26thh seminar of the Polish American Ethnological Society was held on October 26th, 2019
at the Trustees Conference Room in the Central Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library
at 10 Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn, NY 11238.
This was Society’s 26th seminar, but only the first one here, in New York City. With this move we are beginning new phase in the history of our organization. Up to now our seminars took place in Ventnor, NJ, where the headquarters of the Society were located, and where Andrew Wala, the director and spiritus movens of the organization lived.
His sudden passing in 2018 was a shock to all, to his family, friends and to the organization which he lead for over 40 years.
The ideas behind the creation of our Society are great and worth spreading, so we are going to continue.
Society is in transition. We are planning to organize more events in the first half of the next year.
We hope that new members will join us, and our organization will grow.
