Past and Forward: UPLSAA @60!

It only seems like yesterday that our dear UP Library Science Alumni Association (UPLSAA) has been established. The year was 1950 --- post World War II . . . a recently built UP Diliman . . . bodabil . . . jukebox . . . baby boomers. Much had happened since then, and we are now about to celebrate our 60th Homecoming and General Assembly. 60th wedding anniversary is symbolized by diamonds. For us, UPLSAA alumni, 60 years symbolize resilience, strength, unity, and hope. It is our time to look back and look ahead of what the next 60 years and more will bring us.

On 15 May 2010, Saturday, 3:30pm at the Balay Kalinaw in UP Diliman, we will be witnessing this once in a lifetime celebration of our 60th Homecoming and General Assembly dubbed as Past and Forward: UPLSAA @60!

We are cordially inviting you to attend our 1950’s themed 60th Homecoming. This is a great opportunity for us to chit chat, catch up on each other and on the events that have been happening and will be happening to our association and to SLIS as well. We are assuring you that this celebration will both be pleasurable and meaningful. It will be the 50’s sock hop (1950’s party spot to be) and soda shop! Girls in poodle skirts with tight fitted blouses and boys in jeans and white shirts with rolled up sleeves. Remember the peppermint dances, twist, mashed potato, the pony, and the swim? And who will not forget rock and roll? Elvis Presley, Eddie Mesa, Rockey Fellers, Pilita Corrales, Marilyn Monroe, Chuck Berry, Diomedes Maturan, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Peregrina, Buddy Holly, and Johnny Ray. There will be a photobooth (1950’s style), bazaars, raffle, games, good music, good food and fabulous company!

* The ticket costs PhP300
, inclusive of snacks and dinner, ticket to the photobooth, and to an evening of meaningful celebration. A portion of this amount will also go to the UP School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS) Building Fund. By 2011, the SLIS will celebrate its Golden Anniversary, and by then, we hope that our dearly loved institute/school will have its new home.

A souvenir program will also be distributed to all the attendees. If you wish to give more to the association and its programs, the following packages are offered:

· PhP 500
One (1) ticket to the event (see*)
¼ page of the souvenir program is intended for you

Php 1,000
Two (2) tickets to the event (see*)
½ page of the souvenir program is intended for you

· PhP 2,000
Four (4) tickets to the event (see*)
1 whole page of the souvenir program is intended for you
You will be acknowledged during the event

We are encouraging everyone to come in 1950s or 1960’s attire! The batch that will come in the best costume wins fantastic prizes!
