Rey Umlas organizing in Filipino community
My long-time friend and former colleague Rey Umlas (right) has been working hard for Vision in the Filipino community, building on his record of service with a number of community organizations. Many Sundays he helps out with the regular dances organized by groups like the Philippine New Era Society, as he did July 14. Rey, who retired recently after a successful career as a staff representative for the Hospital Employees Union, has announced his intention to seek a Vision council nomination, which is good news. He’s one of the outstanding leaders in his community.
