Hudson County Sheriff Juan M. Perez was proudly inducted as a “Knight of Rizal” at a recent ceremony conducted by the KOR New Jersey Chapter and Ladies for Rizal.

Dr. Jose Rizal is the national hero of the Philippines and pride of the Malay race, who courageously gave up his life at a very young age for the cause of liberty. Because of his great love for his country and its people his works and ideals endured and gave the Filipinos during his time a perfect start to build upon the foundation to fight for the freedom that was taken away from them and which was denied for over three hundred years.

Congratulations Brother Knight -
Sir Manny Pacquiao, Our Champion!
Sir Manny is an active member of Dapitan Chapter.  the greatest reigning boxer in the world was initiated into the fraternity last year. It was a big day for the chapter.  That day was a very memorable one not only because of Manny's membership,  but it was also the  unveiling of a group of statues depicting Dr. Jose Rizal's arrival on the Shore of Mindanao to begin his exile in July of 1892.

NJ General Assembly honors Filipino Express publisher
for leadership and community service

In an Assembly Resolution last Monday, the State Assembly, in observance of Asian-American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, said that Mr. Gajilan's "depth of knowledge and the breadth of his experience have immeasurably enhanced the success and acclaim of this enterprise." Furthermore, the resolution stated that Mr. Gajilan "established a model to emulate and set a standard of excellence toward which others might strive."

Mr. Gajilan founded the Filipino Express in 1986 and since then it  has become the most trusted Filipino-American community newspaper. In January 2009, it was the only Asian-American newspaper selected by the Senate Press Gallery to cover the historic presidential inauguration of Barack Obama. It has also covered big mainstream events such as the International Emmy Awards, and the Tribeca Film Festival.

Mr. Gajilan is also an active leader of the community being an esteemed member of the order of the Knights of Rizal and other civic organizations.
JERSEY CITY– The General Assembly of the State of New Jersey, headed by Assemblyman Chivukula,  honored Filipino Express publisher Lito Gajilan Jr. for his leadership and service to the Asian-American community in his capacity as proprietor and publisher of the esteemed newspaper.
Area Commander
Biggest Meeting Attendance Ever
The monthly general membership meeting held May 20 2011 at the Jersey City Diners in Jersey City was attended by 40 active members and several other guests.

"This is surprisingly the biggest number of members attending in any of our previous meetings" the Chapter Commander said. "Our hard work is paying off. We are more inspired to do more for the honor and recognition not only of our chapter but of us all"

Fiorello Salvo, a Knight and an active broadcast Journalist for more than 4 decades was tasked to speak on the subject "Effective Communication".

The 30 minute lecture was received with impressive and enthusiastic response from the audience. Fiorello was humbled by the warm applause and praises from fellow knights and guests.

His highly energized presentation inspired fellow Knight Carlos Sinnung, a veteran community leader, and invited him to speak on a similar subject before a group of students and community leaders in Passaic sometime next month.
Steve Fulop, a city councilman of Jersey City was the guest speaker. He was also sworn in as a new Knight later in the program. He said he is honored  to be a member of such a prestigious organization.

The members are grateful to the movers of the club.
