Cavite National High School Class 65
Special 48th Anniversary Celebration
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

October 22, 2013

Dear Friends,


A total of 98 class members, spouses, and guests gathered for a fun filled evening that included an hour of drinking, a delicious dinner that included three entrees, special door prize drawings, speeches from the members of the committee, dancing to the 60's music, plenty of hugs, and the rekindling of many old friendships.

The reunion celebration included an informal program that began at 8:00 pm. The banquet room was decorated with festive garlands and a class banner. Also, there were candle lights to honor the memory of our deceased classmates. Top 5 1965 hit songs were sung by 12 male classmates. There was an audience participation in singing the song Those Were the Days. The entire night was all about taking individual and group pictures with their cameras, IPADS, and smart phones.

Continuing the 48th celebration the next day, the Fun Day was held at the famous Ardiente Clubhouse. Games were played and contributed much to the fun. Foods were awesome according to all who enjoyed a pleasant afternoon of additional conversation and reminiscing with fellow class members.

To further commemorate its milestone, a 48th Reunion Memory Disc with 26 Top 1965 Hit Songs were given to 1965 classmates and guests. A fifteen minutes Power Point presentation of memories, old photos of former classmates and teachers, and other faculty members were shown.

While the memories of the reunion are still fresh, I want to take this opportunity to thank the following committee members of the CNHS Class of  '65, Romy Obien, Jun Alcantara, Joe Noche, Mike Lim, and Rey Balan. I have said on more than one occasion that I have been blessed by having great friends and to me the affair on the night of October 12 is more than a reunion but rather a celebration of those friendships. For whatever reason, men and women of the CNHS Class of 1965 who invested their time and energy touched my life and I am grateful. Most importantly, we welcomed and thanked all the cash donors (you know who you are) who have contributed to the huge success.

It may be in our 50th before I see most of you again but I am certain that when we do meet I'll have just a big smile on my face. I want to wish each of you all the best in the years to come and I look forward to sharing and celebrating our friendship in 2015.


Thank you all so much.
