the polish town civic association
There is truly something special about Polish Town.
You can see it walking the streets, stopping into the markets, talking with the residents.
It's said that everyone in Riverhead is Polish,
and with one in four residents claiming Polish heritage - that may be close to the truth.
The truth is that Riverhead is a very special place to live because
the polish immigrants who made their way to the new world and settled here to live were very special.
The Polish Civic Association helps to ensure their pride and customs live on in our community!
In 1975, while Riverhead Town was planning celebrations for their Bicentennial, a committee was formed to represent Polish Town. It was from that committee that the Polish Town Civic Association was born with a mission to promote the history of Polish Town, renew its community spirit and turn it into an ethnic showplace.
Our Philanthropies include, to name a few, beautification of the Polish Town streets,
scholarships and baskets for the needy.
is something very special about the members of the Polish Town Civic Association.
That something special is the spirit that gave life to Polish Town USA
and all the bright tomorrows that lie ahead. The spirit lives in
the hearts of the people who have made and continue to make Polish Town
USA a very special lace. It motivates their lives. They are
a SPECIAL BREED who devote endless hours of their time. The re-birth
of Polish Town has brought out the best in people. The dream began
in 1975 and the dreamers are still here - working to make Riverhead's Polish
Town a very special place.

in 1975, the Polish Town Civic Association grew out of the need
for the community to be able to represent and promote itself within
Suffolk County, Long Island, New York, the nation, and the world. At
the dawn of a new millennium, the organization
voted to include a policy change from one presidency to three
Executive Presidents for a two year term. This was in effect
from 2001-2002. In 2003, the organization returned to the current
