On Thursday, July 7th at 7:00 pm, join us for cocktails, appetizers, and a talk by Dr. Tim Crain on the history and culture of Poland.

poland-wawelOn Friday, July 29th at 11:45 am, join us for a luncheon and book discussion. The book is The Zookeeper’s Wife, by Diane Ackerman. Inspired by the unpublished diary of Antonina Zabinska, this book tells a story of heroism and self-sacrifice during the Nazi invasion of Warsaw, Poland. Discussion will be moderated by Mariann Maris, retired professor of English from UWM.  The cost of lunch is $12, and will include wine or a sample of Polish vodka. If you’ve already registered for the 2017 pilgrimage, you can enjoy lunch at no charge.

Both events will be held in The Astor Room at The Residence at 2462 N. Prospect Avenue. Please RSVP to Anne Catalane at 414.220.3250 or acatalane@milwaukeecatholichome.org.
