Honolulu’s FilCom Center to hold Christmas celebration, Dec. 3
HONOLULU – The Filipino Community Center will host its 11th Annual Pasko sa FilCom on Sunday, December 3, 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the FilCom Center in Waipahu.
The theme this year is Masaya at Mapayapang Kapaskuhan, which means “Joyous and Peaceful Christmas Time.”
The public is invited to this celebration of the FilCom Center’s 11 years of bringing Filipinos and non-Filipinos together to learn and celebrate the cultures and traditions of the Philippines and the experiences of Filipino Americans.
Over the years, the FilCom Center has become a unique link within the Filipino community and between the Filipino community and the larger society. Not only has the FilCom Center provided a meeting place for Filipino organizations, functions and events, it has also conducted much needed social, economic and educational services, including NCLEX nursing licensure review classes, computer enrichment and workforce training workshops, financial literacy seminars, US citizenship classes, singing and dance lessons and martial arts classes.
This year, in the spirit of Masaya at Mapayapang Kapaskuhan, Filipino and non-Filipino community groups, organizations and individuals are coming together to share their knowledge and talents in a day filled with singing, dancing, crafts and cultural and public service exhibits.
Since Pasko sa FilCom is a family-oriented event, activities for children are being planned. There will also be contests for creating parols, choral performances, tabletop Christmas tree decorations and karaoke singing.
These activities are being planned and conducted by volunteers, so supporters are urged to give financial assistance to defray some of the costs for this event.
A sponsorship form is attached describing the various financial assistance levels. This annual event attracts over 600 island residents and visitors. However, even those unable to become a sponsor or make a donation this year can come to Pasko sa FilCom to celebrate the year, Philippine culture and the FilCom Center.
