ANNOUNCEMENTS & REMINDERS
- Dear Batchmates,
Here are some announcements & reminders for this month's activities.
Our Yearbook Committee is requesting for additional photos of each block during our freshmen and sophomore years in law school. Currently, there are enough photos per block for our junior, senior, and bar review years. However, there is a dearth of photos from our earlier years.
To ensure that each block is equally represented in our yearbook, let's help out the committee by submitting more photos of our blocks during our 1st and 2nd years. We can send the photos to the committee by uploading them to our Dropbox account (username: ateneo_forum@... password: yearbook09) OR we can email the photos directly to Ipe Closa or Thea Marie Jimenez. If you want more fun, you may also upload the photos on our FB page. Pang-TBT lang.
Hopefully we can get more photos within the week so that we can finalize the layout for the annual photo pages. We'll be updating everyone again on the progress of the yearbook within the month.
2. BATCH FUND
Per our Batch Treasurer Rachelle Sy's report, we received a notice from BPI (where our batch funds are deposited) requiring us to have a minimum maintaining balance of Php3,000.00 in our Batch bank account. Currently, we only have Php500.00 deposited since we already paid for the Batch Commemorative Board.
Accordingly, we would like to request for everyone's generosity for contributions to maintain our bank account at or above the minimum balance. Ipe has graciously contributed Php1,000.00 already, so we will only need at least Php500.00 to comply with the bank's requirements.
Those who wish to contribute may deposit any amount to our batch BPI savings account with no. 8099 1066 55 in the name of Rachelle T Sy, Davao Abreeza branch. Once deposited, you may email the deposit slip to Rach or myself, so we can verify if the deposit came through. (You can also post it on our FB group page if you want! Hehehe.)
3. ALUMNI GALLERY PROJECT
As earlier posted by Carlo, ALAAI has organized the unveiling and blessing of the Alumni Gallery. The unveiling & blessing for our Class Commemorative Board is on Saturday, October 12, 2013. Mass will be at 6:00pm, followed by the unveiling & blessing at 6:30pm. Afterwards, we'll have cocktails at the 4th Floor Lobby.
Let's take this opportunity to reminisce about our law school days, as well as to learn more about the other batches as well.
Take note, this event is free of charge, but attendees are advised to confirm their attendance beforehand.
