Kamusta na po kayo? Do you get a sense that time is just breezing past? October is ending and we are feeling nostalgic over celebrations of “Filipino American History Month” (FAHM) as if we are not completely done with its observance.
Still, I hope that we have advanced in the awareness of our identity as Filipinos in this country that we have chosen as our home. We have traced the arrival of the first Filipinos in what is now Morro Bay in California on October 1587. We have also made our mark in the American Labor Movement through labor leader Larry Itliong, born in October.
Between Morro Bay and Manong Larry (and today) are stories yet untold, of sacrifices and accomplishments that will no doubt unfold in time, as legends do. We write these stories every day through our hard work and the exemplary lives we endeavor to lead.
In our humble way, PACC Texas has striven to assist our kababayans in their business and professional pursuits. We uphold our mission to be of service to you and we hope that the month of October will always be a reminder that as we walk hand-in-hand in our quest to achieve our unique American dreams, we leave a worthy legacy.
With this in mind, our newsletter features accomplishments of chamber members as individuals and regional teams plus a wealth of information and ideas that will, hopefully, steer us closer to that goal.
We close the month with the hope that you had a meaningful Filipino American History Month. Mabuhay po tayong lahat!
