26: 2012 Joann S. Ozog recognized by the Polish Museum of America Your dedication and accomplishments are remembered and appreciated.
27: Congratulations as Recipient of the PMA's 2014 Polish Spirit Award!
28: Precisely because you poured your time, effort and energy into the PMA, it came alive! The PMA went from a dusty old repository for artifacts from the history of the Polish American community and Poland, to a dynamic institution that reached out into the community. How? With a Newsletter to let people know the PMA is again active, with workshops to teach new generations of Polish Americans the folk arts and cuisine of their ancestors, with Christmas Wigilia to enable Pol-Ams to observe Polish holiday traditions and customs first hand as well as cultural events and art contests for Polonia's youth. That would have been enough for anyone else, but not for you. The teacher is you wrote workbooks to engage the students when they visited the Museum, booklets about significant Polish historical figures and even a booklet on Chicago's Polish immigrants. Then you took on the challenge of raising funds for the PMA so that the facility itself could be physically renovated and improved. You initiated a nationwide membership campaign promoting the PMA as belonging to every Polish American regardless of where they live. Then your fund raising efforts spilled over into the PRCUA Educational Fund scholarships. Your annual Education Fund luncheon was something people looked forward to! You never asked anyone else to do something that you, yourself would not do. You were the first person to arrive at events and the last person to leave. I watched. I saw it all. I know what you did. Most of all, you inspired me - to use my God-given talents to help others in whatever way I possibly can. You showed me how to do it - and when I retire, my new success will be because of your inspiration. You were a great teacher to me. I have the greatest love, admiration and respect for you, Joann, above everyone else I know. I truly thank God for the privilege of knowing you and working with you for 12 years. You are a remarkable woman and I'm honored to be your friend! With Love from Kasia Rosypal | June 2014 Dearest Joann, This photo book is my heartfelt gift to you at the time when you are being honored with the Polish Museum's "Polish Spirit Award" for your many contributions to that institution. No one in today's society deserves that honor more than you do! You came to the Polish Museum as a newcomer. But you did not let that stop you. You evaluated the Museum's needs, assessed your own abilities, created a workable plan, recruited volunteers and did what you needed to do to revitalize the institution and make it known throughout Polonia.
