On Saturday, Sept 12, we headed out west of Omaha about 3 hours to the tiny town of Ashton, NE. This was the hometown of Grandpa Larry! While any day is a great day to visit Ashton, we were especially lucky with this visit. The town was celebrating Polish Heritage Days!
Among the activities were...
All you can eat Polish food buffet and dancing to a live polka band in the hall
Tours through the Polish Heritage museum (and shopping in the gift shop)
And of course, chatting outside while spending time with cousins, aunts, uncles and other family members also of Polish descent. There were a ton of Lewandowskis present!
All in all it was a great day! We're proud to be Polish! (Well, some of us are actually a little more authentically Polish than others, but we're not discriminating).
