On behalf of the Polus Center, we would like to sincerely thank all of the local businesses and individuals who donated to, volunteered for, and attended this year's Clinton Polish Picnic fundraiser.
Your continued support of this event makes it possible for us to continue innovative employment and training programs for people with disabilities in Massachusetts. This includes an after-school program called the Envision Success Project (ESP), which provides career exploration, internships, and job training for young people age 14-21 who are blind or low vision. Last year we also began two new internship programs, the Employment Now Initiative and the Envision Work program, and we are now launching a Pharmacy Technician training program for young adults with disabilities from the north central MA region.
Live Polish music, traditional foods, and an exciting array of raffle prizes! Our annual fundraiser invites you to join us for a summer celebration!

Proceeds from the evening will support the Polus Center’s Envision Success Project, a career exploration and job training program for legally blind young adults age 14-21.
Based in Petersham, the Polus Center for Social & Economic Development has been supporting people with disabilities in Massachusetts since 1979,
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Sterling and Bolton Cultural Councils, local agencies which are supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
Dennis Polisky & Maestro's Men Polka Band
The Maestro's Men have been performing together since 1996. Their diverse repertoire include selections of a variety of music including: Polka, Obereks and Waltzes, Swing, Dixie, Rumba, Cha Cha, Mambo, Fox Trot, Big Band, Italian, Irish, German Oktoberfest, Line Dances.
Their CD "Strike Up The Band" 2003 was nominated for a Grammy as part of the 46'th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles California. The band was honored at this prestigious event.
This lively event brings our community together for a great afternoon of Polish fun, while raising money to support people with disabilities.
Thanks to a contribution from the Berlin and Bolton Cultural Councils and donors like you, we will be offering free admission, asking only for a donation rather than having to charge for tickets. This means, though, that our fundraiser depends on sponsorships from generous organizations, churches, and individuals like you. Proceeds from advertisements and raffle sales will pay for the band and will be our main source of fundraising revenue.
