The Polish Constitution Day Observance Committee – Warszawa District is pleased to announce Eugenia Stolarczyk as our Grand Marshal for the 2012 parade.
Since her arrival in Cleveland, Eugenia Stolarczyk has been an active member of the Polish community. She married Jerzy Stolarczyk in 1957 and with a special love for Polish music and folklore, the ambitious and hardworking couple began their radio career in 1961. During her broadcast career, Eugenia interviewed many outstanding Polish artists and scholars. Along with raising three daughters, Eugenia devoted herself nearly full-time to the popularization of Polish culture and continues to do so today.
In 1982, Eugenia received the Polish Heritage Award from the Polonia Foundation for her outstanding personal service to Polonia, in 1995 the Polish Government honored her with an Order of Merit signed by Lech Walesa, and in 2006 she was honored for her 45 years of service as the producer and host of the Polish Radio Program by the Polish American Cultural Center.
For decades in Cleveland, there was hardly an event in the Polish community without the participation of Eugenia and Jerzy Stolarczyk. Sadly, Jerzy passed in 1983 and Eugenia continues the work they started together by airing their Polish program each Sunday on WERE AM. As a result of her diligent efforts, for over 25 years, Eugenia also produced a Polish program on public radio, WCPN 90.3 FM featuring interviews with distinguished guests and continues her work on both stations serving the Polish American community. Eugenia can be heard on WERE AM on Sunday 9-10AM, on WCPN 90.3 FM 9-10PM and also online at www.newstalkcleveland.com and www.wcpn.org.
