Greetings to the participants of NBA Polish Heritage Night

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Compatriots!

 

From Warsaw, the capital of Poland, I extend my greetings to all people gathered in Washington, D.C., in a white and red Capital One Arena. My warm greetings go out to the Polonia community, to sport fans of Polish descent and to our American friends. I wish to cordially thank Marcin Gortat who, aided by his foundation, for the seventh time running is organizing Polish Heritage Night. This is a fantastic initiative that I wholeheartedly support.

 

My Dear Friends!

 

Poland is now celebrating the 100th anniversary of regaining independence. We vividly recall that back in 1918, the American People proved to be our true friends, and President Woodrow Wilson demanded that Polish state be created in his Plan for Peace “The Fourteen Points”. This helped us to succeed in our struggle for freedom. Nowadays Poland and the United States stand shoulder to shoulder to guard our country’s security and that of the North Atlantic Alliance.

 

My warmest greetings go out to all the participants of today’s event, and  especially to our guests of honor: our servicemen, the veterans of the missions in Iraq and Afghanistan:  SWO Piotr Maciejewski, and MCpl Michał Paćko.

 

I wish you all a lot of fun and many memorable moments. Good luck!

I wish to cordially thank Marcin Gortat who, aided by his foundation, for the seventh time running is organizing Polish Heritage Night. This is a fantastic initiative that I wholeheartedly support.
