I think most of the you are all busy for the upcoming finals.
Anyway, Sir Dennis and I attended the meeting yesterday organized by the Philippine embassy about the upcoming event next month. I am writing this e-mail to inform everybody about the upcoming joint Philippine independence day and migrant workers day celebration on the 8th of June at Hang Gan Park, Seoul. PIKO is one of the participants and the embassy assigned our group to help in ushering the guests for the said activity. I am still coordinating with the embassy regarding the attire, but I will let you know soon. And also, the direction will be given by the university soon. A map will be provided so it's not going to be difficult for us to find the exact location of the event.
The following is the draft of the program:
9:00 - 10:00 Holy Mass
10:00 - 10:20 Parade (per Community/Org)
10:20 - 10:30 Entrance of Colors and National Anthem
10:30 - 10:45 Ecumenical Prayer

- We need to contribute something for the event such as food or drinks. We will just contribute coconut juice and 'turon' with sweet potato so its not going to be difficult to prepare.
- the embassy will sell raffle tickets to raise additional fund for the expenses. we will probably sell some tickets.
- the embassy said that this is like a dry-run for the event next year. They are planning for a big event on 2009 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the bi-lateral relations of Korea and Philippines.
I hope that a lot of PIKO members will come and participate in this event. I will send an e-mail again for some updates in the future.
Take care and may God bless you all always.^^
