I sent an email to Mike re the highlights of the batch meeting last July 19 at Violeta's place for him to solicit comments from those who are in the US, Canada and Australia. This morning I got an overseas call from him telling me to post the highlights in the blogsite. There were some minor deviations from the first agreements since we considered the comments we got .
We are still soliciting your suggestions, comments and reactions since all these are not final yet.
The batch meeting last Sunday, July 19 was attended by 15 batch members. We had a long discussion of the various activities lined up for the Reunion of the Decade . We considered the comments we got from the US based members as well as the comments and suggestions of the locals here. As a result there were some changes :
1.Schedules (Two Days Big Affairs)
Jan. 16 Saturday
8:00-9:00 A M --------------Thanksgiving Mass
9:00-5:00 PM --------------Batch Picnic with Families , Mans Forest Resort, Limay
Jan. 17 Sunday
AM-------------------------Visit to Gawad Kalinga in Daan Pare, Orion
PM------------------------- Dinner Dance, Raven Resort, Abucay
( Those who would opt to stay overnight at the
resort can do so.)
Jan. 18 Monday
Other small group activities may be planned .
2. Others :
--There was a suggestion that the food for the picnic shall no longer be "Pot Luck". The food committee will canvass the cost of catering for 100 persons . This arrangement was arrived at considering the hassles of cooking and bringing
food and the utensils to be used and also the discomfort of those not coming from Orion.
--The total number of persons each batch member will be bringing in the picnic shall be considered in advance to facilitate ordering of food . The food committee had prepared the menu for the picnic.
-- The expense for the food will be solicited from each batch mate apart
from the reunion contribution.
-- T- Shirt will be provided and shall be worn during the thanksgiving mass
--- Separate programs will be prepared for the 2 days big affairs, Jan 16 and 17.
---Each Committee shall give a report of the status of task assigned to them in
the next meeting on September.
