Annual Wigilia Dinner

For the past 10 years, our society in December has organized authentic Wigilia dinner, which is the supper celebrated in Poland on Christmas Eve that excludes meat.  In addition to the homemade courses that are served at the dinner, we include a program that explains the traditions of Wigilia and the sounds of Koledy, the singing of Christmas carols in Polish and English.
