The Clarence Valley Filipino-Australian Community Club Inc. will be celebrating the country’s Independence Day this Saturday June 16 at the Community Centre, Duke Street, Grafton.
This year marks the 120th Philippine Independence Day and celebrates the anniversary of the proclamation of the Philippine Independence Day from the Spaniards on 12 June, 1898.
The group wishes to invite the community to join in their celebrations and to experience their culture; food, music and dances and Filipino tradition.
Doors will open at 11am with the programme commencing at 12 noon.
Admission is $10 (for non-members) and children 5-12 years old $5.
There will also be a raffle and prizes.
Around 300 people attended last year’s celebrations, so make sure you don’t miss this colourful celebration of Filipino culture.

Now you’re here …… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.
If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
