Due to current stay-at-home orders in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, we are postponing any trips from Chicago to Ohio for the unforeseeable future. We’re hopeful that we might be able to see some of you by sometime in May, but we’re taking a wait-and-see approach. We know of many folks who are planning to ship balikbayan boxes. Please know that we are as anxious as you are to get your boxes on their way to the Philippines…as soon as it’s safe to do so. Please stay well!     –Sherry and Jeff
