Why are meetings and official gatherings conducted in English?
The Club was started in 1981 by Poles and children of Polish immigrants. Most spoke Polish but there were some that did not. To make sure everyone knew what's going on, English become the business language for meetings and official gatherings. Today, a lot of members speak Polish but there is a small percantage that does not. Again, to make sure everyone knows what's going on, English is the official language. Polish is used almost exclusively when only Polish speakers get together.
