GRAND RAPIDS MI
2016 QUEEN & COURT:
QUEEN - ANDIE CRAPSEY (LADDIES)
COURT - NATALIE KLOCKO (POLISH FALCONS)
Hello! My name is Natalie Klocko and I am your 2016-17 Pulaski Court. I am the daughter of Stan and Betsy Klocko and a graduate of Coopersville High School and GVSU. Pulaski days has always been an important weekend to my family and me. My dad was a longtime member of the Gerry Kaminski's Merry Makers and i spent my childhood listening to polka music and enjoying the atmosphere, food and sense of community the Pulaski Days provides. I am a middle school teacher and have been a part of the Spanish Immersion program at Forest hills Northern for the past three years. I am also a coach ad a member of the laddies auxiliary at the Polish falcons. I am thrilled that I get to spend this next year representing our Polish community. I look forward to a year of adventures and new friends with our Pulaski queen Andie Crapsey. Thank you for having me and I look forward to seeing you all!
Hello! My name is Andie, and I am your 2016-2017 Grand Rapids Pulaski Queen. I am beyond excited to represent the Polish community in the greater Grand Rapids area. St. Ladislaus Aid Society is my sponsor for the year, and I am a proud westsider. A little bit about me: I am soon going to be a Registered Nurse, I love being with family and friends, and I love being at the cottage in the summer. I also love to cook some classic Polish recipes, and of course eat them afterward. I am looking forward to making many new friends this year, and creating an inseparable bond between Natalie, the 2016-2017 Pulaski Court member and I!
