Ron Witkiewicz Resignation as VP 

It was a complete surprise to all Committee Members this month when Ron Witkiewicz announced he was resigning his role as VP of Polka Lovers Club due to health, etc. Ron wrote a resignation letter in which he included a beautiful thank you note to all the members for the years he enjoyed being VP. “Many memories and friends”, he said. Ron was recognized at the September Dance. He and his wife, Loretta, will continue attending the Polka dances. Ron will be missed as VP by many.
