THE PULASKI CLUB

WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA

(Founded 1779)


On October 25, 2004, members and their guests celebrated the 225th anniversary of the Pulaski Club with a dinner meeting and visit by Governor Patrick Henry. A 1928 silhouette of a Pulaski meeting on "The Benches" was featured on the cover of the program for the evening and is shown above.

The festivities were held at "A Chef's Kitchen" in Williamsburg, where the food and fellowship were excellent. After the cocktail hour, Governor Patrick Henry set the tone with his opening remarks, reminding all of Count Pulaski's visit to Williamsburg and recalling that although both Henry and Pulaski received their first horse at age 8, the Count had far greater success in the saddle than the Governor. As is the tradition at the annual meeting, all glasses were raised in honor of Count Pulaski and all the soldiers who have fought and are fighting for the honor and principles of the United States of America.

Chef John Gonzales provided a delicious meal with his characteristic showmanship, and he added some recollections of growing up in Williamsburg, a topic dear to the hearts of the Pulaski Club members and their guests. A good time was had by all.
