Flor Siazon summed it up, “Reunion with old friends, meeting new ones, fun-filled games, lots of laughter, lots of door prizes, great raffle, good food. It was a nice way to spend a Saturday.”
Paulinians who attended were from New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. There were a few Paulinians who were also “dual alums” having studied at St. Paul as well as another school such as Maryknoll and University of the Philippines.
“This year there was more solidarity and camaraderie from previous years,” said Myrna Guia Gutierrez, “We were more comfortable with each other because of our previous good experience.” A graduate of both St. Paul and Maryknoll, Myrna said that being “dual alum” was fun because she enjoyed both school reunion at HSK.
Pauline, the Paulinian doll, solicited new membership and renewal to the Alumnae. School uniform checkered black and white colors were prominent in the Kalayaan Hall as Paulinians were sporting the Paulinian Alumnae scarf.
