Reunions and visitations


In town recently were balikbayans from the land of Milk and Honey to attend the golden class reunion of the Assumption Convent in Manila. After attending the school activities, they decided to visit their classmates Fatima Sajo, Josie Abong Alejo, Nora Jison Varela, and Hilda Flores Nanongkai in Bacolod City.

They stayed at L’Fisher Hotel and visited the beautiful places in Negros Occidental, going to Salvador Benedicto town to enjoy the food, the view, and the cool weather staying for three days before travelling to Iloilo to also reunite with their other classmates, and relatives.

They plan to come back next year, and maybe, build a cottage in Salvador Benedicto. When they left their luggage were full of Negros and Bacolod delicacies, like piaya and barquillos. Looking forward to seeing you all next year!*

Remember: Every good gift comes from the Father. Keeping in tune with Christ keeps harmony in the church.*
