A Letter from our Executive Director -
Dr. Rise Faith Espina Dajao
April 10, 2020
Dear fellow alumni,
I hope that by now you have received Dr. Jerry Murillo’s letter announcing my appointment as the Executive Director upon Doming’s sudden and untimely death. Doming was the heart of ASOCIMAI and kept this association going through good times and bad. I know that he would have wanted to have his beloved friends and relatives surrounding him when he passed but that was not to be. That really hurt us all. Please continue to pray for his eternal and peaceful repose. Some have asked us what happened after his death: He was cremated and his ashes are with his niece in New Jersey. He will be brought home to Leyte to rest beside his beloved sister.
I accept this appointment with humility and with great trepidation. I have huge shoes to fill and I need all your help to accomplish this task. 2020 has been a trying year for us all but in the midst of all the trials and sorrows, we have had some good things happen. Roger and I have finally retired (which is one reason I was able to accept this position) and are now living in Philadelphia to be closer to our children and grandchildren and we now have new professions: babysitter and school bus driver! Much different but really enjoyable!
Our next reunion will be at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas from JULY 6-10, 2022. Let’s make this truly GRAND!
We are requesting everyone to send in their membership fees for the years 2020 and 2021 if at all possible. It is $100/year per person. Our coffers are really down right now so we need some help. Please send your checks to:
DR. RONALD POBLETE
777 RIFLE CAMP ROAD
WOODLAND PARK, NJ 07424
Thank you for your confidence in me. My email address, phone number and physical address have been added to this message. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions, suggestions or critiques. I will always be available to you at any time. God bless us all.
