On 11 October teachers of Polish language from the oblast and some other cities of the country were invited to Hrodna for a concert. A mass dedicated to this occasion took place in Brygitski Roman Catholic Church. An official function took place in Hrodna restaurant, and then the concert took place. The event was organized by the General Consulate of Poland in Hrodna, the public organisation Polska Macierz Szkolna (PMS) and the Union of Poles headed by Anzhalika Borys.
