“Tahanan ni Benjie” hosted the Alberta Filipino Journal (AFJ) staff meeting, April 4, at 9876 33 Avenue NW in Edmonton.
AFJ publisher Jun Angeles, editor Lito Velasco, advertising manager Melanie Angeles and some staff were able to check on the “Tahanan” which has started to become a host to small Filipino group gatherings.
The “Tahanan” is the venue of the Benjie Lindo Live Updates that promotes various Pinoy events and other activities. “Napag isipan naming magkaroon ng isang maliit na gathering place para sa ating mga kababayan, at libre po ang venue na to para sa kanila,” said Lindo.
Angeles thanked Lindo and his corporate backer, the Quality Care Group of Companies, for hosting the Journal meeting and for promoting the Alberta-based Filipino newspaper which is publishing on its 11th year.
The Quality Care Group of Companies, that also runs the first Filipino co-owned health clinic Medicus Family Health Clinic and Pharmacy, is also supporting the AFJ as one of its advertisers.
Quality Care Group co-founders Kris Salumbides and Jacob Christian were also on hand to personally welcome the AFJ staff, share a meal and discuss various news events in the province.
