Hey OYFA, it's your KO-Sec here!

Welcome back OYFA!!

Hope you all had a great, restful break! Join us, Membership, and Community for
SUPER KAMAYAN this Saturday 2-4PM at the Lorna Sundberg International Center!! We will be rolling and cooking lumpia to kick off family week!

Thank you to those of you who were able to join us at OYFA-KSA Karaoke Night! We hope you all had a great time!

Word of the Week: “kamay” (ka-may) means “to do something (like eat) with your hands.” You have to kamay food in boodle fights - like the picture below!

Welcome back everyone!!!

Be ready to hit the ground running for Barrio practices! Final list of dancers will be coming out soon for traditional dances and I will be adding everyone to a closed Barrio performers group.

Thank you to everyone who signed up for traditional dances! We have never had this many sign ups in the past before! Unfortunately that also means that some people had to be cut due to limited space in each dance. If you are not in a dance please and would really like to be, please feel free to email or message me and we can try to work something out. Thank you all once again for showing so much interest :)

Much love,
Stephen (sgl9gd)
