Hello everyone,Here is my suggestion for the name of the group:
Butihing Kapitbahayang Filipino nagLilingkod sa Downsview / Downsview Ward 9 Filipino Neighbourhood Association
BUKLOD/ DIWA    –   It is a Filipino compound word which roughly translates to “Celebration  of spirit/ consciousness.” Whether the Filipino word  “BUKLOD” or the Spirit  “DIWA” can work alone as the group’s name, which strongly suggests its Filipino identity. Also, I want to point out that my email is ysh.cabana@gmail.com.
Let me know what you think.

Hi, Becky:

Thanks for your email forwarded   by  my brother, Rodolfo Gerochi.  My name was not included in the contact list last night, therefore I am submitting the following information:


Name:         Ricardo P. Gerochi  Jr.

Email:          richgerochi@gmail.com

Website:      http://www.richgerochi.com

For brainstorming purposes, I am suggesting the following:

Organization Name :      “Fil-Can Youth Movement”

Mission:      “To Enhance Achievement Movement”   (TEAM)

Motto:       “Together Everyone Achieves More”        (TEAM)

 Goal :        Youth development in Ward9, Downsview   Area

Target in general :         Ward9, Downsview Area

Specific Target :         Filipino – Canadian Youths residing in the surrounding area of  “Grandravine Community Centre”   which include the Jane & Finch  area, notoriously known  for drug trafficking and other crimes   related to youth violence, robbery, and drug trafficking.

Rationale:          By targeting the kids,  it is obvious that the parents are involved  and parent’s  participation is the key to the success of  the proposed Association.


Please send me a copy of  the contact list including telephone numbers, emails, and websites of our  Committee Members.

I am preparing a ” Trial Website” wherein we can integrate or consolidate in an orderly and concise manner,  all the data we gather starting from  our first meeting up to the last day before  the planned first event in July 2014.

I know that everything is manually recorded but my idea of a “Trial Website” is to make use of  modern technology for quick distribution of information to all members of Planning Committee.  When enough data is gathered   I intend to make a presentation of the “Trial Website”  during our next meeting  if time permits and with the  consent of majority Committee members.

If you have any questions, please send email.

Hi, Becky:

Thanks for your email.

My home number is 416-628-6966 and my Cell No. is 647-515-1975
Where and when will be the next meeting of the Planning Committee?

I summarized my suggestions in a private website I prepared that could not be accessed by anybody except those who are authorized. This is for the Planning Committee to discuss, brainstorm, and consider in our next meeting.

I intend to present this website to the Planning Committee during the next meeting
but if you are interested, I will give you access to the website for review and comments. If you prefer to wait until the next meeting, let me know.

Member, Planning Committee

Good morning everyone,

Thank you for this invitation. I’m confirming my attendance for the meeting this Thursday.

Our next meeting – April 3, 2014 – 7:00 pm will be held at the All Purpose Room at the Grandravine Community Centre.
May I request to please come with your suggestions on what do we need from Maria A. for our launch.
I would like to ask Maria about the community garden.  We need to have this going because planting starts in May.
I also requested Alida to book the Grandravine Community Centre for our launch.  I gave her 5 dates starting June 28, July 5, 12, 19 & 26 for our launch date.  Hopefully we will be able to get any one of the above dates.
With regards to the community garden Jennifer advised me that we have to meet and sit down with Park Planners or Toronto  District School Board to find out availability of arable lands in North York that we can rent (obtain) for our association.  It might be too late for this year, but I would still pursue this just in case we get there on time.
Please send me any item you want included in the Agenda by Sunday or Monday morning the  latest.
I know that most of you are coming  directly from work and would be hungry.  If anyone would voluntarily bring some snacks and water for the hungry that would be appreciated.  I don’t mind bringing something.
I think our brain works better with a full stomach.
Kindly confirm if you are attending the meeting.
Maraming salamat po sa lahat.
Becky Cezar-Redublo

Very nice

Hi, Becky:
Thanks for your comments  on our “Trial Website”   (Very nice.  I found a small error – “MAGKASAMAMA” – should it not read “MAGKASAMA-SAMA”).
I replaced the header with another without an error.   Terryl has provided many Logos from which we could select  the best.   Although I like the previous one due to Pilipino translations in it,  the Planning Committee will be the one to decide.  I think Terryl  will be glad to make some changes on the logo if there are errors.  Also, if you find some errors or suggestions in our “Trial Website”,  let me know and I will change it.
