APC Art Talk
Peter DeWeerdt, accomplished painter and Polish Club member, gave a talk to the club about Polish art at the end of February. It began with a general overview of Polish art and its effect on the culture, and then focused on Jan Matejko, the most famous Polish Painter of the 19th century. Matejko (1838- 1893) lived his whole life in Krakow and specialized in historical paintings, most notably about political and military events, making his work extremely important for Polish culture.

APC Health Talk and Potluck
Elaine, our latest chief official, has been know as “President of the Plate” describing what goes on it and what goes into your mouth.
She’ll tell you the difference between Budweiser and blood sugar.
Actually, there isn’t much difference at all. Truth about food-plant to animals to chemicals—there’s a lot of information to know about yourself. And what you can do about it if you’ve gotten too friendly with food for too long. A lady with lots of knowledge and a great smile.
