A SLU Lab Boys High Batch 81 mini 25th year anniversary reunion to remember
Its 2:30 Am July 8, 2006. Our SLU Lab Boys High Batch 81 mini reunion for us lads based in Northern America is officially over.
Men aren't supposed to be emotional as the stereo-type goes, but I get that sentimental feeling about faring goodbye to batch mates after spending two nights and a day to celebrate our reunion.
James Lapid who flew in to Las Vegas from Florida, Larry Flores from Vancouver, Eric Luna and Mauro Arellano from Chicago, Ricky Sajonas from Toronto, Alvin Lansang from New Jersey, Tony Rulloda from the Philippines and all the California boys who drove out here in this piece of desert estate called Las Vegas. Thanks to all batch mates for getting out of your way to travel out here to be with each other and to celebrate our Batch 81 - 25th year anniversary Saint Louis Lab Boys High reunion.
Thanks to batch mate Munch Padilla who arranged and reserved much of the reunion venues.
I ponder to myself and realize the value of recognizing those people who influenced and molded our past specially our years of youth. I think it is when we recognize and understand our past will we be able to move forward and understand and conquer our futures. No puns intended though, I know a lot of batch mates couldn't make it to the mini-reunion for one reason or another.
During the reunion, we did a lot of catching up to know what each batch mate has been up to all these years, about our families, our dreams, aspirations, our careers, reminisce the funny moments of our High School yesteryears, jokes.We had a great time, Thanks to all batch mates who were present.
Here's a sample of our reunion pictures. I'm sure more pictures will published and shared by Mel Pabustan when he makes them available at our SLU Boys High Batch 81 website.To all our batch mates based in the Philippines and various parts of the world, we wish more power and perseverance to you all, as you organize the main 25th year anniversary Saint Louis Lab Boys High reunion.
Hoorah !! Here's a toast to us all SLU Lab Boys High Batch 81 batch mates
