Announcement (August 16, 2013)

Dear Fellow Southern Leytenos and friends,

Warm greetings from the officers and members of the Board of the Southern Leyteno International!

Our annual picnic 2013, held last August 10, was a great success. It was well attended; kababayans from Illinois, Missouri, Milwaukee, Utah, California, Michigan, New York and Canada had a good time fellowshipping. The good weather was just beautiful! Games for adults and children were fantastic! There delicious food like lechon, sinugbang isda, barbecue, pancit, barbacua, chicharon, vegetables fresh from the garden, etc. Another table of different kinds of dessert were unbelievable! The prayer blessing was led by Greg Lahmann from Missouri. The “Harana” was sung by handsome men accompanied by our very own guitarist, Elvo Masing.

The upcoming Dinner Dance is on October 19,2013, at Avalon Banquets, 1905 East Higgins Road, Elk Grove Village, IL 60007. We hope that you could join us on this occasion for a good cause like the Two Classroom School Building in Southern Leyte, Philippines.

May God bless you with good health, abundance and happiness.

Sincerely,
Oriel Markines-Carillo
SLI President
