The families and town mates of the founder of the San Roque Church in Sampaloc, Manila, Philippines, will celebrate the 7th year of San Roque Town fiesta in America in San Fernando Valley on Friday, August 15, 2008.

This was announced by the families of the founder Don Pedro Cabal-Socorro and Dona Francisca Jacinto-Socorro through their daughters Penafrancia Socorro-Salas and Eladia S. Espiritu.
