The Balik Paete 2012 was a success !! This event would not have not been possible had it not been for Pat Caguin-Ong, the over--all Coordinator with the able assistance of Fely Baldemor-Reinders, co- and US Coordinator and Saida Cagandahan-Dulay, Philippine Coordinator. They worked tirelessly without remuneration and with the constant danger of being criticized. I also want to say thank you to the Officers and Members of the PI Chapters who contributed specially Southern California under the leadership of Francis Adefuin and Northwest Canada under Norma Acala-Duy. Special mention to Allan Ong who coordinated with Bobeth Castillo of Sweet Anne Band giving us excellent music during the Sabado de Gloria Ball, Dan Cunanan who stuck it out and Simeon Bagalso, coordinators of the Basket Ball Tournament, Samson Bagalso and Doc Nilo Valdecantos, emcees at the Sabado de Gloria Ball.

The Municipality of Paete, Mayor Cadayona, Vice Mayor Mutuc Bagabaldo, the Sanguniang Bayan, Barangays and the town people cooperated as well. Judge and Mrs. Nicholas Fadul invited the Balikbayans for dinner, Norie Balquiedra for lunch in her farm house in Mabitac, Meg Stephenson for dinner and Florsan gave puto at the Sabado de Gloria Ball. The canned tuna (Frabelle) was courtesy of the Ongs, and the beautiful decoration due to Nelda Bagabaldo. Boy Calabig also needs to be mentioned for his assistance in the canned good distribution, food preparation and car service. Beth Baes arranged for the repair of the dance floor and assisted in so many ways specially manpower. To Dr. Tess Obial Aquino, thank you for allowing us to use Quinolob and to the BOLERO Club for relinquishing the Sabado de Gloria Ball to PI. There are many more in Paete who extended their hands to make this a happy, memorable and trouble free Balik Paete.

To the three ladies who graciously accepted the invitation to grace Balik Paete with their beauty, Edith Casilag Siegenthaler, Margie Lozano Rodillo and Nora Agbada Milan, I thank you and Paete thanks you.

To everyone, Paetenians and non-Paetenians who participated in the activities, thank you.

There were shortcoming and deficiency which I hope participants will try to overlook and not take as personal affront.

Zosimo (DocTabia) Adefuin, MD

Thank you Doc Tabia for your epilogue which summarized and wrapped up the recent successful Balik Paete. Thank you for your leadership and honorable presence. You were the uniting factor of this event. We wish that we were there too to enjoy the camaraderie and Paete's unique ambiance. Special thanks to Winston Hernas, Net Feldman and Vice Mutuk who shared the photos of the events. Winston's Day by Day coverage with photos and videos are extensive and comprehensive. Thanks for being there and sharing the coverage for other Paetenians.
