My 1956 high school batch of the defunct ZAEC College (now Universidad de Zamboanga) had a splendid reunion at the residence of its active president Meldy Sator. Aida Luistro Quijano and I assisted Meldy in gathering our classmates for a lively Sunday lunch last Nov. 18. It was followed by raffles and keep sake tokens. It really feels good meeting high school friends once again.

Since our golden class reunion in 2006, we have been updating each other and doing our best to meet even once a year. We do appreciate Meldy for always hosting our affair. Despite she is in a wheel chair due to an accident, she gives us an inspiration that life must go on. She is a very gracious and strong will woman.

Among those who came were civic leader Nelida Atilano, Nena Bucoy Tadeo (she flew all the way from the USA), retired SSS director Dely Drapiza, Lily Carpio Malcampo, Chit Profeta, Rizalina Gonzales, Puring Salvador Pichel, Cely Ramchand Lewis, Sylvia Sargento, Melody Silay Jabat, Chit Paragas, Dorie Rodriquez, Leny Ignacio, Editha Sebastian, Letty Enriquez, and Ganding Bello.

Only 3 of our boys were able to make it. They are Mario Cabanlit, Gabriel Salvador, and Ben Roxas who rendered a love song to the delight of the group. We hope next year more will join us.

See you again, high school classmates! God bless us with good health and happy life all the time.
