Class and elegance, that’s how FSCA, Filipino Senior Citizens Association, celebrated on October 21, 2017, 35 successful years since its founding. The special milestone was graced by dignitaries, to mention just a few, by the Honourable Lori Sigurdson, Minister of Seniors and Housing, also the event guest speaker, the Honourable Julius D. Torres, Philippine Consul General, and The Honourable Tobias C. Enverga, Jr., Senator. The speaker stated that FSCA should be nominated for an award for what it does to enhance the lives, particularly the Filipino Seniors and the community through its weekly activities, occasional educational and cultural trips.

The guests shared a delicious meal catered by Ela Euro and enjoyed a wonderful night of dancing to the fantastic live band music of The Romantics. As always, there were marvellous entertainment by the FSCA Cultural Dancers, Line Dancers and a Cha Cha Dance.

The highlight of the special occasion was the Coronation and Investiture of Mrs. FSCA 2017, Her Majesty the Queen, Thelma Cerhit and her Entourage -First Princess Emma Mendoza, and Second Princess Nieves Cortez.

It was, indeed, an unforgettable, fabulous and magnificent FSCA 35th Anniversary night and place to remember, led by its strong President, Mrs. Lucy Manuntag.
