In behalf of the Fi-Am Retirees and Friends Association, I want to take this opportunity to thank the Philippine Cultural Committee for giving me the chance to chair in this year's preparation and celebration for the 28th anniversary of Pista sa Nayon. To continue with the tradition, we are bringing to you the Pista sa Nayon, probably a little more exciting than the previous pasts because we are presenting to you an aggressive program that will entice your taste buds if you are looking for fun, for more fun and for much more fun.
I would like to welcome our wonderful kababayans who will participate in this year's cultural celebrations sponsored by the Philippine Cultural Committee. This year, the second year we will hold the historical-cultural parade which will involve the participation of a cast of hundreds of youths, Ati-atihan of Aklan, Sinulog of Cebu, Igorot of Baguio, Muslims of Mindanao & more.
I also thank all the City of Vallejo officials, sponsors, performers, booth vendors, souvenir program and most importantly to Mr. Greg Macabenta for bringing the Kasaysayan ng Lahi parade again this year and the GMA International for pro bono.
Maraming Salamat sa inyong lahat!
