On December 8th, the Manitoba Filipino Business Council celebrated their first annual Christmas Party. The children – and yes also their parents – had fun playing musical chairs. The children played “Sammy Says ” – as Sammy Sarte of Sarte Heating and Cooling tried his best to fool the children! The MFBC children also had prepared a special dance number to present the members – wearing their “I [heart] Filipino Journal” t-shirts! The Christmas Party highlight was also the children picking from the Port a Party store – a store set up just for the children of MFBC !
