Flowers for Tadeusz Kościuszko!!!
We invite you to the celebration of the 206th anniversary of the death of General Tadeusz Kościuszko and the first anniversary of hanging commemorative plaques dedicated to this hero of two nations, Polish and American, on the bridge bearing his name – the Kościuszko Bridge connecting Greenpoint with Maspeth.
Another campaign of the Dobra Polska Szkoła Foundation is starting – “Flowers for Tadeusz Kościuszko”. Approximately 130,000 people cross this youngest and most modern bridge in New York every day. cars. It was in such a prominent place that last year seven beautiful commemorative plaques commemorating General Tadeusz Kościuszko were hung. They contain not only the most beautiful image of Tadeusz Kościuszko in the world, but also the most important information about his unique achievements and importance for the creation of the United States. For many Americans who do not have a chance to learn – either at school or in other public places – about who General Tadeusz Kościuszko was, these boards are a great source of this information. In addition, they are located in a place where flowers and wreaths can be placed. So we invite all Poles, Americans and representatives of other nations living in New York, families, teachers with students, Polish organizations and tourists to lay flowers under the plaques of Tadeusz Kościuszko on the Kosciuszko Bridge, not only on the anniversary of his birth or death, but every day. Let’s show Americans that we remember him and honor him as one of the most important sons of Poland. Let’s meet at the beautiful “Flowers for Tadeusz Kościuszko” ceremony enriched with honorary guests and representatives of Polish schools. Let’s also go there for a walk with family, friends or for a bike ride. Let’s lay flowers for our hero so that he is not – not even one day a year – lonely and without Polish national colors. We also invite you to take photos and present them on social media. We invite you to the inauguration of the “Flowers for Tadeusz Kościuszko” campaign on Sunday, October 15, at 12 noon.
