TINA Jordana sends us news about the forthcoming annual homecoming of Colegio de la Inmaculada Concepcion (CIC). It will be on Dec. 4 (a Sunday) from 1 p.m. onwards, with a rodeo theme.
“The school grounds of the Gorordo Avenue campus will be transformed into a Wild West State Fair,” says Tina with characteristic enthusiasm.
She has initiated the joint participation of the CIC Alumni Association with the CIC Cebu Night High School alumni. “And always from hereon,” she declares. She heads that special committee.
The event will also celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of the well-loved Sister Trinidad Dosdos as a Daughter of Charity for the past 65 years.
That’s about half of the 136 years CIC has existed since it opened as a school for young ladies in 1880 at the height of the Spanish era.
On December 4, registration starts at 1 p.m. Holy Mass is at
3 p.m., followed by the merienda with the traditional chocolate con churros at 4:30 p.m.
The festivities will culminate with a program, dinner, raffle and dancing. The alumni and their families are welcome to be a part of this memorable affair. For more info, call 032-232-9787.
Incumbent officers of the CIC Alumni Association are the
following: Marieles Herrera – president; Glenda Miro Antonio and Dely Torralba Tubio – vice presidents; Fanche Medina and Joyce Celdran Chiongbian – secretaries; Cherie Lou Ong Schornack and Rose Uy Galdo – treasurers; Michelle del Gallego Ngo and Tetchie Celis – PROs; Lucille Dy Parcon – auditor; and Jing Escaño Vergara – director.
Also involved are past presidents Margot Gonzalez Larrañaga, Vivien Alex Seno and Maricel Borromeo Amores. Sister Trining happens to be the CIC alumni coordinator, while Sister Maria Luisa Javier DC is the cluster president.
