One of PAMANA’s mission is to foster unity and harmony among members and the community at large through participation in social activities. It has been a wonderful day for a dozen PAMANA members and friends as they got together on the first day of Fall for a road trip to Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The group went to the EAA Aviation Museum and marveled at aviation innovations with a collection of more than 200 historic aircraft. They feasted on a Boodle lunch at Manila Resto — a first of its kind restaurant in the Fox Valley offering a fusion of Filipino, Asian and American dishes. After lunch, the group enjoyed the Paine Art Center and Gardens - a preserved historic estate listed on the National Register of Historic Places for a personal guided tour of the mansion and gardens, and taking a glimpse of the Louis Comfort Tiffany treasures from the Driehaus collection. Their trip ended with a quick stop at the Outlet Shoppes and a merienda of halo-halo to go from Manila Resto. Thanks to Manila Resto owner Marlo Ambas for welcoming PAMANA at his restaurant and the sumptous meal. Thanks to participants Rina Courtier, Mary Ann McGann, Romy Castillo, Janette Jordee, Tim Jordee, Nenita Marañon, Chris Santos-Lang, Jenny Ybañez, Noli Ybañez, William Elliott, and tour organizers Ruchelle Elliott and Marechiel Santos-Lang for the company and a fun day! Shout out to William for driving the the passenger van. The PAMANA Day Trip to Oshkosh is a project of the PAMANA Membership & Communications Committee.
