(1.17.19) Coinciding with the 2018 centennial of Poland's independence and also marking 30 years since the collapse of communism in Poland, "Coming Together" has announced that it will celebrate Polish culture in 2019.

Celebrating its own 10th anniversary, Coming Together brings life to the cultural diversity of Niles Township by celebrating a different culture every year.
