The 4th nationwide reunion of the Fuentebella, Fuentevella, Puentebella and Puentevella clan was held at the Bacolod Pavillon Resort Hotel and Restaurant, and attended by about 500 family members from Negros, Panay, Luzon, Canada and the U.S.A.
The two-day affair strengthened the bond and camaraderie of the members, with activities like “Hataw”, opening of exhibits, the getting-to-know and introduction of all relatives present, fellowship and games.
Fr. Naring de la Cruz officiated in the mass at 6 p.m. April 6, before dinner at 7 p.m. A cultural talent show, raffle draw and ballroom dancing followed.
The second day included tours to the provincial Capitol and the New Government Center in Bacolod City, The Ruins in Talisay City, and Mambukal Resort in Murcia town, Negros Occidental.
It was agreed at the reunion that the family will continue with the research on its history and the complete directory of the members, aside from the souvenir book given at the affair.*
Remember: God always repay caring acts. It may not be with money or goods. More often, He repay with happiness, health, friendship and love.
