BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - After 113 years, they’ve danced the last polka at Pulaski Hall in Bay City.

The hall was a social club for the Polish community in Bay City, but the group that runs it can’t afford to keep the doors open. Hundreds of people turned out Thursday night for a final toast - and a little polka.

They flipped through photo albums and reminisced about bowling in the lower level, bingo games, summer picnics and softball teams. The bowling alley closed in 1979.

Tom Toporski tells The Bay City Times (https://bit.ly/1JWrDPy ) that he regularly played cards and drank beer at Pulaski Hall. When his wife asked him where he’d been, he told her, “choir practice.”
