Message from the President

Happy Fall! As we put away our warm weather clothes let’s remember what a great summer we’ve had, while looking forward to the holiday season. It’s hard to believe how time flies! FANHS Sonoma had a busy summer but we are now in the middle of preparing for our Filipino American History Month celebration in October.

Our special event titled, “Women Inspiring Women: HERstory to Healing,” co-sponsored by the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), will be held on October 26, 11:30-4:00pm, at the Enmanji Hall in Sebastopol.

The program, beginning with a buffet luncheon courtesy of Art Ibleto -The Pasta King, will highlight heartfelt stories from Sonoma County Women of Color, who will share stories about the inspiring women in their lives and how this inspiration moved them to engage in critical issues in their communities.

Be part of Sonoma County history! Join us as we honor Sonoma County Women of Color who make a difference. We look forward to seeing you there!

On behalf of the board, we wish you continued good health, abundance and prosperity!
