PH Consul General Jalando-on Louis Ends Sydney Assignment

BY RICHARD FORD – The Alliance of Philippine Community Organisations Inc. (APCO) was one of the strings of Philippine community clubs who held a farewell function to thank Consul General Anne Jalando-on Louis for her support and encouragement during her tenure in Sydney.

The Consul-General was accompanied by her husband Dr. Gerard Joseph Louis during a “despedida” banquet meal  tendered for her  at the Jade Crystal Restaurant in the Marconi Club at Bossley Park last 19th May 2017.

Some 30 members attended by APCO Inc.led by its president Mrs. Pet Storey. Overwhelmed by the gestures, Consul-General Anne said, “I am thankful for the support during my term, and I am also grateful for the help given me. I ask you to continue serving the Community, as you and I both have a job  we love doing it, that is serving one another.”
After the meal,  various messages were given by officers of the Visayan Association of Australia Inc. (VAA) Jhun Salazar and the President of Fil-Oz Liverpool Inc. Cora Bojarski and  President of APCO Inc. Pet Storey.

ConGen Anne Jalando-on Louis was also presented with some beautiful Australian mementoes  including set of plates with Australian icons engraving and embedded on a blue outer Bavarian glass plate with the APCO Logo. Her husband, Dr. Gerard Louis was also presented a large plate with the typical etching of an Australian Rural Homestead.

A touching present were six red roses, for every year of  her posting in News South Wales.  She was also asked to blow  and cut a celebratory cake.

A surprise visitor to the occasion was Ms. Classic Global United International Robbie Canner made possible by FilOz Association president Mrs Cora Bojarski, to publicise the  project Classic Ambassador and Lifetime Queen.

It was indeed a “An Evening with Con Gen Anne Jalando-on Louis” to remember after rendering 6  IN Sydney.  BY RICHARD FORD.
