On Feb. 15, 2014, a day after Valentine’s day, the Pangasinan Group of Manitoba celebrated the PGM Valentine’s Ladies Night at Canton Food Gallery at the corner Logan Avenue and McPhillips Street.

The place was decorated with heart-shaped balloons and red-and-white ribbons, while the sound of nostalgic music added a romantic atmosphere to the occasion.

The celebration dedicated to the ladies was enjoyed by everyone present with a buffet dinner, a short speaking program, games and dances.

PGM adviser Orlando Buduhan emceed the occasion and led the opening prayer.

All ladies present were presented with roses by their husbands, and the PGM directors gave roses to those ladies with no partners. As I am current president of PGM, my wife Cecilia and I were proclaimed Mr. and Mrs. Valentine of the night by the board of directors.

Every participant enjoyed parlour games including a spot dance, carrot dance and statue dance and prizes were awarded to winners after each game. Dancing  until midnight followed the games. Closing remarks were delivered by past president Rowena Oquendo, who thanked everyone who came and shared in the celebration.

Among the distinguished visitors present were Kevin Lamoureux, MP for Winnipeg North, Aida Champagne and Atty Dexter Lacanilao.

"Since this is the first time our association celebrates Valentine’s Day, we look forward to a more successful romantic celebration next year," said Benjamin  Ahoro, a past PGM president.
