New Year’s Greetings to all!!!! We hope and pray 2012 will be a healthy and bountiful year for all of us.
Let me take this opportunity too to thank the wonderful families we visited and who opened their doors to us, served sumptuous lunch, meriendas and dinners, as we relived the old tradition of singing Christmas carols with them for 2 week-ends:
Anis/Annie Zubairi/Narsing Perez Cesar/Amor Atienza
Eric/Hazel Mendoza Roman/Virgie Ramos
Rey/Noemi Perez Dante/ Ellen Honorico
Ed/Josie Buenaflor Romy/Connie Borillo
Marilyn De Castro
Likewise, I appreciate the participation of the jolly carolers who in spite of their busy time joined us and really showed their true spirit of the holiday season. I hope you all enjoyed it and had fun like I did:
Alex/Nhell Baes (Alex was our song leader)
Honey Boy/Merly Pagunsan (Honey Boy, our assistant song leader and piano/keyboard accompanyist)
Romy/Thess Villafranca (Thess prepared an impressive songbook)
Lito de Castro
Helen/Nitoy de Castro
Val J. Perez (our website administrator and official photo/videographer)
Danny Boy/Florence/Carmela Marie Torralba
Ray/Ina Dahilig family
To all the families and carolers I thank you very much for your endless support to the Ibaan Association. To those who missed this holiday fun we hope you will join us next year.
A FEW ANNOUNCEMENTS

It was decided at the last meeting that we experiment on having a food theme every meeting, simple but delicious merienda or meal as appropriate sort of. This time as agreed, it will be Italian, we will just order pizza (on the association) so it’s fresh and hot.
