Guam - The island is celebrating the contributions of the Filipino community. At Adelup this morning Governor Eddie Calvo signed a proclamation declaring the month of June as Philippine Independence Month.  The governor recognized how the Philippines is growing not only in terms of its economy but also in its relationship with the United States. He also noted the prosperity in the Philippines has a direct impact locally in terms of investments. Calvo also talked about the close relationship Guam has had with the Philippines over the years saying we're family.

Philippine consul general of Guam Bayani Mangibin said, "You have highlighted the intensified relationship with the Philippines and the united states but for us we deeply appreciate the greater relationship between the Philippines and Guam we really feel that we are not staying in another place but we feel that we are staying in a place that really I say home and this has became home for us because of the warmth and welcome and recognition being provided by this government."

Several events are scheduled to commemorate the anniversary of Philippine independence.
