We Did It Again! Fil-Am won First Place for Best Float for Non-Commercial Float Category at the July 4th Parade!

Yes indeed, Fil-Am Association of SCV, Inc. won again First Place for the Best Float for Non-Commercial Float!

"Decorating the float was a labor of love and that's why the win is well-deserved", says past President Fred Bertulfo, the host of this year's parade.

This year's theme was "Celebrating America's Independence, The Santa Clarita Way, Live, Work and Play!". Chairperson Bert Salon shared that he and Committee members Jackie Martinez, Mul Tayoba, Myra Miranda, Nic Montebon, Jr. and Alexis Riguerra came up with an amazing idea of featuring professionals as parade walkers and family having picnic on the float which clearly depicts how Filipinos celebrate America, committed and proud professionals while keeping family as the center of their lives.

The float was decorated by Fil-Am volunteers and recipients of this year's Jose Rizal Academic Achievement Award. And on parade day, several volunteers showed up. They walked for an hour proudly representing the Filipino community. They cheered and engaged the crowd with their patriotic music, and energetic dancing. It was such a wonderful experience, no wonder, they won!
