Preparing for the Pulaski Day Parade

BY IAN THOMSON
While previous Pulaski Day parades focused on a central theme, this year’s event broke with tradition to commemorate a number of different landmarks. Jennifer Costa, vice-president of the General Pulaski Memorial Parade Committee—the organization that runs the event—explained that the 2009 parade was honoring, among others, the 70th anniversary of the Nazi/Soviet invasion of Poland, the 65th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, and the 20th anniversary of the end of communism in Poland.
