Karol Wojtyla (JPII) Kayak


The red and white kayak was built by Edward Borowicz in the 1970’s,  and was used by the Polish Boy Scouts. While visiting the Orchard Lake Schools and Seminary during September of 1976, the then Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, used the kayak on Orchard Lake.

After thirty-four years, the kayak is being donated to the Polish Mission at Orchard Lake by Danuta Borowicz, Barbara Borowicz-Zaydel and the Borowicz family members as a memento of the Cardinal’s visit and excursion on the lake.
