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 anonymous.

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.

Representing the class during the turnover and blessing were the following:

Egay and Mawee Aglipay
Rey Alcasid
Ruben Domingo
Artemio Lim
Doy and Baby Francisco
Mel and Hazel Acosta
Boy and Barrie Castellano
Tet Dagudag
