A group of IV-1 peps yesterday held a lunch meeting to finalize the plans for our July reunion. Those who gathered at Keith dela Cruz’s cozy dig in Antipolo were George Hizon, Ruby Gaviola, Gil Buan, Remy Tuazon and Jo Monte de Ramos.
A decision not to elect a set of officers was made so as to make the celebration of our 30th anniversary a real collective effort.
The reunion date is set for July 12-13, 2008. Jo will be inquiring about a resort in Calamba, Laguna, after the Holy Week. An ocular inspection of the place will be done by a team before it is finally approved by April.
In looking for and deciding on the suitability of the venue, it is very important that we know how many persons are attending. May we request you therefore to relay to Remy (via text or email) how many guests you are bringing in tow?
Meanwhile, Gil has finally got in touch with our dear classmate Merle Salvador-Belmi. Merle, the one responsible for clinching the venue for our 1988 reunion in Batangas, was able to talk with the peps during yesterday’s meeting and informed everyone that she and her family are now based in Baguio City. We will write more about Merle soon.
As for the other classmates, we really have to work double time to find them. Eric Macatangay has just confirmed he will be in Manila this week and reiterated his promise to help in this undertaking.
Lastly, those present at the meeting also agreed to attend the LDHS grand reunion this April in Quezon City. Just coordinate with them if you want to go there as a group.
Watch for more announcements and please don’t hesitate to forward your questions and suggestions. All hands on deck, peps!
