Lakbay Dangal picks officers

10 February 2019

The new Lakbay Dangal officers.

A group dedicated to promoting the study of Philippine heritage and history, especially in relation to Hong Kong, has reorganized and elected a new set of officers this year.

Lakbay Dangal, founded nearly nine years ago by fashion executive Sonia Zerrudo, will now be led by one of its original members Cecilia Eduarte, as president.

Also elected on Jan 27 were: Marites Palma, vice-president; Victoria Reyes Munar, secretary; Emma Ruth Gamido, treasurer; Jhoan C. Buendia, auditor; George Manalansan, Elpidia Abel and Mercedes Jaen, PROs. The committee heads are: Terry Ann Jimenez, Eva Gutierrez and Liza Marcelino, education and training; Teresa Tiffany Carbonell, Madelia Galve, programs.

Acting as advisers along with Zerrudo are community leaders Alex Aquino and Gurley Payne. At least two other Filipino professionals based in Hong Kong are said to have been invited to join the new board of advisers.

Lakbay Dangal, which uses the feminist color purple in its costumes and emblems, has distinguished itself for the walking tours it conducts for Filipinos and tourists, particularly at the different sites in Central where Philippine national hero Jose Rizal lived and worked.

One of its earliest achievements was winning the top prize in the historical tableaux contest held during the Philippine Independence Day celebration on Chater Road, sponsored by the Philippine Consulate.- DCLM
