Default Thank you

This site is fantastic. Thank you all for the tips on the European stores where hopefully I can, finally, find some Farmers cheese!

I am interested in learning about any opportunities, within the Charlotte/Fort Mill area, to share with other polish-american individuals, interested in knowing if there is a regularly scheduled polish mass at one of our catholic parishes......I had heard there was one held at the wonderful St. Philip Neri,(Munn Rd.,Fort Mill,SC), easter weekend...I was so sad to have been at the wrong church that Sunday!!! St. Patrick's catherdral is such a lovely historical church....and there's the other closer to downtown Charlotte....recieved much recognition for a fresco work that was done some years ago......polish or latin masses at either? Latin would be quite nice.

......I would die to have the opportunity of attending a polish "type" of wedding.........it's been so long since we've had one in the family....talk about an excellent time......
I have a lovely Ukrainian friend who shops at the european grocery on Independence Blvd. and Kalinkas in Pineville is interesting....they sometimes have individually wrapped candies made in Poland! (Vodka, Cognac, Brandy flavored candies, in such beautiful, colored wrappings)

Default polonia fading

Dzien dobry, I'm from Baltimore, MD and starting in the late 19th century Poles began arriving here. Next to Ellis Island the port of Baltimore was second. Polish neighbors were prominent all around the harbor, Many beautiful churches were built. Unfortunately the 21st century has seen the Polish neighborhoods and establishments disintergrate away, The only remaining Roman Polish Catholic church, attendence is very small and the only Polish National church even smaller. Still you can get paczki, pierogies, golumbki, keizcka and kielbasa. How are other communities holding on?

x2!!! So many good Polish places to eat in Cleveland and all the street fairs always had good homemade pierogies and stuff. Not too many ethnic neighborhoods in Charlotte that I've seen.

Other than oktoberfest in pineville, I have yet to see one polka dance - regardless of nationality - occuring in the Charlotte area. I would think there is interest - with the large international community present! Let's make it happen!

I am in the Denver, NC area and miss my mom's homemade pierogi. The insides were mashed potatoes and cheese. I have tried several times to create them, but have never succeeded. If anyone gets something Polish going, I would love to attend (and help out, of course!). I make great stuffed cabbage rolls.

Last two years i spent in New Mexico in Junior college and after graduation I moved here to the Queens University of Charlotte. i will be more than glad if I will get chance to meet some Polish people. Please let me know about the church or meeting places.
