Members of the Philippine Business Society of Alberta (PBSA) are drawing up plans of activities for this year.
PBSA president Celso Andrade of Sunfreight Cargo Forwarders said among the topics to be discussed in the next meeting are the upcoming Heritage Month celebrations in June and coordination of activities with the Philippine Consulate General’s Office in Calgary.
Andrade said they work closely with the Consulate’s office and extend whatever assistance the PBSA can give in the conduct of activities specially events that would benefit the Temporary Filipino Workers (TFWs) in the province.
He said that the PBSA is also scheduled to turnover the cheque to the Red Cross after conducting a fund-raising event last year in coordination with the Consulate’s office for the victims of Typhoon Ompong in the Philippines. The PBSA members also volunteered at the Hope Mission last December 16.
Some PBSA officers, Andrade said, will also be joining the Consulate-indorsed Winterscapade event of the Department of Tourism on January 28 to February 4 in Palawan and Batangas.
