From the President’s Desk – September 2017

Greetings to everyone

As President of our Taranaki Filipino Society, I would like to thank you all for joining in and making our events so enjoyable. We have had our Cultural Night, where our new, and not so new, officers were sworn in. This was followed by a program of dancing and singing by our members from all over Taranaki. We have also had a variety show. We are truly blessed to have such an abundance of willing and talented people getting involved. This was a great evening, and it’s so nice to see so many of the younger members getting involved. We also took part in the Taranaki Arts Festival, combined with the Taranaki Multi Ethnic. Again, our members show cased Filipino talent.

I would also like to thank all the helpers. I have a wonderful committee, who all work hard to put on these events and performances. We also need to acknowledge the Pinoy Food Shop New Plymouth and J&B Asian Trading for their continued support and sponsorship with prizes for our raffles. Please be sure to support these fine people. We have also had pleasing news, our committee, thanks to a suggestion from Flora, have gained sponsorship to help Jenny Gutang going to Christchurch. Planet Earth Travel have kindly sponsored return flights for her. This has been a wonderful boon. When you plan your next trip back to the Philippines, please be sure to support them, and thank them for assisting us.

We look forward to seeing you all at our next events. You can keep up to date with what’s happening by checking out our new look Facebook page (Taranaki Filipino Society Inc.). Jenny has made this for us so please LIKE it. May GOD be always with us.

President- Romellia Rosal
