Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Polish Heritage Society is to develop a spirit of pride and sharing of polish history, culture and traditions.
Our society was founded by a group of Polish Americans who responded to a need to educate others about the history, culture, and traditions of the Poles and Poland in a spirit of friendship and solidarity.
Why Northeastern Wisconsin?
Our society has members from Anchorage, AK to Montreal, QC and Ocala, FL. Poles were the second largest immigrant population in WI and put down roots in all corners of the state, from the industrial center of Milwaukee to the farmland around Stevens Point. Our largest membership is in the northeastern Wisconsin area.
- Newsletter - We keep members aware of the society's functions with informative newsletters six times a year. The newsletter contains information on local, national and international events of interest to Polish Americans.
- Special Observances - We observe Paczki Day, Easter, Polish Heritage Month and the Christmas season.
- Local Events Participation - We present educational and cultural programs in area schools, at Art Street, Arti Gras and at Pulaski Polka Days.
- Language Instruction - We conduct beginning and intermediate Polish language classes at St. Norbert's College.
- An Area Resource - We proudly serve as a community resource to those interested in Poland's culture, language and history.
