We would like to share with you a brief history of our organization.
In 1985 we became registered as a bonafide organization with a membership of 15, by 1989 our membership soared to over 900. It became apparent that a suitable meeting place conveniently located in the Tri-County area would be needed.
A dedicated search was undertaken and in 1989 this building and the 12 surrounding acres met the criteria as the future home of the APCC.
The exterior of the building itself has a rather unusual appearance, the variety of construction materials came from many sources and areas within the United States and Europe. The interior showcases woodwork from prominent residences, such as the Rockefeller Family Estate. Prior to our purchase, the building was an Architectural Museum. The interior was modified to suit the needs and purposes of the APCC in order to serve our membership and guests.
Our Center is being used for membership activities and also serves as a setting for weekly card parties, ballroom and Polish folk dancing, and summer socials. Also, we offer our banquet facility for weddings, showers, retirement parties, Christenings, graduations, funeral receptions, Christmas parties, or any other occasion you may have. Please keep our Center in mind when planning your next event.
On February 14, 2004, the dedication of the Center’s new addition took place. An elaborate new wing with a separate entrance was added to our already impressive facility. In conjunction with our original facility we can now seat 1000 people. Our new wing can be sectioned off for smaller, more intimate gatherings, Whatever your desires, we at APCC can make them a reality, by offering the old world charm of our original main hall and the modern classic elegance of our new wing!
The restaurant which features Polish – American Cuisine opened to the public on February 4, 1991 with amazing results and was given on May 10, 2000 the official name of Wawel Restaurant, named after the famous historic castle in Krakow.
We are very proud of our accomplishments and it is our goal that future generations will benefit from our beginnings and continue to carry on the ideals of their Polish heritage and culture.
