Pulaski praise

I thoroughly enjoyed your coverage of Pulaski Day (“Polish lessons: Pulaski Day Parade brings history, culture, community to downtown Northampton”). It was vivid reporting of the parade in both words and pictures, plus a history lesson on Polish heroes of the American Revolution, Pulaski and Kosciuszko. Interviewing the Olszaks about their involvement with the Solidarity movement and immigration to the U.S. 30 years ago is topical. “Pulaski reminds us that the fight for freedom is universal, and that the successes of freedom fighters in one place inspires those in others” were among the insightful remarks by Stephanie Kraft, the keynote speaker. Nice job, everyone.
