2022 Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony

Christmas Cheer Is Here at the PNA!

On November 21, 2022, the Polish National Alliance officially rang in the holiday season with its annual Tree Lighting Ceremony hosted at the home office along with the Edgebrook Sauganash Chamber of Commerce.

President Frank Spula opened the ceremony, followed by remarks by President of the Edgebrook Sauganash Chamber of Commerce Barbara Eastman, Alderman of the 39th Ward Samantha Nugent, and SSA Al Klairmont. Speakers emphasized how such events foster unity and loyalty in the community. Alderman Nugent had the honor of lighting up the PNA’s displays. The cold November breeze felt nonexistent as the community presence warmed everyone’s hearts, and the colorful lights created a magical atmosphere. Afterward, attendees gathered to enjoy sweet treats and warm beverages.

We thank everybody who joined us tonight and made this moment so special, and we extend additional thanks to the Edgebrook Sauganash Chamber of Commerce for this joint effort. We also thank our wonderful staff who worked tirelessly to ensure all displays have been installed safely and artfully.
