OUR VISION STATEMENT
The vision of the Polish American Society of Northeast Florida in Jacksonville is to be the primary social organization for the Polish-American community in the region and to constantly grow its membership.
Founded in 1974, the PACS is proudly celebrating our 40th Anniversary this year. In 2013/2014, the PACS warmly opened its doors to the new Clubhouse.
The PACS has served many Poles or citizens with Polish roots in finding a home community amongst our Polish friends and family.
From its inception, the PACS has been part of the Jacksonville community, participating in the annual World of Nations Festival, and teaching Polish culture in Duval County Public Schools Multi-Cultural events. PACS also supports the local naval community, participating at the Mayport Naval Base's Cultural Festival.
In keeping up Polish traditions, the PACS hosts many monthly events ranging from Easter basket blessings, Christmas Wigilia and Oplatek, kielbasa bonfires, dances, and many activities for children. We welcome you!
