This Week: From the President

      The Music Pier Tribute to the Philippines held some 2 weeks ago still linger in most of us, maybe because this is the year that many of us went all the way to really get involved and deliver.  Consul Zaldy Patron of the Consulate General New York sent me a wonderful email. It’s not just for me but in my heart I know it is for all of us:
“Dear Tita Hermie, Thank you, once again, for FECGP’s participation at Ocean City, NJ’s 4th Annual Tribute to the Philippines. The event would not have been as successful without your group’s invaluable support. Hope to have all of you again next year. Best regards, Zaldy.
      Consul General Mario de Leon, also wrote us a letter of “Thanks” and is also within our website click here.
