What happens in Vegas

We are sharing here a coverage of the special reunion held by our  friends from the United States and Canada on November 21 at Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas. The event was attended by 31 alumni and guests, the biggest LDHS-related gathering so far organized by  North America-based graduates.

IV-1 class, Batch ’77

Here’s the class picture of our kuyas and ates in high school. This is Batch ’77’s  IV-1 class, to which Remy Tuazon’s sister, Bernadette, and Eric Macatangay’s brother, Robespeare, belong. (Please click photo to enlarge.)

Notice that their teachers would also become ours in our senior year, with the only difference that their class adviser was our Pilipino teacher, Mrs. Agapita Correa (of the napakagandang-pangungusap-pakiulit-mo-nga fame), while ours was Mrs. Fe Calope-Lomantas.

There are more familiar faces, including Eufrocino Pia, the first guy in the top row, who used to be Eddie Roberto’s neighbor in Juan Luna.

We would like to thank Annie Winda Barros-Mojica for posting this photo on the LDHS Alumni Network.

Worthy project

The irrepressible members of Batch ’79 got together again recently, this time not just to enjoy each other’s company but to launch a worthy project never done before.

On November 6 they all thronged to the LDHS campus and held a medical mission. “A big success,” thus quipped Elena Lopez to describe their batch’s activity, in an e-mail she sent to us. “The new principal, the teachers, and the students were all happy to avail themselves of the services we offered, and they told us we were the first group to do such a project.”

Following up on our previous post, Keith as model, did you know that several peps were inspired to have their photos taken for consideration in future castings? The spur-of-the-moment pictorial took place during the despedida for Lito Parungo, where, over dinner, Keith dela Cruz shared his first experience as a print model. Challenged, those listening to his story averred they could also do it.

We therefore present to you our classmates in their best element.
