Always I been involved with my Portuguese Community in NJ by helping with there events and Palm Coast since 2000. I do remember the days, when the club was small with few members. Members would get together on Friday nights to prepare the things for next day event. 2019 -I did peel hundred of potatoes. Even before, I did move to Flagler County. I enjoyed to be involved at multi projects.
Special volunteer as Portuguese instructor to children at PACC school at the club over 4 years. To me it’s important to keep the cultural heritage alive and live. “Portuguese is usually listed as the sixth most natively spoken language in the world, the third-most spoken European language in the world in terms of native speakers.” Portuguese people are proud of their cultural heritage.
Today, I can‘t think of anything better than really good warm times, I’ve had with Flagler County Portuguese community. Today we can say it’s a much larger community. Flagler Portuguese community should take immense pride for their committed, engaged and fellowship you provide to everyone you meet. Specialty to the Portuguese Day celebration, annual flag-raising ceremony launched to represent our diversity.
One of the things that I love so much about the Flagler Portuguese community, is there envelopment by fundraising funds for scholarships. These scholarships help with the future education of Portuguese heritage children. One of our largest sponsor are the Amaral Foundation.
I’m so proud of Juventude Do PACC , you are one amazing group of young Ladies and Young Men who recognize the importance of Portuguese language and culture are the strongest links that unite the Portuguese people by connecting them to the country of origin. And you all foster the Portuguese language and culture by participating at rancho folclorico, and volunteer many countless hours that you all invest at Portuguese Culture Center. You all are an indescribable asset to our community, by holding onto Portuguese cultural and heritage.
At Festa Do Fim de Verao you all came together and organized exceptional party, you all serve the guest with professionalism and with a big smile. Everyone did have fabulous time by supporting an amazing cause. I do hope you met your fundraising goal.
A special thank to all who participate at this event. 2019
