Soldier’s Day at the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa

By | Culture, Events, News | No Comments

Once again, the Polish Falcons of America has been invited to participate in the annual Soldier’s Day at the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Doylestown, Pa. This solemn celebration will be held on Sunday, August 18. It is organized by the community of former Polish soldiers living in the United States and Canada.

This year, the celebration will focus on the 100th Anniversary of the return of the Blue Army from France to Poland. Over 20,000 volunteers from America, mostly Members of the Polish Falcons of America, served in this Army.

The program for the day is as follows:

  • 10 a.m. — Breakfast at the Pilgrims’ Center cafeteria
  • 11 a.m. — Laying of wreaths on the grave of past Polish Falcons National President, Dr. Teofil Starzynski, and by the monument “The Avenger” at the Veterans Cemetery
  • 11:30 a.m. — Celebration before the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa (National Anthems, Taps Bugle Call, Rifle Salute, Review of Troops and Parade.)
  • 12:30 p.m. — Holy Mass
  • 1:30 p.m. – 2 p.m. — Presentations by distinguished guests
  • 2 p.m. — Lunch in cafeteria

I am asking for as many Falcon Members to attend as possible. If you plan to attend please let me know as soon as possible so we can let the organizers know what to expect. Please contact me if you have any questions or need additional information.

Czolem,

Timothy L. Kuzma
President & CEO

“Insure Your Love” Month

By | News | No Comments

February is “Insure Your Love” Month!

Protect the ones you love with life insurance from Polish Falcons of America.

Michael, 32, was a fit and healthy family man. As he left to run a 10K race, he kissed his wife, Traci, good-bye along with newborn Calvin and “big” sister Josie. He never made it home.

As he crossed the finish line, Michael collapsed and died. The Kovacic family would never be the same.

Thankfully, they had life insurance. Even though the young couple had been living paycheck to paycheck, their insurance professional had convinced them to buy an affordable policy.

Traci says the hardest part for her was knowing that the love of her life was never coming home. “But the reality is that everything else stayed the same,” she says. “The paychecks stopped immediately, but I still had to keep the lights on, buy food, pay the mortgage and take care of the kids. Having life insurance meant I didn’t have to make any immediate decisions or sell the house.”

“The life insurance saved us—and it still does today,” she says.

Learn more about the life insurance plans available through Polish Falcons of America. Contact John Denning at 800-535-2071 or by email at jdenning@polishfalcons.org.
