Chicago, 22 September 2021 – In collaboration with the Philippine Center of Minnesota (PCM), the Philippine Consulate General in Chicago conducted a consular outreach mission in Maplewood, Minnesota last Saturday, 18 September 2021.
The outreach team, headed by Consul Ryan Pondoc, provided a total of 234 consular services to Filipinos and Filipino-Americans who are based in Minnesota during the one-day activity.
During the event, Ms. Nikki Villavicencio, Maplewood City Council Member and a top advocate for persons with disabilities, dropped by the venue to visit the consular team and her constituents. She is a third-generation Filipino-American. Her grandfather, Celso Villavicencio, immigrated to the US from the Philippines in the 1920s as a physician.
This is the Consulate’s fourth outreach this year after Missouri, Ohio and Michigan.
