The Chicago Nightingales (CN) held their 5th biennial Induction Ceremony on May 28th, 2022 at the elegant banquets of Drury Lane in Oak Brook.
We had the extreme pleasure of the Honorable Consul General Ms. Susana V. Paez, Philippine Consulate General-Chicago to offi ciate the oath of offi ce for the newly elected 2022-2024 CN Offi cers and Board members. Also in attendance, accompanying PCG ConGen Paez was Consul Ryan C. Pondoc.
Globally, it has been a very diffi cult year with the pandemic but the CN team members were stronger than ever to fulfi ll the mission of helping local communities. We were able to partner with many organizations to reach out and help with much needed supplies, medical equipment, food, clothing, and to assist with fi nancial help for the war relief in the Ukraine. In addition, our CN group showed their special appreciation by giving some treats to fi rst responders and front liners in many diverse areas. Congratulations to our new CN Offi cers and Board members.
