Saturday is Polish Day in KCK!
|Margaret Czuczejko wants to give you a nice cabbage roll|
Last year, the committee organizing the annual Polski Day in Kansas City, Kansas, cooked up enough food to feed a small town: 1,000 cabbage rolls, 350 pounds of sausage, 220 pounds of sauerkraut and 1,500 pierogies stuffed with potato and cheese and sauteed in butter. And more than 800 visitors to the festival ate it all up.
On Saturday, May 8, the Polski Day folks will do it all again.
Once the hub of the Polish community in Wyandotte County, St. Joseph Catholic Church (which merged with a German Catholic Church, St. Benedict’s, in the 1970s to become the St. Joseph-St. Benedict’s Parish) at 801 Vermont Street began celebrating the neighborhood’s Polish heritage 26 years ago with a parade and a breakfast of eggs and Polish sausage at the now-defunct Gossip Inn saloon.
