

I can only hope that they will continue to support PASGC with ideas, advise and other contributions.


Our challenge going forward is to fill void that their departure created for our organization.
