2016 Thank You!

Thank you to everyone young and old who joined us today to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Vallejo Pista Sa Nayon.  It was an awesome celebration of Filipino heritage, pride, culture and traditions.  We hope you had an opportunity to immerse yourself in our culture either through witnessing our first Sunduan parade, sampling some filipino cuisine, learning a few new games or even played a round of sungka at our Youth Pavilion.

It was such a fun filled day filled with high energy and enthusiasm!  Thank you to George Da Plumma for hosting this event and to Nannette Inventor and Mon David for winding down the day.

Thank you to all of the sponsors and vendors who provided the community with a wealth of information and services regarding wellness, retirement and spiritual enlightenment.

We are already making plans for 2017.  If you’d like to help us please drop us a line to let us know how you’d like to help out.
