Kumusta Kayong Lahat
I hope everyone is in good health, keeping warm over the winter and taking care of yourselves, because we are looking forward to seeing you on Labour Weekend – It is now only three months to go.
We are now counting down the biggest event that the Taranaki Filipino Society has ever hosted. I hope you are spreading the word to all the Filipino outside Taranaki to come to our weekend. Book your motel early for the holiday.
We are still looking for volunteers to help us so keep this date free in your diary. Evelyn and I went to Wellington to attend the Philippine Independence Day celebrations. This was hosted by the Embassy and well attended by over one hundred people from different countries with our M.P. Chester Borrow. The ceremony was followed by food, drinks and entertainment.
Congratulations to all the officers who were elected again to the committee, and welcome to our new committee members.
Thank you everyone.

It is now nearly the end of another financial year, and look forward to seeing you all again. This year has been an extra busy one with organising everything for the Labour Weekend Pilipino Reunion.
We are progressing well with our Labour weekend arrangements. All the sports venues are now booked, with the volleyball teams playing at Stratford, with the other sporting events being held in New Plymouth. If anyone else is interested in participating in the Labour Weekend function, contact any Committee member or our Secretary, Edna.
Just a friendly reminder that anyone who wants to play in any of the sporting events must be a member of a club affiliated to the Federation of Filipino Associations, Clubs and Societies, Inc. (FFASC).
We also ask that all our members attend the Labour Weekend function and be prepared to help as we are still short of volunteers. Even Hawera members are prepared to chip in – thanks to Flora for volunteering.
Thanks to all the members and non-members who helped with our fundraising activities, including the sausage sizzles at the Warehouse Bell Block, Warehouse NP and Mitre 10 at the Mega Valley Mall. Also special thanks to all the Committee and Secretary for their hard work done for our Labour Weekend function. Also a special thanks to my husband, John, for running around for our appointments.
Thank you everyone!
