Polish American String Band is conducting a Tile Campaign to support the band. Please support their campaign if you can. Information about how you can purchase a commemorative tile is listed below.
Also, the annual Port Richmond Christmas Serenade will take place tomorrow evening ( 12/20/14), leaving Polish American’s clubhouse at 5pm. The band will be parading with Santa through the streets of Port Richmond playing your favorite Christmas tunes. Please come out and support the Pride of Port Richmond!
Since 1933 the Polish American String Band (PASB) has been a vital part of the Mummers Parade. We are very proud of our commitment to entertaining the public as well as our reputation of being good neighbors and citizens representing the Mummers, the City, Port Richmond and the Polish community.
For the first seventy-six years of our existence we rented our meeting and rehearsal space, whether it be the Polish American Association Club, the Polish Eagles Sports Club or the Columbia Club. Our dream has always been to own and operate our own clubhouse with a commitment and pledge to proudly represent the Polish and Port Richmond community.
In 2009 part of that dream was realized as we purchased an eyesore property at Westmoreland and Salmon Streets in Port Richmond. Utilizing our own member’s labor, we renovated and transformed the outside structure to blend in with the neat row homed neighborhood. We’ve opened our doors to the community to use for civic meetings as well as our neighbors utilizing our facility for baby and wedding showers, birthday and graduation parties and other family functions at a very reasonable fee in comparison to other local venues.
We are now in the final stages of our internal renovations to the club and we are asking you to be part of our everlasting foundation with your tax deductible support for the Polish American String Band through our commemorative tile project.
For a donation of $100, you will receive a 6″ x 6″ tile or for $400, you will receive a 12″ x 12″ tile with a custom message to be permanently displayed in the band’s club house.
All donations are tax-deductible and proceeds go toward the preservation and growth of Polish American String Band. If you can, please help us keep music, heritage, and tradition alive and thriving in Philadelphia.
