As we recover from the COVID pandemic isolation, we are making plans for fall activities. For example, all of us sometimes struggle with the most efficient usage of cell phones, emails, texting etc. Our students will host a series of educational sessions in the fall. Interested? Email us at email@example.com and we will notify you of the dates. We look forward to seeing you soon.
We are always looking for members and donors. We exist because you care to support us and our students. Thank you for your support.
Polish American Engineers Association of Florida held its first post-COVID fundraiser to benefit its scholarship fund. The PAEA Board is pleased to report that the event was successful as it will allow them to be more generous in granting scholarships to the 9 applicants for the 2021/2022 academic year. The winners will be announced shortly.
The outdoor event was held on May 22, 2021 at the Seminole Lake Park Shelter in Seminole, FL. Surrounded by the lake, playground with a climbing wall and a volleyball net, the area provided fun for the kids and a shade for the adults. Many thanks to the grill master Grzesiek (newly-elected President), Jurek (President Emeritus), the PAEA Board and all those who donated time, dishes, etc. We would like to express our special gratitude to the Polish School in Clearwater, especially Irena Bogusiewicz, teachers, parents and, of course, students, for joining us after their own year-end ceremony. Thanks to the local sister organizations for joining us as well. We are grateful to the raffle donors among them: Kozuba Distillery, Darek Urbaniak of For You Styling Studio, Polish Center for donating Sunday dinners, Chris & Richard for offering an afternoon cruise on a sail boat, Tom & Anna for the bottle of Jack Daniels, and a few other baskets.
