Annual Citation of Feople in the Filipino Community
of Seattle Who Have Distinguished Themselves
in Some Activity During 1956
Somehow, somewhere and sometime during the year just
past, people had engaged in some activity which may and
may not have caught the attention of the general public. Or,
if such activity had been once or twice published in public
print, its glory and its glamour
had died with the drying of the
ink with which it was printed.
We wish to look back through
the 365 days of 1956 and try to
discover who among us have a
chieved something worthy of com
mendation and because of which
the person concerned deserves a
special mention.
It is a delicate task, and we are
the first to admit that our selec
tion is not without fault. But it is
the best within our recollection,
and here we offer it to our reading
public. no malice or harm intended.
Queen of the Year
With humility and with pardon
able pride, we nominate Shirley
Hart for this honor. For, during
1956 Shirley had worn the royal
crown twice . . .
fir st, in the
spring, w h e n
she was select
ed and crowned
Queen of the
Viennese Ba 11
at the Universi
ty of Washing

ond, when she
was elected
Muse of the Press and reigned as

niversary Banquet and Ball last
autumn
Scholar of the Year
We award this honor to Miss
Agnes Yambao who was the recipi
ent of a Weyer

sity of Denver.
where she is
now pursuing a
course leading
to 3. master's
degree in soci
ology. Agnes is
the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Jesus Yambao, 13:

i and is on the
; Retaining Com
mittee of the
Garfield High School P-TA. These
are just a few of the many civic
activities in which Mrs. Escame
has identified herself.
Woman of the Year
During 1956 the person that ren
dered the most services unselfish
ly for the benefit of her country
men and the enhancement of the
na m e Filipino
is Mrs. Joseph
lne Brillantes.
wife of former
eattle Consul
Seattle Consul
Horte n c i o
J . Brillantes.
W e remember
Mrs. Brillante:
going out of
her way and
lending a hand to the Philippine
Navy officers and men who were
In Seattle early in the year. She
did the same to the Philippine del
egates to the International Trade
Fair In Seattle mt spring. Her

Mrs. Brillantes was a familiar face
at all social and civic affairs of the
Filipino community, always help
ing one way or another, even dur
ing the absence of Consul Bril
lantes.
Singer of the Year
People who went to the Interna
tional Trade Fair here last spring
ha v e noticed

the official en
tertainment pro

songs and modern Filipino compo

ences. Who else could surpass her
in 1956 ?
Musician of the Year
Prof. Emilio Bonsilau, teacher
of guitar, who has his studio at
the Fisc he :-
Bldg., easily
captures th i s
honor. During
the Internation
al Trade Fair
here last spring
Prof. Bonsilau
headed a string
trio that played
nightly at the
Fair. T h e
other two were American musi
cians.
Organizer of the Year
For organizing two lodges in
this region in 1956, the distinction
of “Organizer

should go to
Mr. Florentino
Saldivar. He or
ganized the Ev
angelista Lodge
(of S e a 1; t 1 e )
and the Gen.

Bremerton) un
der the banner
of the Caballeros de Dimas Alang,
Inc. Mr. Saldivar has also earned
the commendation of the fraterni
ty's grand master, Mr. Celestine
T. Alfafara.
Hostess of the Year
We do not hesitate'to name Mrs.
Celia Fabico as the “Hostess of the
Year." During 1956, Mrs. Fabico
had entertained many visitors to
mu“, ....w.. w
Seattle, either
passing thru or
temporarily re

doh-gates and some prominent vis
itors from the Philippines. People
that are leaving for long vaca-
hung in the homeland had also
been entertained by the Fabicoa.
Mrs. Fabico has the reputation of
being a perfectionist in the art of
entertaining; and her culinary lklll
is also second to none.
