Panlilio To Grace Aguman Capampangan’s 20th Anniversary

September 27th, 2010 · No Comments

Aguman Capampangan of Australia Inc.  (ACAI) will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary on 30 October 2010 at Blacktown RSL, Blacktown.

To assist in the anniversary celebrations, former Pampanga Governor Eddie Panlilio will be flying into Sydney to grace the occasion.

Former Governor Ed Panlilio, who is being flown to Sydney courtesy of Philippine Airlines, gained his reputation when he crossed the line of church and state to run as governor of Pampanga vowing to stomp out corruption.  His transition from priesthood to become the 26th governor of Pampanga in May 2007 brought along controversy and saw his suspension from his 15-year ministry.

However, he was determined to run for office and ushered in a “new dawn in Philippine Politics.”   Most noted of his many achievements included The Quarry Tax; his assistance to the victims of Mt. Pinatubo eruption; spearheading of micro-lending programs – all of which led the Daily Enquirer to honour him with the prestigious title of “2007 Filipino of the Year”.

Panlilio’s presence will add meaning to the Aguman anniversary. Panlilio will also be attending other functions during his stay in Sydney.

The Capampangans have been active in promoting the provinces of Pampanga and Tarlac. They were first in staging the ‘Food Festival’ featuring the many tastes of the region and have maintained scholarship projects for the area over the years.

Aguman Capampangan celebrates their 20th Anniversary of existence in Australia and the invitation is extended to the Filipino community.
