Media Advisory: Parliamentary Secretary Davis to Attend Celebration of the Philippine Independence Day

Bernard Davis, Parliamentary Secretary for Service NL, will bring greetings at a celebration of Philippine Independence Day beginning at 8:30 a.m., Sunday, June 10, in the Foran Room, St. John’s City Hall.

Independence Day in the Philippines, or Araw ng Kasarinlan, is also known as the Day of Freedom and is observed on June 12. It commemorates the Philippines’ independence from Spain. This day is celebrated by Filipinos around the world with flag-raisings, parades, fireworks, and time with family and friends.

This year, the Provincial Government released the first annual Diversity Calendar, meeting a key commitment in The Way Forward on Immigration in Newfoundland and Labrador to publicly acknowledge cultural holidays and events.
