Urgent & Important: GEMSRO USA

By: Gilbert E. Paderogo

Due to unforeseen event (maintenance related) of the UFCW Auditorium on Saturday, August 18, 2018, where we are scheduled and normally hold our fiesta celebrations, we are moving the date to the following week, August 26, 2018, Sunday, at the same venue. With this, our family fun day, will be held a day earlier, on Saturday, August 25, 2018. Venue will be determined and announced later, and will be posted here.

I understand that some, if not a lot of you had already filed and planned your vacation, and took the necessary travel arrangements in order to attend our once a year gathering, our deepest apologies. We did not intend for this huge inconvenience. If only we can find another suitable venue that can accommodate us all, with a minimal cost, we will surely and gladly take it. But we all know, given the time constraints, that is simply not going to happen.

Along with this date change of our fiesta celebration, the dates of the novenas will change too, but will still start on a Wednesday, August 15, 2018, and will end Thursday, August 23, 2018. We will call the hosts to confirm availability again. Again, our apologies for this huge inconvenience. But we are all confident, that despite all these setbacks, we will joyfully celebrate the feast day of St. Joseph, along with our friends and family, and honor Him and His name. If anything, please call and leave a message, or text me at 714-322-8457. Sincerely.
