The historic and much-awaited general reunion of all graduates of Bulacan High School (BHS), Marcelo H. del Pilar High School (MHPNHS), and Marcelo H. del Pilar High School who have chosen to work and live abroad, will soon be a reality!
Event: GLOBAL GATHERING 2017
Date: May 27-28, 2017
Place: California, U.S.A.
On the initiative of the revitalized MHPNHS Alumni Association (MAA), the gathering will bring together all alumni from the different parts of the world in its effort to expand the Del Pilarian alumni network.
In the process, the MAA hopes to create bonding and fellowship opportunity for overseas alumni, as well as effective and coordinated engagement in supporting our alma mater in the Philippines.
A core group of volunteer alumni from California and New York will be coordinating with two members of the MAA board of trustees in planning and implementing the event.
The MAA will be represented by Jaime A. FlorCruz (C1967) based in Beijing and Perfecto T. Martin (C1968) based in Metro Manila.
The GG2017 will have a core group composed of C1965: Benny Arañas; C1966: Gerry M. Torres, Charito Aldaba Gabriel; C1967: Lolit Teodoro, Danny Tongco; C1968, Elizabeth Espiritu Barrera, Gliceria Roque Bagasin; C1969: Leni A. FlorCruz-Florentino; C1970: Riza Ibañez Velasco; and C1973: Ric Lopez and Jerry Celis.
Three more volunteers will be added to represent the diamond, ruby, and silver jubilarians of 2017 (Class 1957, 1977, and 1992). The golden jubilarians are represented in the core by Lolit Teodoro Tongco and Jaime FlorCruz.
The gathering, although primarily directed to alumni from Canada and the United States, is also open to those coming from Europe, Australia, Africa, and Asia, including of course, the Philippines.
The gathering is not to be confused with MAA’s annual general homecoming called “Araw ng Alumni” which will be held this year in Malolos on November 30.
