SLUBHS Class ‘68 golden jubilee set

Dec 2, 2017

BAGUIO CITY – The alumni of the Saint Louis University-Boys High School Class of 1968 from all over the world will experience the thrill of reminiscing the good old high school days with their upcoming Golden Jubilee Reunion on January 26 to 28, 2018 at various venues in the city.
The three-day golden jubilee reunion, exclusive to Class ’68 graduates, will be a significant, timely and historic milestone in the lives of these baby boomers as they enter farther into the cusp of being full-fledged senior citizens and grandparents.
The planning for the 50th anniversary reunion was three years in the making, although there were small and sporadic group meetings held even before 2015.
It is a dream-come-true for all batch mates who welcomed the invitation and blocked their calendars for this once-in-a-lifetime event. As of the latest count, 70 batch mates and 37 spouses and partners have confirmed to attend, and will be joined by their guests.
Organizers from both the Philippines and USA closely coordinated via social media and in-person meetings, all focused towards the goal of calling back home as many batch mates as possible. Baguio-based overall reunion chair Andrew Filler and US-based co-chair Rudy Liporada are supported by different committees.
Class ’68 batch mates will be welcomed on January 26 with a dinner, program and fellowship at the Hotel Veniz. On January 27, outdoor and indoor fun games will enable the batch mates to pit their skills and talents against each other in the spirit of camaraderie at the Baguio Country Club. Some will play golf while others will play indoor games at the Recreation Center where an awards program will follow.
On the afternoon of the same day, Class ’68 will proceed to the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center for the signing of the Deed of Donation, ribbon-cutting and the formal turnover of their donation consisting of one unit of commercial type Oxygenated Alkaline Water Purifier and two units of Portable Ozone Air Purifiers. BGHMC director Dr. Ricardo Ruñez will receive the equipment in the presence of the members of the BGHMC Advisory Board and Class ’68 alumni.
The donation is a manifestation of the support of SLUBHS Class ‘68 to BGHMC’s mission in promoting the health and well-being of its patient-beneficiaries as well as its programs in preventing and controlling diseases. Both purifiers were invented in 2009 by Class ’68 batch mate Rodrigo Duque, an engineer by profession, who spearheaded the donation on behalf of his batch mates.
The BHS Class ’68 will later join the BHS grand alumni homecoming bonfire in an evening of fellowship, dinner and music from rock bands at the Baguio Convention Center parking lot.
January 28 will be both spiritual and nostalgic for the Class ’68 golden jubilarians when they will hold a Eucharistic celebration and picnic at the SLU Maryheights campus in Bakakeng. It will be a time for expressing gratitude for the rare opportunity to hold a 50th anniversary reunion, as well as for 50 years of success and good health.
Capping the three-day 50th anniversary reunion is the jubilee dinner-dance and program at the Hotel Supreme that is exclusive to Class ’68 only where special portions will give tribute to their former teachers in high school as well as remember batch mates who have departed. Class ’68 batch mates who formed a band among themselves will also show their musical talent and skills by playing their favorite 1960s songs.
While the Class ’68 Jubilee Reunion is already “green and go,” the organizers continue to call on all others who wish to be counted. Batchmates may call or email Andy Filler (63)0917-564-0288 or [email protected]; or Ric Maniquis (63)0917-506-1795. They may also visit www.slubhs68.com and SLUBHS Class ’68 on FB.
