 Summer Message from FAAWIS President Tom Hey

Well it seems that summer is just around the corner! I hope you’ll join us, family and friends for  our yearly FAAWIS Picnic at Wirth Park on June 13th. We have a Mardi Gras theme, complete with beads  and masks, a best costume contest, all kinds of fun activities and a few surprises up our sleeves. The flyer below hints at much of what’s in store. Gather with us to feast and celebrate.

    Saturday, August 1st is our exciting annual FAAWIS Dinner Dance. Mabuhay! Keeping our Culture and Friendships Alive is what it’s all about this year. Happening earlier than usual, it gives a homecoming opportunity for our out-of-towners and college kids to reunite with us for the evening, or the weekend, at the Country Springs Hotel and The Springs Water Park. There’s some excitement in the air as several people are planning mini-reunions around the Dinner Dance. And Country Springs has helped us out by offering great weekend get-away packages that include a room or suite accommodating four to six people, two days of water park passes, pizza and extras, and game tokens from just $149 per night. To secure these rates call Country Springs Hotel by June 15th at (262) 547-0201 and ask for the special FAAWIS rates. Limited quantities are available.

    The Dinner Dance is $50 for adults and $20 for kids. There will be plenty of dancing, delicious Filipino desserts, our famous silent auction, a grand raffle, and more during this fast-paced fun evening. We encourage Filipino attire. And to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Silahis Dance Troupe we invite new and old dance members to contact Sheila Plaga     Jackson at 414-427-4694 to participate in a special dance. Plan to share this special night with family and friends! All Dinner Dance guests must pre-register, and unfortunately, walk-ins cannot be accommodated. Please RSVP by July 1st.. Registration information is on page 9.

    Check your email, FAAWIS on Facebook, or www.faawis.org for updates. Our next Bulalakaw will publish in August after the Dinner Dance.

    Thank you to all who are participating in FAAWIS events and who are doing good things in our community. If you’d like to get involved we’d be happy to hear from you. Ask us in person, or contact us at faawis@gmail.com. I’m looking forward to seeing you soon.
