Activities and Events

The list of events and activities since the Association was established in April 1988 was impressive, indicating a deep dedication to our initial goals:

  • Good Friday - the reading of Pasyon on Good Friday is a tradition that continues to this day

  • May festivities - the month of May brings one of our main events where we celebrate friendship, camaraderie and Filipino food!    Initially, it was to celebrate Mother's Day; in recent years, it was either Hawaiian Dinner and Dance or Barn Dance. In 2013, it will be Flores de Mayo or the Santacruzan, a pageant held in honour of Virgin Mary.

Other important events and activities include:

  • Victoria Day parade

  • Philippine Independence Day Dinner-Dance

  • Garage sale fund-raising

  • Sunday Open House - five to six times a year, hosting of Sunday Open House at the Bayanihan Centre

  • Senior's Day - starting in April 2013, every second Friday of the month (except holidays) is Seniors Day at the Bayanihan Centre - tai chi, karaoke (sing-alongs) scrabble and bingo. Snacks are provided.

  • Workshops on Health and Wellness - Elder Law, Elder Abuse and Senior's Rights, Managing Your Blood Pressure, Diabetes and Medications

  • Summer Garage Sale

  • Group Excursions - e.g., Bus trip to Reno (2010), Bus trip to Whistler, Tulalip and Vancouver (2012)

  • Annual Picnic at Kinsmen Park. This year's picnic will be a joint one with VFCCA and VFCA.

  • Halloween Dinner and Dance

  • Christmas Dinner Party
