By: Lucy De Simone | Council President Hermie Aczon received the “Golden Heart” award from the PHHOSO, Philippine Hearts and Hopes Society at the Astoria Manor Hotel last March 17 in New York City.
“The honor is not mine alone, but for the whole Fil-Am community in the Greater Philadelphia area” she smiled when I asked her. Gwen de Vera also received an award.
Several other recognitions were given to prominent Fil-Am leaders from the Trenton, New York and Connecticut areas. Congratulations to Nena Kaufman who energetically put together the event for her organization, PHHOSO.
