CVAH Trip to the Philippines

We will be going to Cagayan next year May 17, 2008 accompanying possibly the Governor of Hawaii and other State officials to meet with the Governor of Cagayan for the signing of the province of Cagayan and State of Hawaii's sister State/Province friendly  relations agreement. Retired representative Dennis Arakaki (adopted son of Cagayan) just came back from the Philippines and went to visit Tuguegarao, Aparri, Ballesteros, Sanchez Mira and Claveria. We hope to visit these same places on this said mission next year. Come join us in this mission and be a part of a historic event that comes once in a lifetime.

We welcome everyone to join us in this trip as well as Cagayanos from other States. Please contact Don Alvarez for further details.
