Feb 12 | Florida Bakery Paczki Day |
In Poland, paczki (pronounced "ponchki") are eaten especially on Fat Thursday, the last Thursday prior to Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. The traditional reason for making paczki was to use up all the lard, sugar, eggs and fruit in the house, because their consumption was forbidden by Catholic fasting practices during Lent. In North America, particularly the large Polish community of Chicago, Detroit, and other large cities across the Midwest, Paczki Day is celebrated annually by immigrants and locals alike. The date of this observance merges with that of pre-Lenten traditions of other immigrants (e.g., Pancake Day, Mardi Gras) on Fat Tuesday. With its sizable Polish population, Chicagoans celebrate the festival on both Fat Thursday and Fat Tuesday, and also often eat paczki on Casimir Pulaski Day. In Buffalo, Toledo, Cleveland, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Milwaukee, South Bend, and Windsor, PaczkiDay is celebrated on Fat Tuesday. The Pączki Day celebrations in some areas are even larger than many celebrations for St. Patrick's Day. In Hamtramck, Michigan, an enclave of Detroit, there is an annual Paczki Day (Shrove Tuesday) Parade, which has gained a devoted following. In the Metro Detroit area, it is so widespread throughout the region that many bakeries have line-ups for paczki on Paczki Day.

WARWICK — Mardi Gras, which is French for Fat Tuesday, is the day before Ash Wednesday and it's traditionally a time to celebrate and eat well before the season of Lent. Although celebrated throughout the world, most people in the United States associate the event with the City of New Orleans. But next Tuesday evening, Feb. 17, from 6 p.m. to midnight, the Village of Warwick will play host to its third annual 'Mardi Gras for a Cause.' Although there will be bangles, beads and prizes, the lavish costumes and parades may not be part of this event. But it will be a celebration none the less. And once again, the Warwick Mardi Gras will be a fund raiser for Back Pack Snack Attack. The non-profit organization provides nutritional snacks to more than 300 needy school children each week of the school year. The program is run entirely by a group of volunteers and supported by donations and fund raising.
Three years ago, Mardi Gras for a Cause was dreamed up by a group of local musicians from Warwick who wanted to be able to celebrate the arts and the community. The successful event was designed to provide a unique and memorable opportunity for people of all ages to come together and enjoy local live music along with food and drink specials while giving back to the community. "We are bringing the Rio and New Orleans Fat Tuesday Celebration to the Village of Warwick," said Shirley Puett, director of Back Pack Snack Attack. "Everyone is invited and guests are encouraged to visit several locations during the evening." Each restaurant will host musicians who will play for free beginning at 7 p.m. Food and drink specials begin at 6 p.m. Owners of the participating restaurants have agreed to allocate a percentage of that night's earnings to Back Pack Snack Attack. - See more at:
Feb 22 | Sustainable Warwick Presents | 1:30PM
n addition to our Farmer’s Forum at the Library at 1:30, there is now also an earlier event — see below for details — that will bring Josh Fox and Zephyr Teachout and their “Solutions Grassroots Tour” to OCCC in Middletown at 11. With all the concern about … — The massive gas-fired power plant in Wawayanda — The Minisink Compressor Station — The Pilgrim Pipeline … … this is an opportunity to learn, to link up, and to look for effective strategies with other concerned residents of the region. While this is not an official SW event, it represents a special opportunity, one that will be of great interest to many SW members. I know this will make for a very busy Sunday, but I am hoping that many of you will be able to attend both events.
