Fort Pulaski, Pulaski Square, the Pulaski Monument and his burial site in Monterey Square are all located in Savannah, GA and serve as testaments to General Pulaski's valor.
Our committee's mission is to promote Polish pride, culture and to recognize General Pulaski's achievements. We want to ensure that future generations of Americans will also continue to remember this hero.
On March 5, 2016 we will be hosting the third Commemorative Birthday Ceremony here in Savannah to mark General Pulaski's 271st birthday. The commemoration will be held at Monterey Square (corner of Bull and W. Gordon Streets). This is the site of General Pulaski's burial and monument that was erected in his name acknowledging the great contributions and ultimate sacrifice he made for this country.
The ceremony is free and open to the public. Our ceremony will be held between 1:30-2:00 p.m. We will have a procession of local and visiting Polish clubs who will lead the ceremonies into Monterey Square. This will be followed by an Invocation, laying of wreaths at General Pulaski's tomb with some brief remarks by dignitaries
Following the ceremony, we are holding a celebratory dinner reception at the Landings on Skidaway Island. The cash bar will begin at 5:00 p.m. A dinner buffet will follow at 6:00 p.m. The cost for the buffet is $45.00 per person and please RSVP by February 5 by calling either Glenn Ball/Janina Gajdamowicz 912-335-1754, or Edward Krolikowski 912 598-4421. During our dinner, we will pay tribute to Mr. Edward Pinkowski, the founder of the Poles in America Foundation. Mr Pinkowski will be celebrating his 100th birthday this year and would like to honor him at this event.
The Savannah General Pulaski Committee of the American Council for Polish Culture (ACPC) was formed as an organization to promote the achievements of a truly great Polish-American hero, General Casimir Pulaski. General Pulaski fought valiantly in the Revolutionary War including the Battle of Savannah where he died on October 9, 1779 while defending Savannah and our country from attacks by the British.
