Kakabsat, Kabagian, ken Gagayyem,
On behalf of UCHS Class '71, I
would like to express my sincerest appreciation to everyone who
contributed to the success of the multi-high school reunion. The event
would not be as successful if not for the enthusiastic support,
camaraderie and overwhelming response. I would like to publicly thank
several people: from Class '71 my partner Elijah, George and Jane
Ruiz, Rene and Thelma Agustin for their dedication and hardwork,
Edward Ataop and Elizabeth Bongolan-Ataop for being Class '71's
strongest link, Vic Badar and Remy Tablada-Badar for their unselfish
support to the club, Rosie Queyquep-Percell, Flor Fabro, Alice
Lapena-Cacayuran, Gerry Casison, Marie Tabayoyong-Balacy, Digna
Mepa-Madrid, Esther Ceralvo-Diaz, John and Santee Galinato, and Rey
Calivo for their assistance to ensure the success of the party.
Several friends outside of the organization were vital to the
unforgettable outcome of the event. Johnny Soriano, the city's
strongest link, contacted more people than anyone I know and sold the
most number of tickets. Thank you Manangs Vicky de Gala-Calacsan,
Edith Bergado-Sison, Nanie Soriano-dela Cruz, Simeon Calacsan, Jhunn
Alejandro, and Roselilly Morales-Jacob. Many thanks to Class '65 and
'70 for their monetary donations, and Jun Bergado for the roast pigs.
Both the dinner/dance and potluck party were well attended and some
did not want either parties to end.
dinner dance was videotaped from beginning to end. If you want copies
of the event on DVD, please call me, or George/Jane Ruiz to reserve
your copy. But before we put it all together, I would like to ask for
copies of your old class pictures from high school days so we can
insert them into the program. Deadline for submission is August 15.
Please send your pictures to 5553 Conner Drive, Oxnard, CA 93033.
Again, many, many thanks to all for attending and sharing us a reunion
to all Urdanetanians!
