PAL Pals' Annual Reunion
October 22, 2007 by May Toling-Mediano.
It started in 1999 and every year hence, former colleagues of PAL-Cebu gather to celebrate the 4th of July in Hillsborough , New Jersey. Amidst the fireworks and Cebu-style lechon, kinilaw, and appetizing delicacies, the festive group reminisce the good old days and perks that go with working for the airline company. Over the years, the gathering has increased to include other former contemporaries from Canada, Texas, California, and even the home of Cebu has joined the celebration.
In attendance to this annual event are the familiar names and faces, Jack & Tessie Ferrer, Porting Quintana, Odile Samson, Yoyong Serrano, Doming Lausin, Leo Seno, Raul del Fierro, Noel Marcos, Andy and Baby Solano, Pepa Moreno, Antone de Leon, Carding Honorio, Alex Orbe, Val Basiga, Boy & Cora Cruz, Eric Aguilar, Bobby Solon, Jun & Elaine Fajardo, Brenda Heyrana, and Ver Villasin and of course, with their families, everyone had their fill of updates, sumptuous food, and the spirit of camaraderie.
Special thanks to the ever so gracious couple, Yoyong & Weng Serrano for hosting this annual event and tirelessly attending to everyone in their lovely home. To other PALs who are missed or contemporaries who would want to join, don’t forget… every 4th of July, the gathering is at Hillsborough, New Jersey. See you there!
