Polish American Congress (PAC) update

As you could say from my previous Newsletter I was in Poland on long "working" vacation. Our children were attending a summer school in Warsaw from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. and I was able to do some activities. Most of them were connected with my Polonia affairs and I would like to write a separate note on that. Beside being for two days in Polish Parliament, I met with prof. Stelmachowski, President of "Wspolnota Polska" with whom I discussed at length Polonia issues, and some of them communicated to Polish American Congress officials in Chicago. I visited the Presidential Palace and I met with Undersecretary of State in charge of international affairs Andrzej Krawczyk.
I also had a productive meeting with the President of the Institute of National Remembrance.

I was kept up to date on San Francisco Polonia affairs by several people, who are long time subscribers to this Newsletter. I am very greatful for their work. Please accept official "THANK YOU" from me. You know who you are. Thank you so much.

After coming back to the Bay area I started to decipher what really happened at the July 9, 2006, Polish American Congress Election Meeting. This is my summary.

The meeting took place as scheduled, after beeing posponed from June 18, which I could have attended. There were more people than usually, I think due to the ongoing for few months discussion over the past of two PAC officers. There was a controversy at the meeting, who should chair the meeting. After some discussion, the assembly voted in Mr. Zdzislaw Zakrzewski. The meeting continued smoothly and as a result we have new PAC leaders in Northern California. MORE:

The former officers did not like the outcome of the meeting and they are contesting the results with the Grievance Committee of PAC in Chicago. No matter what would be the decision of the PAC Grievance Committee one can say that this is the new beggining for PAC in Northern California. Many people who left PAC over last 15 years are coming back and new people are signing up. I think it is in part due to the consistent work of the new PAC President, Mr. Zdzislaw Zakrzewski. As an example I will give his recent article in our local "Nasza Gazetka" where he reflects on Polonia affairs:

His article is followed by a very nice appeal to all Poles to take things in their own hands and become a member of the Polish American Congress. Please read it as page 3 of the above link and take into consideration to become a member of PAC. Polonia will be in such shape as we ALL participate and share the responsibility. It is a very important organization and can be a significant help in promoting Poland in US, as well as serving us locally. Please think about it, would you like Polonia to function better? If yes, please join in. Even if you are busy and cannot volunteer for any work, your membership will be important signal that you care. The application is at the below link. Please mail it to Mr. Zakrzewski at 770 Marshall Street, Redwood City, CA 94063. He will contact you regarding recommendations. You just fill out name, address and phone:

Please join the best Polish American organization!

Call 1 cent per minute from USA to Poland !!!!!!!!

We tested many calling cards which are available at To get them you need to click on the card picture in the upper left corner. You will see many cards to pick from. They all deliver superb quality, but the differences are in maintenance fees, taxes and access numbers. Some of the cards can be used from Poland, few can be used with a web interface, where you can connect any two phones in the world. That way you can call from Poland to US for just 3 cents per minute - card CONTINENTAL. There is no connection fee on any card.

Here are other recommendations depending on your calling pattern:
CHEAP STREET - Frequent and long calls - effective rate (including taxes and maintenance fee) 1.5 to 2.5 cents per minute
JUPITER - Infrequent calls, can call from Canada and Russia - effective rate (no maintenance fee, including taxes and rounding) 2.5 - 3.0 cents per minute
BIZON - Infrequent calls - can call from many countries in Europe, but not Poland - effective rate (as above) 3.5 to 3.8 cents per minute - INCLUDING ALL TAXES!!!

The best thing is that there is no obligation to continue, no phone hookup. You have a complete freedom in your decisions. receives 10% of the commission. Currently it amounts to few dollars per month. The funds help to offset the expenses the volunteers pay in order to run the web site. Please help by asking your friends to purchase the calling cards at
