POLONIA PARK UPDATE
Our Easter Egg Hunt 2022 was a success - even though mother nature did not do her part with a warmer day. But, we had 149 registered egg hunters & plenty of supporters. These egg hunters were jumping, skipping, hopping, singing, etc. in order to retrieve some of those +3000 eggs! It was a fun time & the park committee cannot be more proud of our numerous volunteers & outstretched arms
of our community. Your generosity & support goes above & beyond our expectations. Thank you
from the bottom of our hearts.

We are planning another fundraiser in September/October 2022. We are contemplating a steak
night & am working out the details. Like any event, we need several volunteers to help or monetary donations to offset the cost. If you are interested in volunteering, baking a dessert/ making a salad &/or contributing toward this fundraiser or future improvements, you may contact
Kris Kranski 715-630-5169 or Gayle Hintz 715-340-1857.

Your monetary donation can be mailed to: Town of Sharon Attn: Polonia Park 6704 State Hwy 66 Custer, WI 54423 with check payable to: Polonia Park.

Stay tuned as we continue our park improvement plans which includes an open/closed pavilion, playground area, landscaping, picnic tables, benches, parking lot & of course a baseball diamond.
Our floor plan is in the works & hope to share our foresight for your town park soon.

Town of Sharon, Portage County, WI

Sharon is a town in Portage County, Wisconsin.  The population as of January 1, 2020 for Town of Sharon is 2078.  This makes Sharon the county's 5th most populous community.  The unincorporated communities of Ellis, North Star and Polonia are located within the town.  Sharon is the second largest town (out of 17 towns) in Portage County in terms of geographic size, encompassing an area of approximately 41,488 acres or 64.9 miles of which 64.3 square miles of it is land and .6 square miles (or 384 acres) is water.

The Town of Sharon is located on the northern edge of Portage County and is bordered on the north by Marathon County, on the south by the Town of Stockton, on the east by the Towns of New Hope and Alban, and on the west by the Towns of Hull and Dewey.

Up until 1960, the Town of Sharon was a typical rural agriculture-based community with a steadily declining population, due mostly to the changes in agriculture economy.  Thus, the decade of the 1960's marked the end of the Town of Sharon's declining population and the beginning of a growth period that continues today.

The region was first wooded and attracted lumbermen.  When it was cleared of trees, it became farmland.  Among the pioneer settlers were Irish and German Catholics who set down roots where Ellis is today.  In 1857, the first Polish family settled in this area, creating the first Polish rural settlement in the State and the second in the United States.   Coming along with these Polish emigrants was their respect of the land, religion, family and an ethic of hard work.

Polonia was named by a Polish priest when he established a new Catholic church east of Ellis.  By the 1900's at least 10,000 people, more than one-third of the Portage County population were of Polish descent.  Polish Americans continued the legacy given by their ancestors. This legacy is also evident by the dedication of Highway 66 as the Polish Heritage Highway.
