|The LFR and KOR Bonn Chapter at their booth|
The Ladies for Rizal and Knights of Rizal Bonn Chapter continued with their long standing tradition of engagement in the Bonner Internationales Begegnungsfest on Saturday, 25 June 2011. Continuous drizzles and rain notwithstanding, the LFR and KOR set up their Food booth and Information Corner and was ready for business shortly before 11am. All throughout the day, traditional Filipino dishes, German cakes and hot/cold drinks were being served by the Ladies and Knights to its patrons. The Information Corner alternately played Filipino/modern music, and videos highlighting the life of the Philippine national hero, Dr Jose Rizal on the occassion of his 150th birth anniversary. The Ladies and Knights took the opportunity to explain about Rizal to visitors who were interested on learning more about him and the association.

When the tents were finally dismantled after closing hours, the organisation had successfully managed to earn much more than they expected on a rainy festival. Almost all the food were sold out! The LFR and KOR would like to thank everyne who patronised their booths, reminding them that the income from the Begegnungsfest will be dedicated for the organisation's projects in the Philippines. We look forward to seeing all of you again next year!
