Tłusty Czwartek – Fat Thursday 2021

Our dedicated Supportive Services staff including Tracey Comeau, our CEO and Danuta Gutkowska, our  Community Services Manager made special deliveries to our tenants of Pączki (filled doughnuts found in the Polish cuisine). Fat Thursday, or better known by Polish people as Tłusty Czwartek, is a day linked to the traditional Christian feast marking the last Thursday before Lent. On this day, for many Polish people, it is the last day for feasting including eating forbidden items such as lots of sugary food and alcohol until Easter.
