Bakalar Dinner 2009

   

               

   

Bakalar
St. Jerome ‘s parish hall was the scene of Club Poljica’s Annual Bakalar Dinner on Saturday evening, March 7, 2009. Their tradition of organizing the Bakalar fish dinner began shortly after the Club was founded in 1946. This evening, the best fish in Chicago and the best bakalar in America was served. Exceptional cooks – the Brothers Soldo – made this event memorable.
     Croatians and their friends, oftentimes well-known public figures from Chicago, attended. With Croatian tamburica, representatives from Croatian parishes, clubs and organizations, this was a tradition-filled and great event.  This year was special because after many years of service, one generation of Club Poljica leaders handed over the baton of tradition to a younger generation:  Matt Vulich, Louis Scalise, Julie Grzetich O’Connor, Mary Rodich and Maryann Kovačević. With youthful enthusiasm and creativity as well as with experienced advice, they proved that Club Poljica will stay strong. The entire assembly joined the new leaders in recognizing with awards and heart-felt applause the leaders emeritus: Ante Vulić, Eleonor Grzetich, Michael Bozich late Augustin Rodich and others.
     How wonderful it is to know that we have a tradition refreshed with new strengths and talents that will continue to live for many years.

Dvorana Sv. Jeronima u Chicagu ugostila je u subotu 7. ožujka 2009. klub  Poljica koji u ovoj hrvatskoj zajednici postoji još od 1946. godine. Od tada Poljičani u Chicagu imaju i svoju poznatu večer pod nazivom “Bakalar večera” . Večer kada se poslužuje najbolja riba u Chicagu i najbolji bakalar u Americi. Vrsni kuhari braća Soldo i ove godine učini su događaj za pamćenje.

Hrvati i njihovi prijatelji, često poznate i javne osobe iz grada Chicaga, sudjeluju na ovoj večeri. Uz hrvatsku tamburicu, predstavnike svih hrvatskih župa, udruga i zajednice, ova večer ima vrlo bogatu i poštovanu tradiciju. Ove godine nakon dugog niza godina, mladi članovi kluba Poljica, preuzeli su vođenje kluba: Matt Vulić, Louis Scalise, Julie Grzetić O’Connor,  Mary Rodić i Maryann Kovačević. Oni, s puno entuzijazma pokazuju kako će ovaj klub u drugoj polovici stoljeća svoga postojanja ostati jak i čvrst. S prigodnim nagradama i priznanjima klub se oprostio do dosadašnjeg vodstva, Ante Vulića, Eleonor Gržetić, Michaela Božića, pok.
