On Julne 25, 2016 at Deer Creek Club in Ladue,  Saint Louis Polonia, Inc.  hosted a recognition dinner honoring Mr. Robert V. Ogrodnik on the occasion of his retirement.   Mr. Ogrodnik has held the position of Honorary Consul for the Republic of Poland for past 14 years.  Those of us who had an opportunity to work with Bob are well aware of his talents, dedication and contributions to Polish community in the St. Louis area; especially his ability to work with various groups, congregations and associations. Over the years, we all greatly benefited from Bob’s genuine dedication to Polish community, his role in preservation of our heritage and promotion of arts and culture.  In this spirit, the recognition dinner will be held on June 25, 2016 at Deer Creek Country Club.  This event was also unique opportunity to meet and network with leadership of various Polish organizations active in our community.
The event was attended by over 90 guests.
