PHOTOS: Dingell Celebrates Paczki Day

Washington, February 25, 2020

DEARBORN, MI – Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) celebrated Paczki Day, a Polish celebration before the fasting of Lent, by bringing the traditional polish donuts to friends in Michigan. The delivering of Paczki is a tradition started by Dingell’s late husband John Dingell while he served in the same seat.

Photos from Dingell delivering Paczki are available for download here.

“Traditions matter. Celebrating John’s heritage on Paczki Day with friends each year has been a reminder to the community that our heritage is important. Days like this keep us connected and tie generations together,” said Dingell. “This day means more to me than ever. It is important to me to celebrate John by carrying on this tradition with our friends, and to focus on what unites us rather than what divides us. Happy Paczki Day, and in his memory – don’t think about any calories.”
