The FACC at Rizal Community Center has belonged to the Lakeview neighborhood since 1974! In celebration, we're gathering pictures and stories from our community! We'd love to hear the fond recollections of those who called the Rizal Community Center "home" throughout the years. The stories you share with us about your involvement with us move, inspire, and motivate us. Those stories should be told and we're telling them here.
We'd love to hear what the Filipino American Council of Greater Chicago means to you and our community.
Tell us your Rizal Center story. Do you have a photo* or two of yourself that you'd like to share? Let us know if you have photographs that will help tell your story. We know your photographs are precious, so we can scan them and return the originals to you. Your story will be able to be shared with generations to come..
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll get back to you as soon as we can to hear the rest of the story!
Please note that we may edit your story for clarity and our own editorial guidelines. For example, this might mean your title will be changed or certain language will be removed. If we’ve made significant enough changes, we’ll run it by you first. We don’t want to misrepresent your voice or message.
*Photos and stories may be displayed on the our Facebook page, gallery exhibit, website, or for promotional purposes of the Rizal Community Center and FACC throughout the year. For this reason, if you submit photos of children, they only include your own. Thank you!
The Rizal Community Center is more than a building. It's a revitalized way of thinking about who we are and how we engage with our community, our neighborhood, and our city. Our presence in the global diaspora. It is a welcoming, dynamic place for people of all backgrounds to come together to celebrate the rich blend and vibrancy of Philippine and Philippine American arts and cultures., and its intersections with diverse ethnicities and cultures., to be part of community..
