Hello everyone,

What a picnic! While I received tons of compliments for a successful and fun picnic, I am not worthy to take all the credits. Credit goes to a lot of people who helped me along the way, especially the chairmanship of Dr. Marie Rebancos and the awesome team and to everyone who came and participated. Gracias!

Fun continues this summer as PCCCF will hold its annual Color Run/Walk this Saturday July 16th at 11am at the Zablocki Park. This is for a worthy cause: our own Free Medical Clinic. See flyer for details. 

Everybody is welcome to join with PCCCF going to the Milwaukee Art Museum on July 24th 1pm-4pm. This event is free but must RSVP to Ms. Jojo Ramos at diwa@wi.rr.com if taking advantage of the free bus ride to and from the Philippine Center. 

Thank you and Mabuhay!

Community Service Award Committee




April 16, 2016
by Isabel Maria Piana and Maria Salomon-Yumang

Every year the FAAWIS community gathers to raise funds for the Free Medical Clinic. While some of the participants are die-hard bowlers who try to improve their techniques, others are content to just dust off their bowling gear for their once a year adventure on the bowling lanes. But either way, everyone from the littlest bowler to the oldest participant is there for a good time. And, this year was no exception.

This year the bowlers gathered on April 16th at JB’s on 41 and filled thirty-four lanes. At the end of the afternoon, these participants heard their names called to claim the following awards.

All scores are for highest two games.

1st Team: Gerry Ramos, Paul Clemente, Ralph Ramos & Molly Ramos 1223
2nd Team: Derick Yumang, Lala Yumang, Joseph Yumang & Marnel Cruz 1073
3rd Team: Ed Gilbert, Bong Capitan, Patrick Elliott & Richard Coury 1014

Ladies' Individual
1st Place: Adrienne Alessio 312
2nd Place Sara Poplawski 305
3rd Place: Annalie Moloney 261

Men's Individual

2nd Place: Eddie Gilbert 376
3rd Place: Gerry Ramos 355

Congratulations to all the winners! 50/50 raffle and other prizes were given away. FAAWIS was able to donate $600 to the Free Medical Clinic, the beneficiary of this bowling event.

See you next Spring!
