History

The Thaddeus Kosciuszko Beneficial Society was chartered in 1907 to "promote good fellowship, aid members in sickness and distress, and help non-citizen members to qualify for citizenship papers." The club was named for a Polish patriot and Grand Duke of Lithuania who fought in the U.S Revolution, then returned to Poland to fight for its liberation from Russia. A building for the Society was erected in 1940 and expanded in 1972. The Society sponsors several athletic leagues among other community activities and is also supported by a Ladies Auxiliary. The Society celebrated its 75th anniversary in August, 1982.
