At the heart of Grafton’s Polish community, a hand-built home

Grafton - There’s something about the tables - long, banquet-style, with chicken soup and turkey and (if the hosts were good) a bottle of whiskey in the middle. The tables seem to have worked their way into people’s collective memory of the Polish National Home (PNH) in South Grafton, an unforgettable presence in the Polish wedding celebrations held in the second story hall.

With wax scattered and the band prepared, it was time to dance. The polka and the “Oberek” of course.
