It was undeniably a very enjoyable Year-End Christmas party filled with fun, food, gifts, and games that were on showcase last Saturday night, a true manifestation of the spirit of the Yuletide season. In his welcoming remarks, Ar. Alan F. Filio, Chapter President, humbly thanked the guests especially from the FAB, and the Members in attendance for their support to the annual event as well as all the past activities for 2017. The YEP was indeed a fitting end to what had been a very busy and productive year and the chapter looks forward to a more exciting 2018 despite the challenges ahead.
Each committee including the Executive Board have been tasked to prepare a group performance befitting the Yuletide Season. The Committee on Internal Affairs and Committee on External Affairs each presented a very creative and entertaining Dance number while the Committee on Professional Practice and the Executive Board regaled the audience with a spirited rendition of favorite Filipino Christmas carols. Aside from the presentation, all committees and the EB also prepared fun games to the delight of everyone.
