Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of Fred Bertulfo the 1989 SCV Fil-Am President. That started back in 1978 when Fred, his wife Aurora, daughter Aileen and son Alfred, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley, now the City of Santa Clarita. No malls! No sports complexes! No traffic, not even a Chuck E. Cheeses back then. Like Robinson Crusoe, Santa Clarita was as small and primitive as a town can be.
The Bertulfo Family was involved with Fil-Am from the beginning. Fred was one time an officer and a member of the Board. Then in 1989, Fred was elected Pesident. During his term, he kept the Association in a solid financial condition by conducting fund raising activities such as trips to CBS Studio and Las Vegas. These are the highlights of Fred's term:
First time Induction Ball was held, a Valentine Dinner Dance
SCV Pride Week participating in clean up of Heritage Park
July 4th Parade - 2nd Place Float Fraternal and Civic Organization Award
Filipino Cultural Exhibit at the Valencia Library
Membership of Fil-Am of SCV increased a lot during his year
As the Santa Clarita Valley continued to change and expand, so did the Bertulfos. Currently, Fred a CPA, MBA, is retired from the Department of Water and Power and is now involved in a tax and financial planning pratice.
He was appointed by the City of Santa Clarita to the Board of the Santa Clarita Valley International Program (Sister Cities International).
His wife Aurora, MSN RN, is a retired nurse from Valley Care Olive View-UCLA Medical Center and can be found freelancing there from time-to-time.
During Fred and Aurora's free time, they love to travel, play golf, volunteer for church ministries, and play with all of their grandkids,
