Isn’t it amazing how time flies?
In 2014 we achieved yet another milestone in PAAET history. PAAET celebrated its 30th year anniversary. PAAET was started by a small group of Filipino-Americans met each other during the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville.
PAAET was created primarily to bring the Filipino-American community together. Together we enhance friendship and fellowship among the Filipino-American families in Knoxville and surrounding counties. We participate in local and regional events to preserve and exercise the Filipino culture and traditions.
