A message from the Corresponding Secretary

Hi OYFA! Be sure to come out to....
Featuring Rex Navaratte: The Premiere Filipino Comedian
featuring The Whethermen
November 14 | 7pm | Newcomb Theater 
Be sure to save the date because this (FREE) show is going to be AMAZING! Rex Navarette is a Comedian that is well-known in the Filipino Community. Even if you are NOT Filipino, you should still come out because laughter is universal!
One of his reviews states, ""Whether the audience is of Filipino descent or not, Rex Navarette made it a point to not only allow the audience into the vibrant lifestyle that almost all Filipino’s can agree on, but he also explains why it is we live the life we do, allowing others to relate in their own ways as well."
