I arrived in Seattle in 1979 and quickly found out then volunteered at the Polish Hall. I assisted with organizing various parties and events at the Polish Hall. I found out that there is a Koło Pań ladies organization and became a member there as well . From 1990 I was VP of Parties at the Polish Hall on the Board and helped with dances, balls and New Years balls . I have also assisted in bazaars, festivals and ceremonies over the years. At this time I am a member of the Board of Trustees and Koło Pań.
