Councilman for the City of Warren Keith Sadowski was on the receiving end of witticism and barbs at the 14th Annual Polish Day Parade Roast on Thursday, May 23 at American Polish Century Club in Sterling Heitghts.
Keith Sadowski has been a Councilman in the City of Warren since November 2003. Warren has been his home for most of his life, with the exception of a year stint in upstate NY, where he met his wife Gina. They have been married for over 15 years.
Sadowski has a Bachelor of Science degree in Food Marketing from MSU, and an MBA in Business Administration from Wayne State.
The Polish Day Parade Committee chose Keith Sadowski as their 2013 Polish Day Parade Grand Marshal. Since 1999, a “Roast” is being held ahead of the parade, during which the Grand Marshal has to withstand sometimes a bit naughty (but healthy and entertaining) jokes and humorous tells about the “guest of honor”.
This year, Keith Sadowski’s scheduled line-up of roasters included his brothers, Dr. Michael Sadowski and Dr. Rich Sadowski, former Warren City Council Member Mindy Moore, WDIV Local 4 Reporter Mara MacDonald and Keith’s long-time friend and campaign manager Mark Allen, as well as “Mystery Roaster” which happened to be Keith’s mother.
The Master of Ceremonies for the evening was popular Radio Personality for Today 105. 1 Lisa Jesswein.
The event was attended by hundreds of Keith Sadowski’s friends, colleagues and family members.
Proceeds from the roast will benefit the annual Polish Day Parade held on Labor Day in Hamtramck. The parade is sponsored by the Polish American Congress Michigan Division.
In a special address published in the occasional program book for “The Roast”, the Chairman of the Polish Day Parade Committee, Hon. Judge John Chmura writes: “The Polish Day Parade, with dancers wearing brightly colored costumes, polka bands, singers, and veterans groups, brings back all those wonderful Hamtramck memories. The Polish Day Parade is Hamtramck”.
The Polish Day Parade Committee includes: Henry Anonick, Wally Banka, Terry A. Bogusz, John M. Chmura, Ann Felczak, Michelle Jiompkowski, Victor Jiompkowski, Erica Keine, Ron Keine, Kathy Kristy, Barbara Lemecha, Karen Majewski, Edward Mandell, Jerrold Marsh, Barbara Martin, Paul Odrobina, Dennis Orlowski, Christopher Ozog, Thomas Schemanski, Jim Surowiec, Mariusz Szajnert, Stella Szczesny, Barbara Toboy and Mary Ellen Tyszka.
