On Тuesday, August 23, 2011, employees of the Ukrainian National Association’s Home Office in Parsippany, N.J., took a little time out of their work day to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the re-establishment of Ukraine’s independence. Seen on the right are members of the UNA staff along with staffers of the UNA’s two newspapers, Svoboda and The Ukrainian Weekly, who gathered to honor their ancestral homeland with a toast. With the employees are two UNA executive officers, President Stefan Kaczaraj and National Secretary Christine Kozak. The celebration came a day early since Ukrainian Independence Day, August 24, is an official holiday (and a day off for employees) at the UNA.
A photo archive of UNA history has been launched on the UNA website. It is a work in progress that will be expanded and refined. To take a look, go to unainc.org/una/the-una-is-125-years-old/.
