These are some pictures during the second convocation program. got this from the OLPS Minor blog

whats interesting is that the parents actually participated in the program. we never had this thing during my time. new development kaya? in any case its a good thing to make the parents more involved in their son's school life di ba?

i think these were the smart kids who got the academic awardsand the parents in full musical mode

lets us all pray for the eternal peace and salvation of Yayes' dad who passed away some days ago after a lingering illness.

Minutes of the 4th OLPS Alumni Meeting
OLPS, Sorsogon City
8:00PM, September 5, 2008

In Attendance :

Atty. Tootsie Cubias Tato Marcial
Totep Perez Bernie Donor
Tom Sementela Tony Deligero
Ferdinand Marbella Alvin Pura
Fr. Joseph Erestain Ed Escueta
Fr. Egay Cleofe

Meeting Proper

The meeting started at 8:00PM with Atty Cubias presiding. The following concerns were discussed :

1. Tarpaulin Banner (standard size per batch), T-shirt

Totep Perez presented Dondee Delgado’s T – shirt designs. The group selected the plain cream design however with some revisions, viz, logo and motto either in black or green.

Tarpaulin banners will be produced by each batch.

2. Information Dissemination

Totep Perez to furnish Tato Marcial, Tootsie Cubias, Fr. Egay Cleofe copy of invitation letter cum solicitation for rice subsidy project, Atty. Cubias to reproduce letter and obtainMons Pax’s signature, Tato marcial to strategize distribution with the assistance of Fr. Egay.

Totep Perez to produce public service announcements, plugging material or press release.

3. Alumni Directory

Tato Marcial to present available directory next meeting, updating of such must be done prior to homecoming.

4. Confirmation of Attendance to Homecoming

The group projected an estimated 200 pax attendance based on previous homecoming records.

6. Homecoming Activities

Ferdie Marbella represented Batch 83. Totep Perez presented Batch 83’s proposal based on Gerry Arnedo’s email to Mons Pax hereunder stated :

“This is regarding the proposed plans for the homecoming. From the minutes forwarded to our class ( Aug 1, meeting), the following activities/contributions were assigned to batch ’83:

  1. Fellowship ( Oct 17 dinner/fellowship ( food/raffle prizes/band entertainment/lights and sound system)
  2. Breakfast/snack/games/ referees/parade snacks/tarpaulins/Mass stipend –estimate is P 45,000
  3. The batch early on during the year committed to Fr. Egay Cleofe that we will support the upcoming Sangkan which OLPS is hosting. We committed to the purchase of tables for pingpong, pool, board games, etc.-The batch expects to raise approximately another P 45,000 to P 50,000 for this endeavor.
We were wondering if the following can be an option for the homecoming, because if you consider all of these the cost to Batch ’83 will be rather high ( P 90,000+ already solely for items 2 and 3 only). We have not even accounted for the expenses we will incur for the program we want to have for the fellowship night.

  1. raise the registration to P 200 instead of proposal of P50 to help fund for dinner fellowship or
  2. we drop item 2 ( open the canteen on a buy your own snacks, and we get referee’s from among the alumni) and use the 45,000 instead to pay for the dinner on the 17th. I am sure the batch will be more than willing to add a little bit more so that there will be enough food for 200pax”

The group adopted option # 2, stated thus :
  1. 1. Batch 83 to sponsor Fellowship Night
  2. 2. OLPS to open canteen, Alumni to buy snacks or buy their own
  3. 3. Alumni to act as referees

Further, the group agreed that :
  1. OLPS will provide breakfast on October 18, 2008, Saturday consisting of pan de sal and bottomless coffee.
  2. Motorcade instead of parade on same date to cut cost on transport and snacks for Drum and Bugle Corps.

Thus, the following is the revised Homecoming Schedule :

October 17, 2008, Friday
1 PM – Registration (fee still pegged at P50.00 minimum)
3 PM – Motorcade around Sorsogon City
4PM – Games
7 PM – Fellowship Night

October 18, 2008, Saturday
7AM – Breakfast
9 AM – Mass cum General Assembly
12 Noon – Batch reunions

7. Other Matters

Totep to remind Joey Cubias to submit documents to Tom Sementela for Financial Statement preparation per requirement for SEC Registration.

Next meeting will be on September 13, 2008, Saturday, 6PM at OLPS. Having no other matters to be discussed, the meeting was adjourned at 9:00 PM.

Meeting Proper

Atty. Fumera led the group in the discussion of the matters arising from the previous meeting:

1. On Rice subsidy :

Mr. Tato Marcial reported that 10 seminarians are having difficulty in complying with the required 3 sacks of rice yearly, thus, a shortfall of 30 sacks in the year.

Fr. Egay Cleofe informed the group that he will provide names of those seminarians and inquired if they will become direct beneficiaries of the Alumni Foundation and in effect, they are no longer obliged to give the required sacks of rice. The group discussed on the matter and arrived at the decision that the OLPS is the sole beneficiary of the Alumni Foundation who will receive directly the rice subsidy. It is now the discretion of the OLPS administration if they will still require the 10 seminarians to give rice.

Mr. Bernie Donor informed the group that per sack costs P1,250 per sack or P25 per kilo, thus a total of P37,500.00 for 30 sacks of rice shortfall. It was suggested that the Alumni Foundation will write letter to NFA Manager to purchase rice, Totep to draft the letter, Monsignor Monje to sign. The source of fund will come from donations from alumni, post the information at alumni blogspots.

2. On Financial Statement :

Mr. Joey Cubias, the Alumni Treasurer was absent. Mr Tom Sementela suggested that Mr. Perez must remind Mr. Cubias to submit the records of transactions for him to prepare the Financial Statement.

3. On General Information Sheet:

Atty. Tootsie Cubias was absent, again, Mr. perez was tasked to remind Atty. Cubias to submit the General Information Sheet.

4. On Alumni Directory:

Mr. Marcial to coordinate with the Registrar Mam Nikki Halcon, Sr. Myrna Dioquino & Atty. Cubias.

5. On Fellowship Night:

Mr. Perez reported that he met Atty. Alwin Talde who informed him that Batch 83 had a meeting in Manila to discuss their sponsorship of the event by shouldering the financial cost and possible production of Film Documentary about OLPS c/o Film maker Larry Manda.

6. On Destroyed Fence:

Mr. Marcial took picture of the damaged portion and posted the same on the blog. However, Fr. Cleofe informed the group that there is a plan to construct an access road in the same area. Atty. Fortes suggested that the group must remove the item from the Alumni’s concern based on the aforementioned plan. The group agreed.

7. On Tarpaulin Banners:

The group decided to put the item for further discussion next meeting.

8. On Establishment of Alumni Affairs Office:

Mr. Perez informed Fr. Cleofe on the rationale behind the establishment of an Alumni Affairs Ofice. Fr. Cleofe said that seminarians are capable to be assigned, for the meantime at the alumni desk that will soon be transformed into an office. Mr perez will draft a formal letter of request to the Rector, Msgr. Monje to sign & discuss details with Fr. Cleofe, the Rector.
