Subject: Get in touch with anyone from class of 76

Hi, I was just looking at the website and sure made me feel so homesick. I
graduated in 1976, and my maiden name is Teresita Bagunas. I was just
wondering if there is someone out there who could give me an update regarding
our batch. I have been away from Tacloban since 1978.
Please email me at tess.kasarda@seattle.gov.

Hi Tess! Thanks for writing! I've called the attention of your batch leader, Jule
de Guzman. Batch '76 is one of the more active & better organized batches.
They even have organized themselves into a Cooperative! Will email you
contact details of your batchmates once I get them. - Gerry Ruiz

Isn't there any sport activity in the Grand Alumni Days? Just wanted to use the
LNHS gym. Yung lang ang kulang ko back in my Leyte High days...hehehehehe.
Roof pa lang kasi ang nakalagay when I was a senior. Although nagamit namin sa
CAT pero di namin nagamit as a sport venue.

Maybe some sort of exhibition games in basketball, volleyball and badminton can
be done. Alumni versus the current LNHS varsity team....just a suggestion.

Will forward your suggestion to the ExeCom - Webmaster

Hi Gerry!

You've done an impressive job of setting up and hosting this website, which is a
huge undertaking, considering your immensely busy schedule. I truly do appreciate
it and I'm sure everyone else does.

I'm anxious to do my part and will register as soon as I'm able to deposit the
registration fee. The only PNB in New Jersey is quite a distance from my place. I
will try to keep you posted and possibly offer some form of assistance and/or
suggestions to the activities.

It looks like all involved are doing a fine job. Best of luck!
