  • We are born and bred Manila residents. We are so proud to say that our hometown was MANILA during our formative years (1942-65) and we will always be "proud former residents" of this great city.

    Over the past few years, We have watched the Mayor and city Council do great things in the city, ranging from city clean-up of "eye-sore" properties to construction of much needed youth activity centers such as the " swimming pool" project.

    Equally and pehaps more importantly, We have watched the city of Manila continually honor the veterans that have served, fought and in some cases, given their life for the freedom that we all continue to enjoy.

    From city management to individuals such as Donna Jackson, folks that give their all to the continued development of the city as well as the remembrance events that honor our Military Veterans, We say "Thank you" for your service and diligance in making Mania, AR "A Place apart", a place that makes both its present and former residents proud to say "this is out Hometown"


    John and Pat Ellis,
