Pinays Manitoba officers and members met on March 19 at Max’s Restaurant to discuss preparations for its upcoming event, the Pinays Manitoba Recognition Luncheon scheduled on May 28 at the PCCM.
It was also an opportunity for members to meet again in person after two years of virtual meetings. During the membership meeting, two Pinays, Alice Robles and Marita Salazar, won two tickets each to watch Lea Salonga’s concert on April 6 at the Club Regent Casino.
On May 28, five outstanding Filipino women will receive the Pinays Manitoba Trailblazer Award. From 2016 to 2020, Pinays Manitoba has given this recognition to a number of very deserving Filipino women.
Founded and incorporated in January 2016, Pinays Manitoba aspires to provide a resource within the community to assist and guide Filipino women of all ages. One of its objectives is to honour Filipino women – trailblazers who have made outsta nding contributions to the community.
