On the 99th Anniversary of regaining independence by Poland after 123 years of partitions we at the Polish Club Sikorski were celebrating the freedom and independence which are the corner stones of any democracy and are the basics of self-reliance and prosperity of any nation. Independence carries a promise if not assurance of basic human rights.
We chose to run the Festivities at the Polish Club Sikorski under the banner:
Happy Independence Day Poland!
And we celebrated it with Polish food, dance and music.
Over 600 people attended; Poles and Australians. Food was great: hunter’s stew, split pea and ham soup, sausage sizzle, hot dogs, dumplings, red borscht with croquet, Polish vegetable salad. We had bouncy castle for kids, face painting, fairy floss, volleyball, bonfire, and fantastic Raffle.
There was also an artistic program where Mezzo-soprano Daniela Birch sang few beautiful Polish and Italian songs. This was a short program prepared by Daniela almost ad hoc. We hope that Daniela will take part in the future events at the Polish Club.
The hearts of all guests were taken by young and very young dancers from the Polish Dance Group Kukułeczka. The young performers presented two fantastic folklore dances. They gave us youthful energy, rhythm, and a lot of smiles. We all loved the dance, the colours the music.
Well done Kukułeczka!
The music was provided by Polish duo Polperth, Ula Sikorska and Ed Maryjewski.
