WELCOME TO OUR FIL-AM OF HAVELOCK, CHERRY POINT WEBSITE
OUR ANNUAL VALENTINE'S PARTY FOR 2014 IS CANCELLED. As you know, we concentrated all of our financial efforts this past Christmas towards providing relief for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in the Phillipines. Altogether, thanks to your generosity, Fil-Am of Havelock was able to donate over $5,000.00 to help those Filipinos so desperately in need of food, water, clothing, and shelter.
Due to the amount of money which went towards the relief efforts, and the cost of hosting a gathering, we are regretfully cancelling our annual Valentines Party for 2014. Also, Jacksonville is hosting a fund-raising event on the same night the party was originally planned, and we feel their fund-raising efforts take priority over a party.
Fil-Am Memorial Day Beach Party will be decided at a later date.
Fil-Am Summer Dance & Lil' Miss, Miss, & Mrs. Fil-Am Coronation will be held Saturday, July 19, 2014 from 5:30-11:30pm at the Havelock Tourist and Event Center.
The Fil-Am of Havelock, Cherry Point was founded by Mr. Al Basco in 1982. Al remains an active member in our organization and currently serves as an advisor. Thank you, Al, from all of us at Fil-Am.
PURPOSE OF THE FIL-AM
The purpose of the Fil-Am is to bring closer ties between the Filipino and American people of Havelock-Cherry Point and surrounding areas who share a common bond of friendship, fellowship, or cultural heritage thus promoting a better relationship, understanding and respect for shared values with one another.
We promote the Filipino-American family involvement in the community through shared social functions. We provide family assistance within the Filipino-American Association's capabilities. We promote a healthy environment for our children with special emphasis on education and Filipino-American cultures.
