For over twenty-five years, Don Samull has been publishing the annual Polish American Calendar. Although, each year is different, the format always includes a historic or cultural note for each day and a Polish recipe for each month.
The 8 1/2 by 11-inch, glossy finish calendar contains homey line drawings of landmarks associated with Polish-American history like the Kosciusko House National Monument in Philadelphia and Fort Pulaski in Savannah, Ga.
Recipes include Sweet & Sour Cabbage for October, Mushroom Barley Soup for November, and Dill Pickle Soup for December. There are also interesting factoids such as the population of Poles in each state and suggestions for heritage-honoring activities.
The 2003 calendar spotlights Polish Americans. Plans for the 2004 edition include an almanac of special Polish days including holidays, fast days, name days, and famous birthdays. The calendar is in English and includes Polish Language translations for the months and days of the week.
Calendars are available for a remarkable $5.75 per copy (postage included!).
