Father Sylvester Kwiatkowski is honored with DAR’s highest award given to a naturalized American citizen, the DAR Americanism Medal.
In response, State Regent Karon Jarrard received the following letter from Father Kwiatkowski:
RE: American Medal/Award
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all of the Daughters of the American Revolution for the honor of receiving this DAR award. I was deeply touched by your generosity and the beauty of the event in San Francisco. In May I was honored at the local level with another wonderful event in Grass Valley. The music prior to lunch was lovely, the color guard ceremony was impressive and the entire event was uplifting and enjoyable. It means so much to me, being a “foreigner” to this country, that I was recognized in this special way. I want to be sure that you will always have my support and prayer for your organization. You can always rely on my help should the need arise. Again, thank you and I look forward to seeing you again soon.
Fr. Sylvester Kwiatkowski Pastor
