Acceptance speech of our beloved president
Ugyon Janiuaynon 2013 Induction Night
November 2, 2013
Ramada Plaza Hotel, New Jersey


Mga Kasimanwa, mga Kababayan, mga Bisita
Maayong Gab-i sa sa inyo nga tanan.

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen… and my warm greetings to our honored guests.

I am very honored to be standing before you tonight as the President of JANA – the Janiuay Association in North America.

I have to admit that I was hesitant to accept this position at first. I was concerned that I may not live up to the expectations and obligations of being president of our hometown association. But I was touched by the faith and trust that you gave me. I am very humbled and will respond to this call with patience and perseverance, as I learn the ropes, the nuts and bolts of leadership. Be assured that I will take this responsibility seriously and not lightly, with courage and not with fear, with transparency and not with hidden agendas.

On behalf of the 2013 JANA officers, I thank all of you for coming to support us and make this 3rd induction program memorable and inspiring. 

I would also like to thank our distinguished guests for
gracing us with their presence and messages tonight. We appreciate your sincere expression of unity and solidarity with us, as Filipinos in the United States.

I also would like to acknowledge the efforts of my fellow officers, who planned and worked together to make this event possible. Tonight, let us celebrate our heritage as Janiuaynons and Filipinos, and enjoy each other. Ugyon Janiuaynon…Together, we can do great things.

Finally, I would like to recognize my predecessors who paved the way for all of us, to get together, unite and engage in work that benefitted all of us here, our kasimanwa all over the world and our beloved hometown in Janiuay.

May I now call on Mr. Benedicto “Ike” Buscar and Mr. Raul “Bodol” Tirador.

Thank you and let us keep JANA united and alive.
Ugyon Janiuaynon! Mabuhay!

Ugyon Janiuaynon, Sige Kita Padayon! 2011

  

“Bayanihan”, 1962,  a painting by our National Artist Carlos “Botong” Francisco
   
Bayanihan is a Filipino term taken from the word bayanreferring to a nation, country, town or community. The whole term bayanihan refers to a spirit of communal unity or effort to achieve a particular objective (-Wikipedia). Bayanihan can also be taken from the root word bayani meaning "hero". Thus bayanihan means being a hero or heroine to one another. This painting is so meaningful to us, JANA (and to Janiuaynons all over the world) that we made it as our cover of our current journal, Ugyon Janiuaynon 2011.

Ugyon Janiuaynon, Sige Kita Padayon!
Unite Janiuaynons, Let us Move On!



Ugyon Janiuaynon! 2009
“Pista sa Nayon" or "Fiesta”, 1947, by our National Artist Carlos “Botong” Francisco
