On the other hand, Vice Consul Tanya Faye O. Ramiro, who represented the Philippine Consulate General in New York, said, “It has been more than 121 years since we have transcended our colonial past, and Filipinos, wherever they may be in the world, are now making their own history.” Cheers of “Mabuhay!” concluded the ceremony.
The yearly commemoration of Philippine Independence Day, in the very premises of the town hall of Greenwich, CT, is a testament, indeed, to the enduring friendship of the Philippines and the United States.
