Our History in the Greater Hartford region:
A new building, the present Saints Cyril and Methodius Church, was commenced in 1914, and completed in 1916. A recruitment center for the Polish contingent of the American army being sent to France in World War I, the old church was sold to the Polish National Corporation, Remodelled into the White Eagle Hall, it was later demolished for parking. The site of the church grounds was used for construction of the Polish National Home in 1930.
From its opening on October 12, 1930, the Polish National Home has always been devoted in its activities exclusively to the promotion of the social welfare of the Polish community of Hartford supplementing the Polish tradition of religion at nearby SS. Cyril and Methodius Church with the Polish tradition of nationalism and community cohesion. The two charitable organizations have always worked side by side for the promotion of the religious and social welfare of the Polish community or Polish people of Hartford.
The Polish National Home of Hartford is proud to announce “Mount Everest and the Golden Age of Polish Mountaineering”
by Mark Milewski
Sunday, October 28, 2018 at 1:00 PM
Polish National Home 60 Charter Oak Ave. • Hartford, CT 06106
Mark Milewski summited 29,029 ft. Mount Everest on May 20, 2016. He will share the story of his climb but also place Mount Everest into the context of the Golden Age of Polish Himalayan Climbing of the 1980s and 1990s.
Milewski’s parents, Stanislaw and Anita Milewski, immigrated to the United States from Poland via several countries in-between, part of the post-World War II diaspora. They emigrated from a country that holds a very proud place in the history of climbing in the Himalaya, the highest mountain range in the world.
In the last two decades of the twentieth century, Poles dominated the 8000-meter peaks located there with numerous winter and first ascents. Climbers such as Jerzy Kukuczka, Wanda Rutkiewicz, Krzysztof Wielicki, and many others, were respected internationally and celebrated within Poland for their feats.
Milewski will tell his story and their story; tales of adventure in high places that lift the human spirit yet a chapter of Polish history that is little known outside of international climbing circles.
Milewski is Associate Professor of Business Administration at Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT and a member of the Polish National Home and of the advisory board to the Polish Studies Program at Central Connecticut State University.
