September 6-8, 2019 Culture Camp
The 2019 FAAGC Culture Camp is coming soon. This will be a great weekend for our kids to lean more about Filipino culture. We are still going to be at Harrison Bay State Park, but this year we will be in the Group Camp, which has 24 cabins which will be on a first come, first served basis when checking in at the camp. We have a large dining hall and kitchen available as well.
The camp is being held Sept. 6, 7, and 8. Pastor Rex Bolis, from the International Community Baptist Church, will be having Sunday service at the camp. We have some pricing changes this year, so be sure to download the Registration form and the Liability Release and Parental Consent form to fill out and return to us. They can be mailed to our P.O. Box or dropped off at the Little Manila Oriental Store.
We are excited about the new location, as the dining hall will still give us plenty of space if it rains.
August 4, 2019 – Summer Picnic
FAAGC Supporting Antipangol Elementary School in Pangasinan
In April, the FAAGC Board voted to help Antipangol Elementary School, a small school of approximately 300 children in San Carlos City, Pangasinan, Philippines. We have donation boxes to collect school supplies, storybooks, textbooks, paper, pens and pencils, crayons, backpacks, etc. and have them placed at different locations. We have already received some articles to send, including dictionaries, small encyclopedia sets, and so on. Please check your shelves and boxes hidden away in your closets for things that could be of use. We are wanting to have enough to be able to ship a box in October. Our Facebook page has locations listed where items may be dropped off for pickup.
