Bristol Polish American Citizens Club

The Bristol Polish-American Citizens’ Club came into being on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 1923, when small groups of patriotic local men of Polish stock met at the “Old Meadow Street Fire House” to discuss the blessings of American citizenship. Most of the groups had migrated from an enslaved Poland where especially those under the Russian rule had been denied the freedoms which they believed were their heritage. To people like them with a fierce love of liberty, American Citizenship with its’ rights and privileges as well as its’ responsibilities meant the attainment of their fondest dreams.
