Yours in service,
It is with great sorrow that we share the passing of our dear friend, leader, long-time Filipino organizer and advocate, and former LAFACE President RUBY de VERA
last January 31, 2021. Ruby was a shining example of courage, a role model And Filipino champion both in the City and out in the community.
We will continue to shine Ruby’s light by carrying her legacy with us in our own lives and activities.
In last Wednesday’s council session, February 3, 2021, Council Members Kevin de Leon, Gil Cedillo and Monica Rodriguez adjourned the meeting in memory of Ruby De Vera. We may be able to share the adjourning motion as it becomes available and any information based on the family’s wishes. Her family will receive a certificate from the city clerk’s office.
Please include her in your thoughts and prayers.
The Philippine Consulate General in Los Angeles is pleased to invite the Filipino-American community to watch the airing of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts’ (NCCA) project dubbed, "DanceXchange on Air".
Dance Xchange on Air’s selection of episodes for international audiences, especially for Overseas Filipino communities in the United States West Coast will be streamed on Sunday, 31 January 2021 at 6:00 p.m. (PST) on the NCCA’s official Facebook Page:
as well as on the Consulate General’s official Facebook page:
Dance Xchange on Air was organized by the NCCA’s National Committee on Dance led by its Chairperson and Overall Festival Director, Dr. Shirley Halili-Cruz. The project features various dance groups from different parts of the Philippines and brings light to the current challenges faced by artists during this time of global pandemic.
Please feel free to disseminate this information to your Association’s members.
Maraming salamat po!
