On Grandma's Knee: A Very Special Parade
by Diane Krowinski Drum
In 1962 President John F. Kennedy came to Buffalo, NY, to participate in the Pulaski Day Parade and to speak to the community. Diane belonged to one of the Polish National Alliance’s Youth Programs in western New York, and her band participated in the parade.
After the parade, she wanted to hear President Kennedy speak and became separated from her group. In danger of being crushed as well as lost, an African- American man rescued her and protected her until her brother located her. She did not tell anyone how scared she was or about the man who saved her.
