HERE'S an excerpt from the Hernando Today article:
WEEKI WACHEE — Maria Busque was born in the Philippines, lived among other Filipinos for years in Canada and California, but she never felt the urge to join a club with others who shared her ethnicity until she moved to Florida. “Everybody here is friendly,” Busque, who was still chewing the last bit of food she had eaten during Saturday’s cookout. “I love the activities. We are very active in the community. Here, you have to give back. “In California, it was totally different,” she continued. “You felt like an outsider.” The Hernando County Philippine-American Association celebrated the 109th Philippine Independence Day Saturday at Linda Pedersen Park.
