Michael Addicks, along with a bunch of his friends, celebrated his 50th birthday on Sunday, September 20, 2009 with a party at the Son’s of Herman hall in Brenham. Over the years, Mike has devoted a lot of his free time to preserving and honoring his Polish heritage. He has long been active in preparing the delicious Polish food served each year at the Polish Festival in Brenham and he’s been known to sing a Polish tune or two as a member of the choir at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Chappell Hill. Not surprisingly, there was a bit of a Polish theme to the party.
The talented kitchen crew served traditional czarnina, rosol and kielbasa along with a lot of other delicious soups, meats, breads and deserts. The friendly bartenders were more then happy to keep your glass filled with piwo. Vodka and home made wine were available for the more adventurous.
Non-stop entertainment was provided by Daniel Cendalski and his band with some help from Brian Marshall, Sonny Janczak, Lawrence Wisnoski, Brian Wisnoski, Jimmy Mazurkiewicz, James Mazurkiewicz, Cory McCauley, Mike Addicks, Mike Kurtin and the Winedale Froeliche Gesang-Verein group.
Below are a few photos of the fun and there is a slideshow of many more photos on page 2.
