Polishwashington.com is often the first point of contact for anyone who wishes to become involved in the local Polish community. This site refers both new arrivals and long-time residents of the Washington metropolitan area to local Polish groups and institutions. Many people who first have gone through this site later have signed up as members of at least one local Polish organization. Moreover, by including current event announcements on the home page and encouraging site visitors to subscribe to the Polish Global Village email announcement list, polishwashington.com has been instrumental in increasing attendance at local Polish events, which take so much volunteer effort to organize. In fact, polishwashington.com has helped develop the largest Polish email announcement list that is focused almost exclusively on local Poland-related events. Through this site and its announcement list, people who had not been involved in any local Polish organization, but have become curious about Poland-related events, get linked to the community which matches their interests. Many polishwashington.com visitors and Polish Global Village subscribers remain unaffiliated with any local Polish group, but through this site and its companion email list, they stay in touch with the community and come to the events held by local groups and institutions. By becoming a supporter of polishwashington.com, you can become a part of this constructive and very effective community-building activity.
In short, you should support this page if you find it helpful to you personally or valuable for our community.
