3 February, 2013 President s Corner Dear Members: As we look ahead to the New Year, we look with optimism that it will be a better year for everyone both personally and professionally. We need to be optimistic and meet every challenge head on so that 2014 will be indeed a better year. This past year was a challenging one for many of us including the Polish National Alliance. We amended the by-laws of the Polish National Alliance as required by the regulators to be compliant with their rules and laws. At the end of October, the amended by-laws were approved by the State of Illinois Department of Insurance. One major change was that our Board of Directors would comprise of two tiers, one Fraternal Board consisting of ten Directors and the Business Board consisting of five Directors and the Executive Officers for a total of ten members. This is in compliance with the recommendations of the Department of Insurance. This change took effect January 1st of this year. As we move forward, there will be more changes implemented as new guidelines and laws are approved by State and Federal agencies. In the last issue of Zgoda, the amendments were printed; I hope you had the opportunity to review them. For your convenience, they are posted on our website at Over the last few years, economic growth has been marginal; interest rates are the lowest in history from savings accounts to mortgage rates. The Polish National Alliance has been cutting its expenses for the last several years observing the diminishing rates of return on our investments. We have been very proactive as an organization. There have been reductions in every category within the administration of the Alliance. There have been staff reductions, as well as a decrease in Commissioners and Directors expenses. There were also salary diminutions for the Officers. Subsidies and donations have also been reduced. Outside travel has also been kept to a minimum. The reason for reducing expenses is to make ce rtain that we are profitable. We realize no one wants to have their budget or salaries reduced. However, our concern is to make certain our members benefits are safeguarded. We have come to a crossroad that requires us to make necessary changes and improvements for us to be competitive as well as guaranteeing that the PNA continues its long history. The Polish National Alliance will be celebrating 134 years of existence this year. We are looking for motivated sales representatives to sell our financial products and expand our fraternal family. We offer very competitive insurance products as well as attractive commissions and renewals. Please call me directly at if you are interested. Since we are in the beginning of the year, I encourage you to review the insurance protection you have with the Polish National Alliance. Over the years, inflation has eroded the value of protection. This is a good time to increase the amount of your life insurance coverage. If you are not a member of the Polish National Alliance, I invite you to join. Best wishes to you and your families for a healthy, successful year filled with love and harmony. Frank J. Spula, FLMI President 3
4 From the Editor Dear Members, I wish you a happy and healthy New Year, and hope you will be able to accomplish everything you did not have a chance to do last year. Just remember be realistic in your expectations and resolutions and I am sure everything will turn out exactly the way you want. As of this year, Zgoda will be printed quarterly due to rising costs of printing and mailing. We will, however, have 64 pages printed on a high quality paper. Perhaps one day, we will be able to change back to a monthly publication to keep our readers up to date with all that is happening within the PNA as well as the rest of the world. At the same time we anticipate that more and more of you will opt for the paperless, internet copy. We are exploring the possibility of having Zgoda online, not in the pdf format, but as a web page, with the traditional printed copies still available for those who chose this option. Thank you to all of you that submitted articles and pictures. As always, please send your photographs as jpg (at least 300 DPI) attachments. I cannot use any pictures printed on regular paper or pasted in word document. Our graphic designer, Ewa Wisniewska spends a lot of time on enhancing and cleaning some of the photos. I hope you will enjoy this issue and take advantage of some of the many PNA events that will be taking place in the next few months. We have trips, contests and scholarship offers... I am very proud of being part of the organization that has so much to offer to its members. We are 134 years old but still so young and vibrant. Many of you asked for more history articles. I trust you will be satisfied this time and promise more in the future. Looking for materials and subjects, I learn so much myself. Until recently, I did not know much about Patron Saint of Poland, St. John of Dukla. I am certainly very impressed by Polish Americans joining the foreign armies and giving their lives for Poland, regaining its rightful place on the map of Europe. Please enjoy this issue of Zgoda and send me your articles and suggestions. Wishing you a great rest of the winter season. Yours truly, Alicja Kuklińska Year of John of Dukla Patron Saint of Poland and Lithuania John of Dukla (also called Jan of Dukla ) is a saint in the Roman Catholic Church. He is one of the patron saints of Poland and Lithuania. John was born in Dukla, Poland, in St. John of Dukla died in 1484 in Lwów (then Poland). He joined the Friars Minor Conventual, a religious order whose members strictly adhered to their rule of poverty and obedience. Though he went blind later in age he was able to prepare sermons with the help of an aide. His preaching was credited with bringing people back to the Church in his province. Soon after his death, there was an immediate veneration at his tomb and several miracles were attributed to him. On June 10, 1997, he was canonized by Pope John Paul II in a mass at Krosno, Poland, before approximately one million people. 4

17 Mikołajki Party at Lodge 700 On Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 2:00 pm, PNA Lodge 700 hosted their annual Mikołajki Christmas party at the Szarotka residence in Los Angeles. The event was well attended by their youngest members. The children were able to experience an interesting event prepared by the board members and valuable volunteers. Special treats were served. The children learned about many polish Christmas traditions like: Mikołajki Christmas tree, Jasełka, Nativity, Wigilia, Kolędy, sharing the holy wafer Opłatek, giving presents. Special thanks go to Róża Kostrzewska -Yoder and Edward Hoffman who prepared a rich, interesting and diverse program presented by the Krakusy dance group and choir. During the event children learned and participated in singing Polish and American Christmas carols. They enjoyed the dances presented by the Krakusy dance ensemble. They were encouraged to participate learning these traditional polish dances. The highlight of this event was Świety Mikołaj (St. Nicholas). The children listened to stories about this traditional figure. The feast of St. Nicholas is December 6th. On this day, Św. Mikołaj would visit the homes of people in the village, dressed in his bishop s robes. When Św. Mikołaj visited the children, he gave them a gift for being good and to remind them of the gifts given to the Christ Child by the Three Kings. Celebrating the feast day of Św. Mikołaj remains popular with Polish people living all over the world. Many of the Christmas customs celebrated today are a result of the early visits made by St. Nicholas. For example, the candy cane given during the Christmas holidays is a simple treat symbolizing the shepherd s staff, which is carried by a bishop. Św. Mikołaj is called the Father of Christmas, known to children in America as Santa Claus. The children were surprised when the much anticipated Świety Mikołaj arrived to this event. They were able to talk with him and receive many gifts from him.they had an opportunity to have a group photo as well. The Mikołajki party was a success.

18 Fraternal News Zimowy Koncert Teatru Pieśni i Tańca Wici Zimowy koncert Teatru Pieśni i Tańca Wici był rewią talentu, młodości, umiejętności i bajecznie kolorowych strojów. 350 tancerzy występujących w koncercie zaprezentowało liczne polskie oraz amerykańskie tańce ludowe i narodowe połączone ze śpiewem kolęd. W salach bankietowych Białego Orła, gdzie na co dzień odbywają się próby zespołu przy wspólnej kolacji zebrało się ponad siedemset osób, aby podziwiać popisy taneczne i wokalne w choreografii Magdaleny Solarz, Anny Strojnej, Kingi Podstawskiej wspieranych przez orkiestrę i akompaniatorów zespołu. Na największy aplauz jak zwykle mogli liczyć najmłodsi tancerze, ale wszystkie pozostałe grupy wiekowe zaprezentowały się równie okazale zbierając rzęsiste oklaski za swoje tańce. W imieniu Związku Narodowego Polskiego, który sprawuje pieczę nad zespołem, podziękowania i życzenia kolejnych sukcesów złożył prezes Franciszek Spula. Po zakończeniu tanecznej części wieczoru, jego uczestników odwiedził mikołaj z wielkim workiem prezentów, którymi zostali obdarowani zarówno tancerze, jak i wszystkie dzieci obecne na sali. Koncert zakończyła dyskoteka. Wici zostały założone ponad czterdzieści lat temu. Dyrektorem artystycznym i choreografem od ponad trzydziestu lat jest Magdalena Solarz. W 1983 roku zespół WICI został Reprezentacyjnym Zespołem Pieśni i Tańca Związku Narodowego Polskiego. Przez ostatnie trzydzieści lat w różnych grupach tanecznych występowało ponad trzy tysiące dzieci i młodzieży oraz dorosłych tancerek i tancerzy. Obecnie w zajęciach bierze udział ponad stu tancerzy podzielnych na dwie grupy dorosłych oraz ponad dwustu tancerzy w grupach dziecięcych. W sumie we wszystkich grupach zespołu występuje ponad 350 tancerzy. Swój sukces sceniczny zespół zawdzięcza pracy i wytrwałości choreografów oraz całego sztabu wolontariuszy, którzy czuwają nad strojami, zajmują się gromadzeniem funduszy i przygotowywaniem imprez.

