Uwaga!

Wiadomość z ostatniej chwili......... Pilne!

Nasz teatrzyk dziecięco-młodzieżowy "Młodzi Polanie" poszukuje nowych talentów.

W ciągu ostatnich czterech lat nasi młodzi aktorzy powyrastali i teraz część ich odchodzi na studia, zostaje mała garstka, a chcemy jak zwykle przygotować na uroczystość Św. Mikołaja jakieś specjalne przedstawienie o tematyce świątecznej. Czekamy na zgłoszenia.

Rodzice pamiętajcie że występy teatralne, śpiew, czy taniec to najlepsza i najłatwiejsza lekcja języka polskiego i możliwość nabycia pewności siebie przy występach przed publicznością (bardzo ważne później w pracy zawodowej).

Kandydaci do Zarządy Domu Polskiego oraz Rady Opiekunów

na rok 2004

Prezes Domu Polskiego:  Elżbieta Filipczuk

Szanowni Państwo,

Zgłaszam swoją kandydaturę na pozycję Prezesa Domu Polskiego.

W mijających dwóch kadencjach Zarząd musiał poświęcić bardzo dużo czasu i energii na uporządkowanie problemów związanych z byłym kucharzem i gospodarzem Domu Polskiego. Z pomocą kilku członków Rady Opiekunów, podjęliśmy również energiczne działania w celu rozwiązania wieloletnich, nabrzmiałych, bardzo poważnych spraw dotyczących wspołistnienia Domu Polskiego i okolicznych mieszkanców; instalacja nowych okien jest istotną częścią naszych starań. Czuję się odpowiedzialna za dokończenie obu tak ważnych dla Domu Polskiego spraw. Procedury prawne oraz ograniczenia finansowe nie pozwoliły mi zakończyc ich w minionym roku.

Chciałabym, z Państwa poparciem i przyzwoleniem, zrobić to w nowej kadencji. Wierzę, że zmiany personalne w Domu Polskim jak i gotowi współpracować ze mną kandydaci do nowego Zarządu pomogą mi osiągnąć ten cel. Chciałabym zaprezentować kandydatów do Zarządu, z którymi współpraca, w przypadku przedłużenia mojej kadencji, przyniosłaby najkorzystniejsze rezultaty: Starszy Wiceprezes - Mirosław Grabowski, Wiceprezes Administracyjny - Andy Okińczyc, Sekretarz Protokółowy - Mira Pawluśkiewicz, Skarbnik - Paul Griffin, Wiceprezes d/s Kultury - Barbara Strutyński, Wiceprezes d/s Zabaw Janina Jeziorska, Wiceprezes Odbudowy - Paweł Krupa, Sekretarz Korespondencyjny - Basia MCNair.

Łączę pozdrowienia

Elżbieta Filipczuk

Wiceprezes Administracyjny - Andy Okińczyc

I am running for the office of Administrative Vice-President of PHA. I believe the experience I have gained as a Trustee and chair of the audit committee, along with serving on the Polish Home Foundation and Seattle-Gdynia Sister City Association will serve PHA well.

   As a long time member of PHA I feel we serve an important role both in the Polish and the American communities. I pledge I will fulfill administrative assignments and tasks in such a way as to best represent PHA and its memberships needs.

Thank you,

Andy Okinczyc

Wiceprezes Odbudowy - Paweł Krupa

Zgłaszam swoją kandydatutrę w nadchodzących wyborach do Zarządu Domu Polskiego na stanowisko Viceprezesa do spraw Odbudowy. 

Paweł Krupa

Dlaczego zdecydowałem się kandydować w wyborach do Zarządu Domu Polskiego? Gdy 12 lat temu przeprowadziliśmy się z Nowego Jorku do Seattle, jednym z pierwszych miejsc które odwiedziliśmy był Dom Polski. Tutaj poznaliśmy wielu z naszych przyjaciół, tutaj w dalszym ciągu spędzamy każdego Sylwestra, tutaj też mieliśmy okazje przeżyć wiele niezapomnianych chwil. Wydaje mi się, że każdy członek polskiej społeczności w Seattle ma coś do zawdzięczenia organizacji Domu Polskiego. Jeżeli zostanę wybrany do Zarządu DP,  chciałbym poświecić trochę mojego czasu i energi, żeby chociaż w małym stopniu przyczynić się do utrzymania a może i rozwoju Domu Poskiego. Wierzę że mogę się przyczynić do tego żeby Dom Polski rozwijał się i funkcjonował przynajmiej tak dobrze, a może i lepiej niż dotychczas.

Paweł Krupa.

I would like to submit my name as a candidate for Correspondence Secretary. I am sending a picture and a paragraph for the Election pamphlet. 

I am Basia McnNair, and I am running for Correspondence Secretary. I have been involved at the Polish Home for many years. I started by dancing and performing at Polish Home functions. I participated in the Ladies Auxiliary activities, as well as being their Treasurer for 16 years. I was the Correspondence Secretary for one year in 1987 and a Trustee for the Polish Home Association for two years. I perform with Podhale at Folklife Festival, bringing Polish culture to Seattle. I am working with the University of Washington Slavic Department as they try to get an endowed teaching position and bring a Slavic Festival weekend to Seattle. I think the Polish Community is a growing community and the Polish Home Association needs to meet the needs of our community and be a good neighbor to those who live around us. I would like to help us meet these goals. 

Thank you very much,

Basia McNair

They're going to paid for this, one or anather way. God see every body and every thing, they can't cover it up. They can cover it for me, but not for God. In Taiwan,Tiengshiang, Hualien County, North East from Taipei, where Fred disappered 5.23.03, after, his phone to his girlfriend.

In Seattle,WA. and after his drawn from ATM machine USA50 dollars. To do this he has to ask some chinese to help him,because the instruction is in chinese, he desn't know the language here,in Taiwan.He just arrived. 2 days and nights, he spend in Taipei. Last phone from him to me was from the airport in Taipei, after his arrived 5.20.03. Safely, I was happy.
