Event Details

Annual Polish Luau

Oshkosh Chapter #264 OES began their Annual Polish Luau around 25 years ago. It is held the 3rd Wednesday in August every year.

The Annual Polish Luau is open to the public. It offers a great time of fellowship and renewing old friendships! The food is unbeatable!

The meal consists of what is called by some a "Cream Can Supper". The makin's are put into cream or milk cans that have been specially adapted for this purpose. Bolts are put into the lids in just the right way to make the cream can act as a pressure cooker. As the heat and pressure build up, the lid rocks just like the shuttle-cock on the pressure cooker. The contents (potatoes, carrots, onions, cabbage, corn on the cob and sausage) are layered into the can, then cooked for an hour or so. The results are a mouthwatering dish that is served with dinner rolls, sour cream cucumbers, vinegar cucumbers, brownies, bar cookies, and cakes and beverage.
