30th Anniversary Year, 2018
Dear Members, Friends & Supporters:
2018 is a historic year for the Polish American Cultural Center Museum as it marks the 30th Anniversary of the Museum Exhibit Hall. It was organized to promote Polish culture and pride to Polish Americans and be a place to welcome people of all nations to learn more about Polish history, and the accomplishments and valor of the Polish people. The history of Poland was first documented in 966 AD. The accomplishments of Polish Americans have been documented since the First Polish Settlers arrived at Jamestown, Virginia in 1608.
During the last 30 years the Museum Exhibit Hall has been a focal point for tourists visiting America’s Most Historic Square Mile. Annually millions of tourists visit Historic Philadelphia where America’s Independence began. The Polish American Cultural Center Museum is proud to be the only Polish American related institution located on an American Historic Trail, just 3 blocks from Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and other historic area sites.
Some of the Museum’s Exhibit Hall accomplishments include:
1. It welcomes tourists from all over America and around the world. Because of its location, tourists
are within walking distance from the Visitors Center and dozens of historic area sites.
2. The Museum is listed on Historic Philadelphia area street signs, tourist maps, Internet sites, at the Visitors Center, as well as historic area organizations, which direct visitors to the Polish American Cultural Center Museum. Visitors of many nationalities often write in the visitor’s book that after they visited the Museum they were more aware of why the Polish people are proud of their heritage.
3. The Museum is open on a regular schedule, admission free. The large Polish and American flags on the front of the building also remind people that Polish and Polish American history are on display in the Museum and that we are pleased to welcome visitors.
These are just a few examples of the accomplishments of the Polish American Cultural Center Museum. As we continue our efforts to promote the museum, we must also address the costs of services to maintain ongoing operations. We need your financial support to maintain the museum and our outreach to visitors of this great institution.
Enclosed with this letter is a reply form and reply envelope. Kindly respond as soon as possible. We will proudly list the names of all 30th Anniversary Year Campaign Donors on our Internet site and in upcoming editions of the Polish American News. Donations are tax deductible.
On behalf of the Board, members and volunteers of the Polish American Cultural Center Museum, I thank you for your consideration of this request. If you need additional information, contact me at: (215) 922-1700 or [email protected] I look forward to your reply.
