WELCOME CMFAA 2018 PRESIDENT VALERIE VERIDIANO, M.D.

Hello 2018 and hello all,

On behalf of the CMFAA officers board members , I would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to our outgoing president, Mr. Thomas Jourdan, for everything that he has done for the association the past two years.

I have seen CMFAA grow through different phases as I have seen my own children grow. In1993, CMFAA was the only organized group that served the Filipino-American families in Central Massachusetts area.

As the population of our ethnic group grew, so did the number of other Filipino-American associations in the area.

I remember meeting a few Filipinos during my daughter’s1st birthday party 22 years ago. Those new acquaintances at the time remain some of my very close friends to this day. Our kids grew up calling my friends “Tito” and “Tita”, and my friends treated them as true nieces and nephews. For about 10 years or so, our kids went to every single May Fiesta and children’s Christmas party. As our kids got older, they have stopped coming. Yet, they visit each other across the country, attend each other’s weddings, and still consider each other family – only connected by Filipino culture and heritage. Most of us older folks stuck around, and kept the association going, because we knew how powerful this community is.
