On July 26th, Gloria Dei Estates celebrated a centennial event! The community itself was not turning 100, however one of its residents was doing just that. Stanley Nanczuk, who graduated from Roman Catholic High School and who fought at Iwo Jima, celebrated 100 years on this Earth.
The event was highlighted by speeches and presentation of recognition certificates from:
- Thomas F. Johnston, President of Roman Alumni
- John P. Sabatina, Jr. State Representative 174th District
- Brian J. O’Neill, Minority Leader 10th District Council Member
- Ed Neilson’s Office of the House of Representatives
Birthday cake and ice cream was enjoyed by all attending the birthday celebration along with a special performance by the members of the Polish American String Band.
