PRESS RELEASE

                                     “The Juniors and Seniors Prom 2018”

                                                    PAMANANG HANDOG KAY LOLO AT LOLA

 

The Philippine Community Center Services for Aging (PCCSA) is proud to present the Junior Seniors Prom 2018 to celebrate The Graying “FIL-AM” New Yorkers. As the FIL-AM "grays up" along with the world's elderly, this Juniors Seniors Prom focuses a "spotlight" on this transition process and tinges it with wise, balmy laughter and soothing hilarity of the whole Fil-Am community, one of the happiest peoples on earth. This is a bold and timely initiative to challenge all Filipino-American community organizations in the Tri-State area, to create strategies and follow-up action plans on numerous issues of aging Fil-Ams in their own family and  friends’ networks. 

 

This community approach emphasizes a shared mission with younger peoples’ groups and/or organizations and encourages intergenerational participation to instill and establish a culture change on Aging as a continuation of “life, fun and diversity,” thereby changing how Seniors and Elderly persons are viewed, treated, and eventually taken care of. In addition, we seek innovative ways on how to advocate for the well-being of all Fil-Am senior citizens.  

 

    Our Vision is an Inter-generational Approach to Aging through Community Approach to encourage Fil-Am organizations to share Spaces & Time where Senior and Younger persons interact, recall, and document their family and social histories, through song, dance, the arts, poetry, and drama as a literature for unique “Intergenerational Dialogues”.

 

    Our Mission is to celebrate the aging Fil-Ams, by creating family-like (“kapamilya”) connections & relations between Fil-Am young adults and Fil-Am seniors/elderly in a non-traditional, informal environmentwhile engaging in friendly, comfortable, “no-holds barred” conversations as a tool to “Preparing and Enjoying the Golden Years”This is a Special Tribute Pagbabalik Parangal”

to the Fil-Am seniors who have become unsung heroes, we honor them for their silent contribution to the development of our most valuable treasure, the Filipino-American families and communities. 

 

                      DATE: October 13, 2018/Saturday

                                VENUE: St., Patrick’s Church, 39-38 29th St, Long Island City, New York 11101

The Wisdom and Beauty of Aging --- Fil-AM Style (Vangie Lazaro)

 

As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself.. I've become my own friend.


I have seen too many dear friends leave this world, too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it, if I choose to read, or play, on the computer, until 4 AM, or sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 60 &70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love, I will.


I will walk the beach, in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves, with abandon, if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.
They, too, will get old.


I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And, I eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years, my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break, when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But, broken hearts are what give us strength, and understanding, and compassion. A heart never broken, is pristine, and sterile, and will never know the joy of being imperfect.


I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face.
So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.


As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself anymore.
I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert every single day (if I feel like it).
