St. Stephen's Academy Grand Alumni Homecoming

This is a RE-POST from my old blog and originally appeared on Feb. 24, 2013. This is re-posted to save the article and the pictures for sentimental reasons.

On Saturday, February 16, St. Stephen’s Academy in Laur, Nueva Ecija held a Grand Alumni Homecoming in celebration of its 50th Anniversary. Among the attendees were from Batch 1967 up to Batch 2013. It was one successful event and I feel proud to be part of that momentous occasion.

Sadly, I was not able to join the motorcade as I was still on my way from Manila when it was held. However, I was able to attend the mass and was among the first to get settled on the table assigned to us, Batch 1991. A slide show was displayed on the projector and I felt sad and disappointed to learn that our batch did not have any picture on it. If I only knew they were needed, I should have volunteered some old pictures I’ve been keeping all these years.

The most exciting part, I guess though not for me, was drawing the raffle tickets. I wasn’t excited because, first I wasn’t able to buy myself a ticket as the tickets were sold out and second, I’ve never been lucky in raffle draws anyway :D.

Now, my favorite part was the batch presentation. Each batch was supposed to present something, anything, otherwise, there would be a penalty, and I want to express my deep appreciation to the alumni, especially the older ones, who took time and took part to make the event memorable.
I want to congratulate St. Stephen’s Academy, including the Faculty and Staff for their success in bringing us all together in this once in a lifetime experience. Salute to all of you!

SSA, 50 YEARS NA!!!
