Witamy do nas!

Or, as they say in “correct” Polish, “Witaj!”

My name is Joe Hughes. I live in Springfield, Missouri. Despite the Welsh-sounding last name, I am half Kashubian Polish, the son of ex-Winonans Laura Mae Bambenek and Raymond F. Hughes. Father Paul made me an offer I couldn’t refuse, and now I am the (drumroll) chief blogger for the Polish Cultural Institute. I have a lot of stories and information that I’m looking forward to sharing here. But if you just can’t wait, please feel free to visit my original Kashubian-American blog, “Smiles in Boxes.”

About Józef Jan Hughes

Native of Oak Creek, WI now living (26 years and counting), in Springfield, MO. Son of ex-Winonans Raymond and Laura (Bambenek) Hughes; half Kashubian Polish on Mom's side. In honor of my grandfather Jan Karol "John C." Bambenek (1891-1966) I'm trying out the Polish spelling for a while.
