The induction of the first newly elected officers and Christmas-Family dinner was held at the Regency Inn, 5319 W. Diversey, December 19, 1992. The affairs also coincide with the launching of the association first fund raising venture dubbed Project "TABANG" OR "HELP" to benefit the Zamboanga del Norte Emergency Hospital, Dipolog  City, Philippines. Worthy of mentioning was the $170.oo donation to the tornado victims of Upper Disakan, Manukan, Zamboanga del Norte  and Siparok, Jose Dalman, Zamboanga del Norte.
The Association is now on the eighth term. The horizon is rosy. The officers are fraught with enthusiasm, new ideas and noble projects. And the members are ever willing to help, to cooperate, to work.
