Documentary to Air on MPTV February 3, 2014
The monument has now been fully restored, returned to the park and rededicated along with new landscaping, pavement, lighting and a flagpole at the site. Please visit sometime soon. But there is more exciting news........
Milwaukee’s public television station MPTV, under the direction of Executive Producer Raul Galvan, has produced the remarkable story of General Kosciuszko and the monument restoration project. The 30 minute documentary will air on Channel 10 in Milwaukee and across the state on February 3, 2014 at 9:00 p.m.
NOTE: PREVIEW RESCHEDULED TO THURSDAY JANUARY 30TH DUE TO BITTER COLD
MPTV will host a preview party at the Polish Center of Wisconsin 6941 S. 68th Street, Franklin (just north of Rawson Avenue) on Thursday evening January 30, 2014. The evening will commence at 6:00 p.m. with a social hour featuring complimentary appetizers and a cash bar. Several people will talk about the restoration effort and the documentary at 7:30 p.m. The entire documentary will be shown at 7:40 p.m. As an added attraction, the Polish Center is hosting a traveling art exhibit that same evening. The event is free and open to the public.
