Last month I was fortunate to meet some lovely Filipinos and families from the Tweed Heads Filipino Support Group who provide a delicious morning tea every Sunday after Mass at St Joseph's Parish Tweed Heads.
The group have been together for almost 10 years and are still going strong with committee meetings held on the first Sunday of the month.
Actually where I live, there are two Filipinos in units adjoining mine, so I'm enjoying their friendly smiles and friendship too.
There are about 100 Filipinos and their children in the Tweed shire and they were part of the centenary celebrations of St Joseph's Parish hosting a High Tea at the South Tweed Sports Club with special guests, the Honourable Justine Elliott MP for Tweed Shire and the Mayor of Tweed.
It proved to be a huge success among the month-long celebrations for St Joseph's.
The Tweed Heads Filipino Support Group is also holding their annual Christmas party at the South Tweed Sports Club on Saturday December 8 with plenty of food, entertainment and friendship during the night. Cost $45 adults, $22.50 child U12 years.
