Hello, everyone! It’s been quite a summer, but slowly we’re getting this website in better shape. We’re so excited to showcase our website at our annual ceremony.
I did want to quickly share some unfortunate news, for those that haven’t heard, and I want to apologize that this news is coming a few weeks after the fact. But we wanted to let everyone know that Leo Piitz passed away a few weeks ago. The link for his obituary can be found here.
We weren’t made aware of this until this past week, so we do apologize for not getting this information out in a timely manner. When we hear of any of our inductees passing, we will certainly do our best to get this information posted here so that you are all aware.
Welcome to the Sokol Omaha Polka Hall of Fame website. We are so excited to have this up and running. Please check back soon for more details.
