PENDLETON — Food and fun was plentiful during the Eastern Oregon Philippine American Community family picnic.

Held Aug. 3 at Pendleton’s Community Park, EOPAC president Noemi Wiseman said the annual gathering is always enjoyable. In addition to an abundance of food, Wiseman said those in attendance participated in conversation, outdoor activities and parlor games.

“It is always a great get-together as it continues to bind members of the group as well as their supportive families and friends,” she said. “Back home we do have close family ties.”
