The Polish CZAT (Chat) group is an informal gathering of individuals wishing to learn the Polish language.

Most participants are of Polish heritage and are interested in connecting with their roots.

We meet on the first and third Monday’s of the month (excluding seasonal holidays) from 7pm to 9pm in the basement of the St.Michael’s Roman Catholic Church in Cooks Creek adjacent to the Museum.


We welcome and have people of all skill levels of the language ranging from beginner to conversational.


Membership to the church or residence in the area is not required.


The evenings try to follow a theme (eg: travelling, food identification) with a focus on the conversational aspect.

Be prepared to enjoy an evening of humor and friendship.

The Group was invited to participate in the Garson 2015 Choral Fest.  About 6 weeks prior to the event, we picked 4 songs and proceeded to practice for the big event.
