Broadview Heights - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) recently attended the Cleveland Society of Poles  Awards Banquet, where she honored a local resident for receiving the Polish-American Heritage Award.  

The Cleveland Society of Poles awarded Joseph Lecznar with the 2014 Polish-American Heritage Award, the "Good Joe".  Lecznar is a lifelong resident of the Cleveland area and currently resides in Seven Hills with his wife, Caryl. Lecznar has been a member of the Alliance of Poles (a division of the Polish Roman Catholic Union) since he was born and became a director in 1986. In 1999, he received the Meritorious Service Award, the Alliance’s highest award. He is currently serving as the president of the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America Society #2109.

“I am pleased to have been able to honor Joseph Lecznar,” said Rep Anielski. “He is an outstanding member of both the Polish and Seven Hills communities with his unselfish service to his community and profession with responsible citizenship."

The Cleveland Society of Poles is a nonprofit fraternal order of men and women of Polish descent who are engaged in the professions, business, and the arts. Since its founding in 1923, the Society’s main objective has been to preserve and nurture Polish heritage, traditions, and culture, and to promote the principles of American citizenship.
