Hello Mga Isko and Iska,
The UPAABC is co-sponsoring a movie event with the 100 Filipino Film Series (Highlighting and Showcasing the Best of Filipino Cinema) on May 5, 2018, at the Vancouver Public Library at 2 PM. Come and join us in this UPAABC event for May, with a fellowship and discussion after the showing. This event is in celebration of Asian Heritage Month in Vancouver and in support of the projects of the Filipino Community. Spaces will be on a first come first served basis, so be there early! 😀
Honour and Excellence!

Please join us at the book launching of fellow Iska Ovvian Castrillo-Hill at the Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver on March 20, Tuesday, 5:30 PM, for her book launch on the work of her father, renowned Philippine sculptor Eduardo Castrillo, herself and siblings.
Let's come and support one of ours!
God bless you!

UPAABC President's Message
Isang mainit na pagbati, mga Isko at Iska!
Ang pagkakapili bilang pinuno ng bagong pangasiwaan ng UPAABC ay isang malaking karangalan, lalo na't ang samahan ay binubuo ng maraming mga ipinagpipitagang tagapaglingkod na nagsilbi na ng ilang taon.
Nagpapasalamat kami sa dalawang taong iginugol ni Gng. Charen Cusi at ng kanyang pangasiwaan, at ang maraming proyektong kanilang naisulong sa mga taong ito para sa UPAABC. Nawa'y mapantayan namin ang kanilang mabuting pangangasiwa at pag-alaga sa ating samahan.
Nais naming ibigay sa inyo ang mga proyektong ipina-plano ng aming pangsiwaan sa taong 2017, at nananawagan kami sa inyong lahat na huwang mag-atubiling magmungkahi at magbigay ng opinyon tungkol sa mga ito upang tayo'y magkaroon ng matagumpay na paglilingkod sa inyo at sa ating mga kaanib.
Mula sa amin sa baong pangsiwaan ng UPAABC 2017-2019, mabuhay po kayong lahat, at patnubayan kayo ng Poong Maykapal!
Karangalan at Kahusayan!
Taos pusong bumabati,
Pangulo, UPAABC 2017-2019