22 W ICI s Success in Colombia, South America Fraternal News Anyone who knows some geography is aware that, Colombia belongs to South America, and maybe also knows that their capitol is rich, but not many people have traveled to this country. It has been a short time since little more tourists have started visiting Colombia that is because for many years there was a war between the drug cartel and the police. Even now, after the war has ended, you can find military scattered across the cities. Wici received an invitation for the festival Colomibia Baila. Having received the invitation in the winter-time, we pondered on taking part of this festival, and because we were curious about this country and their culture, we decided to part take in the festival and visit their country. The festival took place in the city of Florida Valle Del Cauca with the population of 60 thousand. Concerts were organized in the central parts of town and the dance groups were bused to the place. Around 40 different groups were taking part of this festival, which from only seven were international and the rest were from Colombia. There were parades through the city and the longest one took 4 hours. Crowds of adults and school youth were eagerly applauding all of the folk groups. Our dancers invited the viewers for a dance, which greatly amused the viewers. They all wanted pictures with our dancers and were constantly asking for their autographs. Our tallest guy of the group, Artur Hadas, dubbed Grande by the town people was constantly swarmed with girls, and the local boys were snatching our group s blonde girls for pictures. We had a lot of activities planned throughout the days, for example in the mornings we were getting to know the other groups and in the afternoon we had concerts. Wici represented the USA, dancing traditional American dances and clogging. The audience loved the dances and the music.
23 The real hit of the festival was the competition the majesty of Dance in which a international jury picked the best pair of dancers. This couple was crowned king and queen of the festival along with this. The pairs were being judged on not only their choreography but also their costumes, hair styles, their presentation and the beauty of the girl. Pairs from Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Panamá, Ecuador, México, and Colombia were all taking part in this contest. Every pair was to dance two dances and the jury had a really hard time deciding the winners because everyone showed their best. Our dancers danced a waltz from a saloon and a dance with a lasso. After a short debate, the jury chose the winners: Agnes Kulesza and Daniel Szeliga, the soloists from Wici. They won first place along with a monetary award and Agnes was crowned queen of Colombia Balia Our happiness had no boundaries. But the best experience was the last concert, for which Wici prepared a mash-up of their dances along with a surprise- they danced and sang the favorite song of the Colombians: Colombia tierra quierida. When the musicians played the first notes of this song, the audience stood up and applauded and sang the song with the dancers. Wici has not had such a standing ovation, although we did have standing ovations in France, Portugal, and Mexico. The Colombian enthusiasm surpassed our imagination: people were crying from happiness. After that performance we did not want to leave. But we did receive an invitation for next year, along with the other groups which took part of this festival. We shall see what the year 2014 will bring.

26 Life Insurance for New Parents Becoming a parent for the first time is an exciting and usually overwhelming time. There is so much to think about from the nursery, feeding, baby showers and parenting classes. But one important aspect that is often overlooked during this busy time is changing life insurance needs. Before having children many people do not carry life insurance, but bringing a new life into the world that you are completely responsible for may change your outlook. Life insurance is an important financial tool to help your family in the event of your death. This becomes even more important if you have children to support. You have to find time to sit down, go over your income, debts, and monthly obligations to ensure you can comfortably support your family and to determine how much life insurance you will need. Responsibilities change greatly once you become a parent, and this definitely applies to the protection of your children financially through life insurance coverage. It doesn t have to be expensive but it will give you the feeling of comfort and security. 26 Call the Membership Department of the Polish National Alliance We are serving families since 1880 providing a variety of life insurance and annuity products. Became a member of our fraternal family today!
