The Autumn Board meeting of the American Council for Polish Culture (ACPC) was held on Friday, October 21 and 22, 2016 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Glastonbury hosted by the Polish Cultural Club of Greater Hartford, Inc. (PCCGH)

Following the working session on Friday evening, members of the Polish Cultural Club's Executive Board joined the ACPC Board at a welcome reception. Both Boards mingled, renewed old ties, and created new friendships.

On Saturday October 22, the weekend culminated with a gala celebration of the PCCGH's 40th Anniversary at the Riverfront Community Center in Glastonbury. While drizzly and with a chill in the air, the warmth and gaiety emanating from the 100 guests made for an event that will not soon be forgotten. "Let the Polish Music Flow," a concert of traditional Polish folksongs performed by the Theatre of Imagination Novum, had everyone singing along with enjoyment.
