 A Word from the President, GAA-NA   

Dear GRACE Alumni, Teachers and Friends,

       Over two months have quickly passed since I saw many of you in Vancouver, Canada. We had such fun at the Picnic (June 26), then an impressive Gala evening (June 27), followed by a weeklong Alaska cruise (starting June 28). Can you believe, my own classmate of 52 years ago could not recognize me at first sight!!! It was truly a most memorable experience!

       The Gala evening was full of fun and door prize excitement. The food served by Marriott Hotel was superb. The decorations and all the hard work put in by the Committee members are to be commended.

       Besides meeting fellows alums, the Gala was graced with the presence of our faithful missionaries - Mr. & Mrs. Dwight & Darlene Johnson, Mr. Earl Bittenbender, Mr. & Mrs. Dale and Sharon Gregory, as well as our faithful Vice Principal, Mr. Lin Mong Ciong.

       Special THANKS to the alumni for supporting our fundraising during the 65th Anniversary Gala. We raised $2,205 Cdn by selling 50/50 Arms-length raffle tickets. Dr. Milton Po, who bought the winning ticket, graciously donated it to our Benevolent Fund. This fund will be used to help our Teachers who are facing financial challenges due to illnesses.

****************************************************************************
       Afterwards, I returned to Manila in time for the 65th Anniversary Celebrations. During the Manila Alumni Homecoming, I relayed greetings from all of you in North America, while sharing some pictures of our Vancouver reunion. All enjoyed seeing fellow alumni on the other side of the world.

       In this Issue, we are posting Pictures shown at the August 30th Homecoming at Sofitel Hotel (Manila). It was a full night of programs and awardees to recognize outstanding alumni.

       In the months ahead, we will continue to post pictures of our Vancouver celebrations. Hope you enjoy the moments of recollection.

       "Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD." (Psalm 150:6)

Happy 65th Anniversary,
your fellow GRACE alumni,

"A WIDOW'S MITE"
School Founder: Mrs. Julia Lee Tan

       "If only there was a large piece of land, where a Christian village could be built, with a first-rate school, a Bible-centered church, with beautiful music heard daily inside this village; and where the villagers live under an atmosphere of culture and spirituality, beloved by both God and man..."

       This was the DREAM--some 65 years ago--of a slightly built young lady, Mrs. Julia L. Tan. This lady happened to be a poor widow with five small children in the Philippines.
