Markham Federation of Filipino Canadians Marks 30 sticky icon

 

November 1st (article by BK Jimenez) - The wind stopped whooshing, the predicted shower of flurries chose to happen outside GTA, the stillness of the crisp cool evening all seemed to give way to pomp and glitter. Oh what a Night! ’Twas a jampacked gala room at Crystal Fountain when everyone came in Black and White. A grand celebration of united Filipinos in their adopted home in Markham, Ontario. Highlighting the event was the participation of the youth and the seniors through song and dance numbers. A brief seamless display of entertainment. Nonstop dancing followed - everyone gyrated to hits from the 60s to present, staying alive and upbeat.
