In between the performances was a program to celebrate the 220th anniversary of the Polish Constitution. The Polish Constitution of May 3, 1791 was the first constitution to follow the 1788 ratification of the United States Constitution. May 3 was restored as an official Polish holiday in April 1990, after the fall of communism.

The program began with a welcome by Francis A. Rutkowski, First Vice President, Polish American Congress, Ohio Division.
