UPAASV has a dream …the Museo Pilipino, a museum in the Sacramento and vicinity that showcases the Filipino heritage…its history, culture, traditions for the knowledge and appreciation of our children and future generation. To push the dream forward, the association officers met with former Davis Mayor Ruth Asmundson on Jan 10. to brainstorm next steps. Fortunately, the Davis Filipino Group, some of whom are also UPAASV members and friends, were also meeting with her that night for their Typhoon Yolanda fundraising. Good bonding time, fruitful discussions, delicious arroz caldo, courtesy of our beloved Mayor/Adviser. We even came home with dried laurel leaves from her garden. Some pics show Mayor Ruth and her mom, UPAASV officers Fred Aquino, Susan and Alex Castillo (Beep Alo was the photographer), Davis members Cesar and Chelo Abrenilla, George and Bebot Patena, Marisa Agnew, Carla Datanagan, Emma Tiangco, Alit Mackill,Val Tiangco, Nancy Clemente, Sin Sin Yong, Bill, Lorna,Amy, Nory, Rebecca and Jamani.
