St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Anderson, Texas held their annual homecoming bazaar on Sunday, October 14, 2007. Polish Texans with roots in Grimes county came in from all over to celebrate their Polish roots. There was a large crowd this year and the weather was great.
A barbecue beef and sausage dinner was served beginning at 11:00 am along with all of the fixings, home made deserts and ice tea. As usual, the dinner was delicious.
There were Grocery, Cake, Fruit, Sausage, Kolache and other booths for the adults as well as activities for the kids. The traditional 'Babusha's Porch' booth had plenty of crafts and decorative items.
Tommy Szymczak and his crew had so many auction items that they were forced to start the live auction 30 minutes earlier then usual. The bidding was fast and furious and the live auction was a big money maker for the church.
Dancing on the wooden platform under the tent is a tradition at St. Stanaslaus and there were plenty of dancers of all ages. The music was provided by Brian Marshall, Phil Berger and Sonny Janczak with help from Jimmy Mazurkiewicz, Marion Seigal, Brian Wisnoski and others. The traditional Polish songs and music is always a hit with the Anderson crowd.
