Our Association regularly hold various projects and events. These activities are primarily aimed not only at increasing and promoting unity and goodwill amongst our members, but also to raise funds to help others especially our fellow Nagbukelans.
Beauty is in the eyes of the sons and daughters of Nagbukel! We conduct beauty pageants not only to show off our adorable and charming ladies, but also to be able to raise funds for our honorable cause.
Join us during the yuletide season in singing Christmas carols to make the holidays more merry and joyful! Members are encouraged to form caroling groups to sing Christmas songs or "noels". It's fun and exciting to visit fellow SD Nagbukelans and sing hymns like "Adeste Fidelis" (O come all ye faithful)!
Other forms of events are held from time to time. Please be sure to check our website for announcements of upcoming events.
"Your kind contribution will go a long way towards helping others help themselves"
