The Mayor of Roselle Gayle Smolinski, Roselle Village Board and the Sister Cities Commission, invited mayor of Bochnia Stefan Kolawinski to visit Roselle in 2013. The objective was to meet the new mayor of Bochnia and introduce him to our town. The visit lasted one week and included the Taste of Roselle weekend!
The mayor and his wife had a great time - packed with formal meetings with Roselle's Government Officials, attending Roselle Village Board meeting, as well as with entertainment to celebrate our Sister Cities Partnership.
During the visit they were treated to sightseeing tours in Chicago, Museums, a trip to Lake Geneva, a full day at the Taste of Roselle, backyard picnic at Joan and Wayne's home to celebrate the Mayor’s Birthday, and a wine tasting party at Lynfred Winery - just to name a few. We were invited to visit Bochnia this year for World Youth Day but decided to visit some other time"
