Why Should I become a member of the PNA?  We are a Fraternal organization, as you may know. But, what does this mean? How are we different? What does the PNA offer that I cant get some where else?  The answer is that as a Member of the PNA, you are considered as family in the PNA. Our Members are all part of an organization that cares about you. Assets that the PNA acquires goes right back to our Members, our Polish heritage, and what we represent and support and not lining pockets of big cooperates or any off shore investors.  We support Poland, all people of Polish descendent's, Polish-Americans and take Pride in our Polish heritage.

- except of one of our past Wigilias, "about 50 people gathered... for the annual Wigilia Dinner of Polish National Alliance White Eagle Lodge 3149 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Each place setting was decorated with three sprigs of wheat bound by a colorful ribbon symbolizing the unity of the Blessed Trinity. A special crystal bell resounded seven times to commemorate each of the recently deceased lodge members, for whom the empty place at table had been set. The meatless dinner consisted of salad, fish chowder, baked fish, pierogi, kapusta, several vegetables and sernik for desert. An important part of the program was conducted by Lodge President Stanley Podzieli├▒ski who explained the ritual sharing of Oplatek, the sheaves of grain in the four corners of the banquet room, the significance of hay and straw and other Polish Christmas customs and beliefs..." - from The Polish American Journal
