Dear Friends,
I would like to welcome Consul General Mario DeLeon, Jr. of the Philippines to Ocean City for our 5th Annual Tribute to the Philippines. On Saturday, I will have the pleasure of discussing Ocean City’s on-going Sister-City relationship with San Jose Occidental Mindoro of the Philippines with the Consul General. 
The tribute to the Philippines will be Saturday and Sunday in the loggia area of the Music Pier.  Admission is free, and the hours are from 9 a.m. till 4 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. The tribute includes an exhibition of Filipino crafts, products, and packaged food, plus information about the Country, along with entertainment featuring Filipino dancers, singers and instrumentalists. Filipino nurses will also provide free blood pressure and sugar level readings.
Also on Sunday, Filipino physicians, nurses and health specialists will present a free Vim, Vigor and Longevity Health Expo in the Senior Center, 17th and Simpson Ave., from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This will include health assessments such as Body Mass Index, Lung Capacity, Blood Pressure/Glucose Testing, Blood Cholesterol Testing, plus a taste of Vegan Treats and more. 
I am proud to continue this ongoing partnership, and the City of Ocean City warmly welcomes Consul General Mario DeLeon, Jr. and all of our Sister-City partners. I hope everyone has the opportunity this weekend to participate in this culturally enriching experience. 
Warm regards,
Jay A. Gillian
