Third Annual Philippine American Heritage Picnic set for Aug. 9 at John C. Rudy County Park
The 3rd Annual Heritage Picnic of the Philippine American Heritage Council will be held on Saturday, August 9 from 12 noon to 5 PM, with booth and food tables open for setup at 11 AM, at John C. Rudy County Park, Wren Pavilion in East Manchester Township near Emigsville, PA.
The Third Annual Picnic features State Representative Seth Grove delivering keynote remarks. All candidates for state and local office who are on the ballot in York County, PA are welcome to attend and may request time to speak to the group (the time allocated will be limited).
There will be a Philippines cultural display at the picnic featuring costumes, souvenirs, mementoes, books and other exhibits from or about the Philippines. The speakers are asked to emphasize in their remarks, what is exceptional about America because the organization is a Philippine AND American Heritage Council. There will be a large assortment of Filipino food dishes (other cultures are most welcome to bring their foods and there will be barbecue pits for burgers, chicken, hot dogs etc., which attendees may bring).
There will be a popular Filipino Bulaklakan Folk Dance performed by costumed members of the brand new Dance Troupe of the Philippine American Heritage Council. While the event is free, all attendees are requested to bring a dish to share (any heritage food or simply USA burgers, hot dogs, chicken for the grill is ok) and a $2 donation is requested ($3 for family). Sponsors ($12) and Patrons ($25) will be given special recognition. Visit PhilippineAmericanHeritage.org for more info (including the event flyer) or RSVP to Chairman@PhilippineAmericanHeritage.org
