PCCCF Mission Statement

As citizens of this community, we have partaken of its material and spiritual wealth. Through its benevolence, we have shared with its greatness and now enjoy a way of life that allows us to help alleviate the sufferings of this largely impoverished and troubled world. Therefore, we, Filipino-Americans and our friends of this community, have established the Philippine Cultural and Civic Center Foundation Inc. Through this foundation, which aims to construct a building to house some activities of the community, we hope to bring to the American consciousness the richness of our background, as well as the significance of our contributions to this country. In addition, we also aim to provide services of a civic nature which would, otherwise, be difficult, or too costly , for some people to obtain. And, above all, it is our fervent hope that through this foundation we will help raise generations of citizens who will continue to contribute to the greatness of America and help mold its moral conscience.

We would like to express our gratitude to all the Officers, Board and Ex-officio Members of the PCCCF and members of our Filipino-American community who participated in this September 27, 2014 historical flag raising event. Let it will always be remembered  that on this day, the Philippine flag was officially raised at the premises of the Philippine Center.

The presence of Philippine Vice Consul Ricarte Abejuela III,  City of Greenfield Mayor Mike Neitzke, County Supervisor John Weishan Jr., Milwaukee County Parks Director John Dargle, Executive Director Kaye Garcia from Forest Co. Potawatomi Foundation, Former Vice President Jim Marks of Greater Milwaukee Foundation and presently United Way, Consultant and Linda McFerrin, Vice President of United Way validated the positive impact that the Filipinos have contributed to Milwaukee County.

Please take note that our special guests commented that our Philippine Center is a place of Giving. Milwaukee County Executive Director Chris Abele honored the PCCCF thru Parks Director John Dargle with a Certificate of Appreciation  highlighting our partnership and our programs such as the Free Medical Clinic, Children's Workshop, Literacy Programs (computer, cooking, etc).

Attached are 2 youtube hyperlinks, for you and the others who were not able to make it, to watch this momentous event. Our Philippine flag was raised beside the American flag with full military honors, provided by the American Legion Post 416.  Double click one of the links and watch in theater mode (full screen seems not to work) for a bigger screen.

Watch:
1.      As members of the PCCCF Board and officers with representatives from the Milwaukee County of City of Greenfield watch and display the U.S. and the Philippine flags as a sign of cooperation and partnership.
2.      As the US flag is raised by Milwaukee Parks Director John Dargle while the PCCCF Munting Tinig Children's choir sing the Star Spangled Banner
3.      As the Philippine Flag is raised by PCCCF Executive Director Gerry Ramos while the PCCCF Munting Tinig Children's choir sing the Lupang Hinirang
4.      As the American Legion Post 416 provide military honors and a 21 gun salute (3 shots - seven rifles)
5.      And a surprise and unexpected appearance of a little boy saluting the flag with the American Legion and then giving a salute as the rifle team marches out.

Watch "after all the terrible

things I do"

Please watch "after all the terrible things I do" a play written by Filipino Americans Rey Pamatmat and directed by May Adrales at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater October 1 through November 9.

The play is a heart-wrenching and deeply personal look at the shared pasts and second chances.
A poignant, new American drama finds Daniel, a writer, fresh out of college returning to his Midwestern hometown to regain his sense of self. He takes a job at a local bookstore owned by Linda, an emigre from the Philippines, and soon after, they realize their connection that is much deeper than love for literature. It focuses on bullying and a struggle to fit in, and creating second chances.

The play will be at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater from October 1 to November 9.
Filipino Night will be on October 14, Tuesday night at 7:30 PM.
There will be refreshments before the show.
