Foreword

PAMAS believes in a newsletter as a public informant and pictorial record of events. It helps inform its members of current events and news of general interest to Filipino aggregates in New England. It creates a display window for those who have no idea who or what Filipinos are. By revealing our customs, traditions and way of life, neighbors of different ethnic backgrounds can better understand the unique habits of Filipinos and we do theirs, creating mutual respect. The Newsletter can also serve as a homing beacon for new immigrants who have no one with whom to relate or communicate.
