PHILIPPINES – the Pearl of the Orient Sea! We should always keep in our minds what President Aquino said in his message during last year’s Independence Day celebration: “Our forefathers’ patriotism, bravery and determination to defend our people from injustice have brought freedom and democracy we now enjoy.”.This year, Filipinos around the world, will commemorate the 117th year of Independence from Spain.
Here in Dallas Metroplex, the Philippine Independence will be celebrated with a Pista Sa Nayon on June 6 at the Traders Village in Grand Prairie, showcasing delicious Filipino cuisines, Santacruzan, cultural entertainment, Pinoy Superstar, and a Gala Night on June 20, at the Double Tree Hotel by Hilton. Featured programs include the Gintong Alay-Perlas ng Silangan awards, Ms. Philippine Independence, cultural experience and entertainment. Filipino Mass/Flag raising at Divine Mercy Catholic Church on June 14, and Sports Tournaments are added significant attractions. These celebrations are made possible by PRDC officers, board members, advisory board, and executive committees, with the help and cooperation of the members of most Filipino organizations in the Dallas Metroplex.
I am inviting all of you Filipinos and American friends to please come and be united with us in thanking God for our forefathers’ heroism. Your attendance will make these events so happy and meaningful. MABUHAY ANG PILIPINAS!
