The Parol Making Workshop is back!


Parol Making Workshop 2014In August of 2011, we had the pleasure of joining the Parol Making Workshop held at our very own center along with Fil-Am Arts. Friends and family of all ages enjoyed this day of crafting parols of different shapes, colors and sizes. If you’ve never seen or made one of these before, or if you missed the last workshop, you’re in for a fun-filled treat! We are all invited to attend this great crafting experience on November 2nd and 15th. Please see flyer above for more information. You may also print the attached flyer.

We hope you to see you there!

Typhoon Haiyan Relief

Flyer-Typhoon Haiyan Relief-draft 4

A message from our President, Marie Anne Diamond:

Friends, your donation will firstly go to Northern Cebu and Ormoc in Leyte, specifically. These places have not been reached as a lot of the large companies and organizations are focusing on Tacloban. Today, our efforts are wholly devoted to providing food and medicine. In a few weeks, we will switch to providing shelter. Finally, we will be engaged in the third and longest phase – rehabilitiation and recontstruction. These are the challenges before us. You will receive periodic reports on our relief activities. Please email us if you have any questions: Bahay Kubo Center will distribute 100% of the donations to the Rotary Club of Cebu West, who will directly act upon our mutual objectives of relief and help to the typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) affected people.Thank you very much.


A message from Rotary Club Cebu West, Mario Manio:

On Sat Nov 17, members of our club are going to San Remigio. Other clubs in Cebu will go to Medelling and Daang Bantayan. District 3860 to which RC Cebu West belongs is focused on relief operations in northern Cebu and Ormoc.
The attached file (see below) contains photos of the destruction in Leyte, which has been the center of attention of the media. Hence, local and international organizations, government and non-governmental institutions are concentrated on Tacloban. The devastation is just as extensive in other places but very little is reported. When we return from our trip to the north, we will give  you an update. The areas ravaged by Yolanda starts in Catmon all the way to Daang Bantayan, Camotes Island and the 3 towns in Batayan Island(Bantayan, Santa Fe and Madridejos). One barangay in Borbon 
reports 90% of houses destroyed.
The immediate needs are food, water, medicine and temporary shelter. Reconstruction and rebuilding of communities will take years. We in Rotary can only do so much to help government perform its function. We do not have enough manpower and resources but we will chip in as best as we can.

How do you spot a fellow Filipino?


We were excited to welcome TFC’s Adobo Nation “L.A. Chika” to our prospective new classroom location in North Hills one Saturday. Anna Diaz, the show’s host, asked some of our BKC members and parents how they spot a fellow Filipino. To watch the video, click on the photo below:
