Burning News from Bacolod
by Ed & Sonia (June 15, 2001)

Here's something hot from the wires of Bacolod.  I received this news just a few hours ago from Edgar & Sonia and I am excited to tell you that they are having a weekend this Friday. They have 11 couples for the weekend. WME Bacolod is happy to announce that they are having a rookie presentor in the persons of Jun & Darlyn. They took the deeper last May 2000 in Iloilo. Dammy & Marilyn Pison are the admins. Ed-Son are requesting for you to remember them and all the participants in their on going weekend in your prayers.

Bacolod has also started to give out the modules to drum up awareness and enthusiasm for our forth coming Silver Jubilee celebration in Cebu. Below is the activity that Ed & Sonia wrote in about those enrichments.

Boy & Ching Calsena gave the 1st module here in Bacolod. It was attended by only l2 couples. There are plans to repeat the module for all those who were not able to attend.

Edgar & Bebing Sarrosa went to Cebu last June 9 to facilitate the 1st module since the Cebu couples arrived after lunch in Dumaguete & missed the 1st module.  It was very well attended with about 100 pax including Choice graduates & children of some couples. It  was a good idea inviting the young adults.
Module 1 was well accepted that titillated their enthusiasm. Intro pa lang couples were already moved/touched as evidenced by the tears they shed.  After the session, they were already asking when will the next module be.

Benny & Vilma distributed the schedule of the rest of  the modules & the WME Cebu activities. This is a good idea which we in 
Bacolod will follow. What we have is also a complete schedule from now till Dec., but we did not organize it in paper as well as they did. So while we gifted Cebu with our presence they gifted us with their idea & the tremendous warmth & energy that we received.

May 21, 2000. The beautiful and loving WME couples of Bacolod awed the City of Talisay with their colorful and vibrant parade for their 21st Anniversary celebration.  Bright red, glittering gold, and satin white balloons and WME posters decked the 28 cars that cruised the mainavenues of the city before heading to Nature's Village Resort where themain celebration was held.

Registration started at 2 PM.  A total of 48 couples, 11 Choice graduates, 107 guests and families & kins graced the occassion. A get to know game among the encountered couples followed right after the color coded registration.

A celebration mass led by Fr. Gigie Caraig and the WME couples started at 3 PM.  Edgar & Bebing Sarrosa , the BacolodZone Coordinator welcomed everybody with a short but rousing speech. Of course, the celebration wouldn't be complete without the food and snackshared by the whole community while, the Manubo-Bukidnon Children's Choirprovided some entertainment in between.

Games!  Yes, and a lot more games filled the afternoon with fun.
...and the winners are...

The way Bacolod celebrated their anniversary, it seems everybody went home a winner.  Special prizes were given to the couple who arrived the earliest for the motorcade and for the very first coupleto register.  The weekend with the most number couples present, andthe color with the most number of couples got their share of prizes aswell.  The two-generation encountered couples category produced 4winners. (These are parent-couples whose kids experienced the weekend aswell.)

Amid the euphoria of the celebration, Edgar & Bebing drumed up everybody to recruit more couples to our fold, through the letter of inspiration and dream of our National Coordinator Terry & MarnieMalicse.

The closing ceremony ended at 6 PM with one of the community's favorite song,"There 's A New World".
