Ateneo de Manila High School Batch ‘69 is celebrating its Golden Jubilee this month with a series of activities lined up from March 5 to 9.
With the theme “69’ers Strike Gold,” these Ateneans, now in their late 60s, will come together to relive memories of life in the sixties with their Jesuit mentors, and share unique and unforgettable episodes in their teenage life.
HS ‘69 Reunion Organizing Committee chair Ed Santos said activities will kick off with two out-of-town events starting with a lunch and tour of Sandy Javier’s farm in Batangas on March 5. This will be followed by a lunch and tour of Pampanga hosted by Tito Panlilio on March 7. Both events have golf scheduled, according to Santos.
Meanwhile, batch president Greg Cancio disclosed that the main program on March 9 at the Mariano Singson Hall will begin with a concelebrated mass by Ateneo director for alumni relations Fr. Kits Bautista, SJ and batch mate Fr. Bingo Nespral.
Entertainment that evening will be top-notch beginning with a special 45-minute show by Jim Paredes and Boboy Gorovillo. The program also includes performances by Joey Buhain, The Flintstones, and Mixed Emotions. The event begins at 4:30 pm.
At least 150 have confirmed their attendance, including those based overseas; while 37 have since passed.
