For 42 years, the hard work of the Filipino community and Delano area residents who have built Philippine Weekend into a celebration that has become an icon within the community of Delano.  Philippine Weekend serves as an avenue for elders to pass along their heritage to their offspring through cultural events and activities.  Team Vidak attended the 42nd Annual Philippine Weekend Opening Ceremonies where Senator Vidak presented Certificates of Recognitions to Bert Delarmente for being named Grand Marshal and Chester Longboy for receiving this year’s Mabuhay Spirit Award for their hard work and contributions to both the Filipino and greater Delano community.  Andy and District Representative Rogelio Caudillo attended the 42nd Annual Philippine Weekend Opening Ceremonies (top left) where the Andy presented Certificates of Recognition to Bert Delarmente (top right) for being named Grand Marshal and Chester Longboy (bottom left) for receiving this year’s Mabuhay Spirit Award.  “I had a great time talking with folks at Phillippine Weekend,” said Andy.
