month, the hometowns of three members were hit the hardest – Tayasan (Precy Garrido), Ayungon (Chona Maribao) and Guihulngan (Laarni Gularek). Amy Buluran initiated a fund drive among
members, and during the despedida party for Vivien and Jojo Garrovillo March 3, chapter treasurer Allen Garrido reported a collection of over $1200 from members and friends. SUAF also added $200. In addition several members made contribu-
