The greatest gift of all mankind

Is our concern, the precious lives
With compassion we care and serve
Geared to pursue for excellence.

We declare with sincerity
The knowledge patiently to honesty
Regardless of nationality, creed, ideology
The creed, we value so faithfully
Playing our parts in history

Our founder's dream so laudable
We love and cherish this earnest goal
We pledge to accomplish, to uphold
Our responsibility throughout the world.

HIPOLITO MAXIMA FAMILY

HIPOLITO MAXIMA FAMILY

Hot food deliciously flavored and cooked with favorite seasonings
Incredibly luscious native dishes were appetizing and delightful
Poems about the blooming young ladies and gentlemen were read
Overwhelmed by the great singing voices of some family members
Lovely portraits of our parents and grandparents adorned the hall
Intelligent brains and talents were shown by younger generation
Toys, school supplies, costume jewelry, domestic items, vanities
Outstanding showmanship, pride of Hipolito and Maxima family
~
More door prizes were shared among the adult men and women
Adorable children  joined the adults in dancing, singing songs
X’mas, some members thought of about this enjoyable event
Indefatigable masters of ceremonies kept the family focused
Memories of the exciting moments will be etched in our hearts
Amazing was everyone's contribution to this wonderful affair
~
Frabjous and memorable day for the San Isidro Balatbat clan
Acquaintances were made among those who welcomed new ones
Mia and Emily from Illinois, USA traveled across the vast ocean 
Intrigued and very amused were those that attended this time 
Longing to enjoy the company and warmth feeling of everybody
Yearlong waiting for the next occasion that will be more fun
