Bro. Joseph Damian Teston just returned from the Philippines. He was the hard-working Director who established Notre Dame of Dadiangas in the early 50s and returned in August 2006 to see the school "grow" to become NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY. Congratulations Alma Mater and thanks to all the dedicated Marist Brothers, faculty members and staff who made it all happen. We are all so proud to be Notre Dameans and we pray that it will stay NOTRE DAME forever.

All NDDC-HS Batch 1997:

It's been 10 really LOOOOONG years since we met, and mingled in the hallowed halls of our alma mater... i bet it's time to bump into each other and catch up on old times... 10 years can be quite a long time for those who see each other almost every day in the Lagao campus back from 1993 to 1997... i hope we can all get together - just like back in 2004 at Bań”³ Farm (thanks for sponsoring the venue, JO... maybe we can have it there once again... we heard you got a great pool constructed already... hehehe...) - where we were with our former teachers and friends/classmates/schoolmates... we do hope more can attend as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of graduating from nddc-hs... there is so much to talk about... let's put our heads together and think of something great for this celebration... it would be fun... maybe we can show up io our old uniforms - if it still fits - and have ourselves checked by the prefect if we're wearing the black leather shoes, and white socks... hehehe... we may not be at the top of the standings in the inter batch basketball tournament (i heard we only had 1 win... but we gave them our best... we'll get them next year... hehehe...) we'll have a grand time next year... let's give it our best for our reunion... we can sit over a bottle of cold beer and pulutan, and discuss this anytime soon... shoot me an e-mail should you want to assist... you're all welcome to it... we need all the help that we can get... til then... "Ad Jesum, Per Mariam..." Viva Marista!!! :)

To all of those who have offered prayers for my brother, Melchor Mendoza, our family thank you so much. He rallied for a while but in the end, multiple organs shutdown and complications were just too much for his body. He died peacefully this morning, after receiving the sacrament of Extreme Unction in one of the most beautiful hospitals I've seen, the St. Rose Dominican Hospital of Henderson (near Las Vegas).
Mel was an alumnus of NDD High School, class of 1960.
To my brother Mel, go in peace now and be with our Lord and Notre Dame, our Blessed Mother. Go and be with our brother, Rey. Someday, we will meet again.

To all NotreDameans, friends and families who are or who might be in the southern CA area on SEPTEMBER 9, 2006 (Saturday), you are all invited to our 2nd annual Notre Dame Day summer picnic of the S.Calif. Chapter. The real ND day is Sept. 8, our Blessed Virgin Mother's birthday, but since it falls on a Fri., we will celebrate it on the next day. Remember when we used to have those ND day parade around the town in GenSan, in our PMT or ROTC uniforms and the girls in their neat green and white uniforms? We will all assemble in a park facing the beach in front of the public market and with the NDD & NDL bands playing and leading the way, the boys will then try to march briskly and smartly with their wooden guns, hoping to generate some admiring glances from the Girls Dept. It's all nostalgic for an era which is now "gone with the wind".
At any rate, the picnic will be at:
7520 DALE ST., BUENA PARK, CA (It's near the Knott's Berry Farm)
Tel. # (714) 562-3871
TIME: 10:00 A.M.- 6:00 P.M.
Fr. Renato Cruz, a ND alumnus, will say a mass at about noon to commemorate the event.
To generate some funds for our organization, their will be a silent auction of some household items and special food prepared by some of the members. Here is your chance to buy some things that you might need at below the market price and tax-free to boot.
The food & drinks are on us, mainly to be brought by the core officers and members of the S.CA Chapter. So just bring yourselves and let's have fun and camaraderie on that day!
Make use of the Mapquest for direction and for more information, please call Elena, Rod, Edith or Ligaya whose telephone numbers were listed by Elena somewhere below on this Guestbook.

I would like to request for prayers from our Notre Dame alumni and friends for my brother, Melchor Mendoza, who is now in a very critical condition at the ICU at St. Rose Medical Center in Las Vegas. He had a perforated intestine and underwent an emergency surgery last night. Renal shutdown and poorly controlled Diabetes had complicated his condition.
Mel was an NDDC H.S. graduate of 1960. Their class was the first to graduate from the then new NDDC building in Dadiangas.
Any prayers you can send to God, from the bottom of our hearts, will be much appreciated. And "Ad Jesum per Mariam."
Thank you,.

June 23-25 will be a momentous day for the Filipinos, as they will take a big step forward never done before - staging a three-day extravaganza of artistic, colorful, Philippine ethnic tribal dances - right at the streets of Los Angeles. Spearheaded by SKCAFI, all fronts are currently in the heat of action to launch the first ever "TAMBAYAYONG FESTIVAL 2006", an ambitious cultural project that will feature the various ethnic tribal dances of the Filipinos, and bringing them right into the streets of the prominent cities of the United States. The show will carry on with the same force and vigor in the cities of Chicago, New Jersey, New York and Houston.

General Santos City is one of the cities invited to this festival. A contingent of 35 performers (musicians & dancers combined) will be sent to Los Angeles together with the City Mayor & Vice Mayor and six councilors. The group will be showcasing Gensan's TUNA FESTIVAL experience by way of its participation to the Street Dancing Competition and the PAGANA (a unique dining experience) with the TUNA FISH taking center stage.
The City Mayor hopes to meet with the Officers of the organization and the Southern California chapter too. It will be a night of cultural perfomances and of course a way to invite everyone to Experience Gensan all over again. Hope to see you guys real soon!

Dubbed the "FESTIVAL OF FESTIVALS", the show is relatively colossal in size by comparative measure, consisting of a long chain of the best tribal dances from all over the Philippines. At the backdrop of the show exhibits the indigenous arts and crafts handmade by the Filipinos; a product exposure intended to promote industry at the grass roots level.

Hi to Tess Fernandez-Mapalo.

Tess, we haven't heard from you since your operation. Hope you have recovered and doing well. Inday Durico is in Gensan for a short vacation and we'd had the chance to renew friendship and reminisce the good 'ol high school days with her and some classmates. We look forward to having you around in a get-together when you visit Gensan one of these days. Just last Saturday, we spent the night videoke-ing the sounds of the 70's at Dolly Pasion-Estares' house in NLSA. And, oh boy, did we have a good time!

To Prima and the gang, thanks for this great website where we can drop a message or two for our friends/classmates located in the great US of A! Hi to Lannie Zerrudo-Gammon, Elena and Andy, still remember me?...Inday's been a year since you left the Philippines, no? also, hi to may ka-batch at notre dame - henry rogan, bert nacua, evelyn lim-buhler who are now US-based.

Happy New Year to all Notre Dameans. I just got off the phone with one of our NDL 1966 graduates, Ms. Liwanag (Ling-Ling) Reamon Ferrer. She is currently undergoing chemo/radiation as her cancer has returned. She is in Davao and requests your prayers (especially asking for Prima) that she will be able to pull through this massive chemical invasion of her body. As you read this, please say a special prayer for her. She is currently not in pain but very weak. I think I boosted her energy a bit by my surprise phone call to her. If you want to give her a call, please email me for her cell number. God bless you, Lingling, and the rest of the Notre Dameans going through this same situation. ..........Tally
