The chapter’s Christmas tradition of decorating the Mamicpic’s Christmas tree was participated by Dr. McCann, Dr. Dennis McCann, Dr. Angel C. Alcala, Dr. Ben S. Malayang III, Bill and Susan (Monte de Ramos) Soldwisch among others. A moment of remembering environmentalist, Gina Lopez was expressed through the reading of Atty. Grace A. Sumalpong’s tribute to Lopez. Atty. Sumalpong worked closely with Lopez when she headed the ABS-CBN Foundation and the Pasig River Rehabilitation Center (PRRC). A round of Christmas carol singing in preparation for the chapter’s caroling activity and fundraising, gave the alumni gathering a more festive feel.
