This year marks two special anniversaries, the 100th anniversary of the Polish Home Association (PHA) in Seattle and 100 years of Poland regaining its Independence. At times, histories of both ran in parallels and were often interconnected. For a century, PHA has been a cornerstone for Polish community in Seattle maintaining traditions and supporting events that defined the restoration of independent Poland.
Our Centennial Celebration is a time to mark this milestone, celebrate our heritage and look forward to the next century of working with new generations to come. Special activities marking this anniversary began this year and will run until November 2018.
