On the 29th Anniversary of Pagdiriwang Philippine Festival, in commemoration of the 117th Anniversary of Philippine Independence, I am honored to extend my warmest greetings and congratulations to all the officers, staff, volunteers, organizers and performers of the Filipino Cultural Heritage Society of Washington (FCHSW). On behalf of the Philippine Department of Tourism – San Francisco, we take pride in your achievements and contributions towards sustaining the Filipino culture, values and heritage.
May I also take this opportunity to invite everyone to come and join the 10th Ambassadors, Consuls General and Tourism Directors Tour (ACGTDT) to the Philippines which will be held on July 6-9, 2015. The ACGTD Tour gives you the opportunity to revisit our heritage and experience the exquisite Malacanang Museum, explore historical and vibrant Cebu while enjoying the authentic Filipino hospitality and other exciting activities.
In closing, my best wishes for a meaningful and enjoyable 2-day event and continued success for Filipino Cultural Heritage Society of Washington in spreading and sharing the Filipino culture in the Pacific Northwest.
