Goodbye Melba… Till We Meet Again.

We will sorely miss our immediate past President Melba Solidum Lim, who went with Lord on Oct 30, 2016. Our Organizing Committee (OC) meetings won’t be the same without her passioned leadership and dedication to our Organization.

Goodbye Melba. Rest peacefully in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus…

The late Melba Solidum Lim with husband James Lim.

5th Grand Reunion on Dec. 5, 2015 in Cerritos CA


IMG_1928 1480659_10152027097805902_751059446_nDear fellow alumni,

In less than 7 weeks, we have the special opportunity to reminisce our elementary/high school days in the company of friends from the good old days!

The 5th Grand Reunion of the UPHPEIS AANA will be on Saturday, December 5 at Josephines in Cerritos (11305 183rd St, Cerritos CA 90703) from 11 am – 5 pm. Enjoy a sumptuous buffet , lots of raffle prizes , and great dance music from our very own Ellery Atienza and the AM – FM BAND!!!

If you recall, what initially brought us together 5 years ago was our desire to quickly respond to the call for help from the UPIS Foundation to “adopt” a classroom in the new building and furnish it with the necessary equipment and furniture. We achieved that goal and adopted the Geography Room—— but we aren’t done yet!

This year, our goal is to construct a fitting guardhouse, which is the first thing that you see when entering the new school facility. You could be involved in two ways: 1) attend the Grand Reunion, and 2) advertise in our souvenir program.

Tickets to the reunion costs $35 each only. You may safely purchase them on-line with your Debit Card or Credit Card (see DONATE button below),  using PayPal’s secured site. You will automatically receive an email confirming the receipt of your payment after completing your purchase.

For those who prefer writing a check instead, make it payable to UPHPEIS AANA and mail it to Alice Ramos (P.O. BOX 3534, Cerritos, CA 90703-3534). Please mail your check no later than Nov. 15, 2015 so we can confirm and reserve your tickets. You may pick up your tickets at the Registration table an hour before the start of the event. Hurry! Tickets are limited!

A souvenir program will be published for this event to help you remember the fun, good food, good music and good company in store for you. So if you would like to place an ad in support of a worthy cause, please contact Bobby Canseco at (562) 607-8839 or email him at bobby.canseco@gmail.com for more information.

ALSO, if you desire to donate prizes for the raffle, we welcome gift cards worth $15 or more, which you can hand over to Alice on the day itself.

Our event is open to alumni and friends, so please purchase your tickets early to guarantee your seat!

A good cause PLUS great food, amazing friends, awesome memories —— that’s what UPHPEIS AANA is all about!

See you soon!
Melba Solidum Lim
