On the initiative of Katarzyna Szyper, member of our Association, Alumni from the Silesia Voivodeship met in a charming restaurant Chata z Zalipia on Friday, February 22, 2019. It was a great opportunity to get to know each other and talk about experiences related to staying in the USA. Despite the scholarship trip in various years (although three of those present at the meeting were there in 2004), in different places, and under different programs, the Alumni found common topics and interests easily. We encourage all members of the Association to foster contacts, which are a valuable source of knowledge and opportunity to cooperate on many levels. We also hope that next time, the Silesian Alumni will meet in a larger group.
