XIXth Annual Family Picnic of the Polish American Medical Society took place Sunday August 17th at beautiful“ Jack and Lidia Resort” also known as “Honorary Polish Village” in Lake Villa, IL, on the shores of Deep Lake in far north suburbs.

Jack and Lydia are also running a restaurant called “Reflexions“ which is part of this large recreational complex.

In spite of a long distance from Chicago, we had very good turnout , over 60 members with families and many devoted sympathizers…

The weather was sunny, the mood was exciting, and the location was great, but the people in attendance made our annual PAMS picnic a wonderful success!

The picnic was skillfully organized by Dr. Beata Danek (PAMS board member),

Both old and new faces made appearances at the picnic. We all reminisced about the good times, listened to great live music, provided by Dr.Tucci, Dr. Niekrasz and his charming wife Iwona Niekrasz, entertaining us with some smooth, yet up-beat jazz that screamed dance! If only there had been a dance floor, then the party might have lasted into the early morning!

We also feasted on delicious grilled polish food provided by the resort owners, and later cooked kielbasa by the fire pit.

Some of us mustered up the courage to take out one of the paddle boats on the lake, and then proceeded to bask in the sun, some swam, some played beach volleyball and there was a competition going on in beanie bags toss.

The relaxation and fun lasted well into the evening hours.

We are already planning for the next year, in the same place and can only hope that this enticing description of the picnic will attract more of you in the future.
