Rose Churma spent her last day as president of the Filipino Community Center on Friday, wrapping up two years of service that increased activities and programs.

Churma stepped down — her term doesn’t lapse until the end of the month — to travel and spend more time with family.  “It’s time to move on,” Churma, 62, said.

After almost two years at the helm of the FilCom Center in Waipahu, Churma said she will continue to be involved in the community to promote Filipino culture.

In March 2012, Churma succeeded Geminiano “Toy” Arre, who is credited with instituting multiple programs for youth and seniors. Arre will serve as interim president until a new one is selected.
