Humphrey (Philippines) Event: Another Big Success
Friday, 15 April 2016

The Hubert H. Humphrey Alumni Association (Philippines) hosted an SRO screening/showing of the acclaimed independent film “General Luna” at the Senate of the Philippines as part of the Humphrey Turon Special series. Humphrey fellows and friends from UP-Los Banos, US Embassy Manila, Ilocos Norte and the Philippine-American Educational Foundation enthusiastically watched the movie. Humphrey Alumni Association President, Att. Arnel Bañas – deputy secretary of the Senate of the Philippines, and HHHAA Board secretary, Ms. Suh Putli Samanodi- Candao, secretary of two Senate Committees coordinated the successful event. The guests (most of whom were first-time visitors at the Senate of the Philippines) received a tour of the Senate of the Philippines, including the Senate Session Hall, the Senate Museum, and the roof deck (with the original intent to appreciate the sunset). A feast was the fitting way to end a delightful afternoon. IHOP, Office of Senator Lapid, Blue Food Bar, and Applebee sponsored some of the refreshments served.
