ON JUNE 29 AT 6PM 

2019 QUEEN & COURT

My name is Paige Rubleski and I am your 2019-2020 Pulaski Days Queen! I am a Certified Nurse Aid and Nursing Technician. I work to serve our communities at Spectrum Health Blodgett Hospital and the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. I am a member of St. George's Hall and I am also a nursing student at GRCC. I have a passion for people and I cannot wait to get involved and give back to our communities with your help this year. I am proud of my Polish Heritage and my family's history here on the West Side of Grand Rapids. I come from a big polish family that loves kielbasa and a good beer! I am grateful for our beautiful polish community and the opportunity to serve as your Queen during Pulaski Days and other events throughout this year. I am excited to meet all of you and share the best food, drinks, and fun along side my Court Ashley VanderMeulen during Pulaski days!
My name is Ashley VanderMeulen and I am you 2019-2020 Pulaski Court Member. I am currently 19 years old and am starting my sophomore year of college at Grand Rapids Community College. I plan to transfer to a bigger university this winter and study special education. I work at Bio Life Plasma Center as a PCT, and I even spend my days there talking about my Polish heritage!
Growing up in a large Polish family Pulaski days was an holiday that’s could never be missed. I still remember being a young kid and trying to learn to polka and cook the amazing food I was about to eat, but instead I ended up staring in amazement at the amount of joy that was on everyone’s faces around me. Our Polish community continues to amaze me with welcoming and enjoyable comfort of a big extended family. I can easily say there is no place I would rather spend my Pulaski days than on the Westside!
I am so honored and grateful to be chosen for this experience and cannot wait to share it with all of you! I’m looking forward to a amazing weekend with everyone and of course our amazing queen, Paige Rubleski.
