Greetings! I would like to share with you my joy on
seeing Boholanos bonding with that well-known Boholano cohesiveness to
make them feel closer to home.
personally experienced this phenomenon when I flew to Bonn, Germany
accompanied by Mrs. Bohol International 2006, Mrs. Socorro S. Parras, to
witness the crowning of the first Mrs. Bohol-Europe, Rica Ligan, 1st and
2nd Runner-Ups Hilda Reif (Talibon) and Teresita Lippold (Alburquerque.
Marilyn Bactasa (Pilar) was Mrs. Charity with Prisca Schelinger (Sevilla),
her runner-up. One is profoundly by their oneness in a foreign land.
TBTK spirit has created and generated ripples reaching the farthest part
of the globe so that we expect to meet personalities long lost to us
come TBTK 2009.
the commemoration of the 111th birthday of the pride of Bohol, the late
President Carlos Polistico Garcia, I met Carla, his granddaughter, and I
recalled Congressman Edgar M. Chatto petitioning the National Historical
Commission to declare the CPG home in Tagbilaran City a historical
monument to the great Boholano. TBTK could pick this up as a meaningful
project. This is easily doable if we work together - at heart, in mind
and with soul and resources.
started the countdown to TBTK 2009. Let's make sure we're all counted.
Nothing compares with the power of our presence. So start extending
those invites to come home. We don't want to miss anyone.
See you all at the Tigum !
