( To view pictorial during the blessing
With the presence of some PMA Class '71, the blessing of the
2 rooms at Veterans Memorial Medical Center pushed thru as scheduled
on 9 September 06. In attendance were key staff personnel of the
Center headed by the Acting Director, Dr. Monina Lagaspi. The
Matatags and Mas Matatags were glad to hear that the renovation
of the 2 adjacent rooms was up to the standard.
At a cost of P200,000, the Class was not only able to renovate
the 2 rooms but they were able to put in some amenities like a
TV set, aircon, chairs, electric fan, water heater pot, and extra
bed for a caregiver for each room.
Plans are in the offing to renovate more rooms, individually
or thru solicitation from kindhearted and benevolent people. They
are looking into the possibility of getting support/sponsor especially
those from foreign-based mistahs.
A Class member also wholeheartedly donated 750 sets of linen,
even before we planned the room renovation, but he opted to remain
Anyway, on behalf of the VMMC staff, the Acting Director Dr.
Monina Legaspi had expressed their gratitude to the PMA CLass
of 1971 for such a noble project. According to her, the renovation
of the rooms will surely uplift the early recovery of our veterans
who get the opportunity to use these facilities.
