Word is floating about how people on the bus were over-charged. The bus trip cost a person $20.00/seat for a trip to/from Chicago and $15.00 for children. That is not overcharging.

However, one place where the – charge – may stick is with respect to the stop at the UniMart Filipino grocery store. Yes, there were problems with double-charging, mischarging etc at the UniMart. However, the UniMart and NEW Bayanihan have no formal connections and as such we are free to take our business elsewhere on our next trip. That is what we intend to do (unless the UniMart does something big to make up for the mishaps)

As far as people getting kicked off of the bus, well, that is what happens when people do not pay for their seat. Surely it is reasonable to bar those who do not pay from participating?

Carwash & Food!

Hey All!

On Saturday June 10 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm there is a carwash to benefit Rainbow Orphanage in Dumeguete City Philippines. NEW Bayanihan has been given permission to serve food at the event.

Come on out and buy some food, get your car washed or help out! Much better than staying at home wondering where the time went! Location is 505 W. Northland Ave Appleton Wisconsin. See you there! Will hammer this one!

Rumors of the Imminent Death of NEW Bayanihan.

In your dreams rumor-mongerers. NEW Bayanihan is alive, well, and planning for a great set of events.



The NEW Bayanihan snowball is finally gathering snow and growing!

Last night an executive committee meeting was held and not only was there participation and good feedback there was enthusiasm! Enthusiasm is catchy and our enthusiasm for this project has worn off onto others which in turn feedsback onto ourselves!

Yesterday we also met with a group working to raise funds for Rainbow Orphanage in Dumaguete City in the Philippines. We will work with and support this group in their goals and mission.

If you bop on over to the NEW Bayanihan website you may have seen a number of improvements and additions, what fuel we received yesterday. Farmers Market is well in hand. I do believe that will be a success, I pulled the application for the needed food permits and got the first one ready. The second one will follow!

*What was formerly known as The Quarterly Tsmiss will now become The NEW Bayanihan Balita News
*Someone stepped up to join our executive committee!
*Two volunteers will take the type-setting of the newsletter of my hands!
*Good ideas for the next bus trip: An overnighter!
*Volunteer meeting to be planned!

Watch out Northeastern Wisconsin!
