    – Farmer’s Wives Association are experiencing their renaissance. Polish village develops, modernises. Wives, which take care of upholding traditions, do it to a large extent – said the wife of the Polish President Agata Kornhauser-Duda in Lublin on Saturday.

    The First Lady took part in the gala of the final regional contest for the members of the Farmer’s Wives Association under the motto ‘The Thrifty Unique Woman’. 


    Agata Kornhauser-Duda recollected that the tradition of Farmer’s Wives Association reaches the 19th century. ‘It experiences its renaissance’ – emphasised.


    ‘Recently, you are the leaders of your community, animators of social life in your homelands. Thanks to the Lady’s involvement, your amazing energy, your quick and accurate decisions, you know the need of your environment. Polish village develops wonderfully’ – said Agata Kornhauser-Duda to the members of Farmer’s Wives Associations gathered in the Centre for the Meeting of Cultures in Lublin. 


    ‘The village is getting more and more modern; it is the Lady’s tremendous merit. Thanks to all of you, who take care of the tradition and culture to not disappear. Thanks to all of you, who share your knowledge and skills with youngers’ – added the First Lady.
