Prospero Ano Felicidad everyone…
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who donated money during our Christmas Carolling. We had so much fun.
Our Christmas party was also a hit. More people attended than what were expected. Thanks to Bing Robertson and company for the venue decoration.
The executive committee met last Sunday 6th January and discussed the plan for the 2014 Pistang Pilipino sa New Plymouth. You will be updated as we finalise the booking of our sports and beauty pageant venues.
First up is our usual summer BBQ picnic activity which will be held on 19th January, 2013, in time for Patricia Miss Chiquitita Kemps 60th birthday celebration. No need to bring food but please bring your own drinks. Bring yourself, swimming togs, sunhat, sun block, beach umbrellas, insect repellent and an empty stomach to fill with Patricia’s yummy food preparations. See you at Ngamotu beach from 11am. This is an all day affair, weather permitting please God, make it a sunny day. We will have games. Bring your children and please supervise them all the time. We do not want any mishaps.
Next is the Valentines evening to be held on the 10th February, 2013 at Fitzroy Golf Club. Like last year, this event is very promising. Bring your Valentine partner and enjoy the dancing and the food that is going to be catered. You need to pay $12.00 per person for the supper. The society will pay the venue hire. The bar will be opened.
The Multi-Ethnic Extravaganza is back again on 9th March. As usual, we are participating with much enthusiasm in the parade, entertainment and food stall. Any
help from members or non-members will be much appreciated.
Our activities are all lined up for the succeeding months until our AGM in June. Some fundraising ideas have been brought up and we will carefully consider its potential. We will continue to do sausage sizzles and lotto bonus fundraising.
My profound gratitude goes to all my friends who donated money for the loss of my brother. My brother Jun, Melecio C. Pintor, Jr is like our second father in the Pintor family. He lost his fight against prostate cancer, diagnosed 4 years ago.
