Ka Noel Received The Books - see letter below
We received 10 boxes of the Memorabilia Books containing
10 books per box delivered by Ricky today. They are
secured inside my office and will wait for further instructions
from you, Nel and Raul on the distribution mechanics.
I have scanned the book and i think it is a work
of art by itself. I guess I was not mistaken when I
said it will be "A BOOK OF A LIFETIME !"
personally very pleased to be a part of this great Memorabilia.
Congratulations for a job very well done!
Memorabili Book On Its Way To Paete
The first batch of Memorabilia books will soon
be in Paete. The Mayor, Sangguniang Bayan and the Tourism
Office will have the privilege of previewing the first
copies of the Paete Memorabilia 2004. The copies for
subscribers in Paete and some in Metro Manila will be
distributed later during the book launching in Paete.
(Date to be announced later by the Mayor). A few copies
will be brought back to U.S.A. by balikbayans currently
copies will be shipped in September (it will take about
a month to reach New York) and then mailed out to various
mailing addresses are being completed. If you have changed
your address since 2005, kindly inform us of the new
address. Also, if you have a Postal Office Box, please
send us your actual address. The book is large (9-1/2"
x 12") and heavy, 6 lbs. 3 oz. so it probably won't
fit the P.O. Box. Those who subscribed via phone &
email and did not fill up the pledge/contract form,
we need your mailing addresses.
effective September 1, 2006, the cost of book will be
raised to $60 (or Pesos 3,000 if paid thru Rural Bank
of Paete) to defray the expensive cost of shipping and

long wait will soon be over. The Printer assured us that
the books will be released at the end of August, 2006.
am very happy and excited to announce that I have obtained
an advance copy of the book and the finished product looks
very satisfactory. (See photo of the cover, book case and
enlarged picture from tatlong krus on the inside cover).
to Raul Roque, our Metro Manila coordinator, whose patience
and persistence guaranteed a high-resolution cover . Moreover,
his group called “the rainbow coalition” also
helped in the final proofreading to ensure that there are
no errors or less errors possible. But we are equally grateful
to our kababayan printer whose cooperation and critical
work helped in producing an excellent quality book. Unlike
other printers who just print whatever is submitted to them,
our printer went out of their way to check and double check
everything, informing us of anything wrong – spelling
or otherwise – so that the necessary correction or
changes are made. This cautious but wise approach somewhat
delayed the printing and binding. But it is worth the wait
as you will soon find out. The Northeast officers and guests
who saw the copy of the book during the Officers’
meeting last Sunday all agreed that the book is really nice
and worth to be called, “Paete’s book of a lifetime.”
you have noticed, there is a special bonus to the book.
Each book has a sturdy cardboard book case that will protect
and preserve the book. Very professionally done. The enlarged
photos of the town --from Tatlong Krus and from Wawa Park
– that adorned the inside and back covers give an
added lasting impression of our beautiful town.
you are planning to order extra copies, please order now.
We only have limited copies available. The book weighs 6
lbs. and 3 oz, quite heavy, which makes the shipping and
handling difficult. Because of the bulk and expensive cost
of shipping, effective September 1, 2006 all extra copies
purchased will cost $60 per copy (Pesos 3,000 if paid thru
Rural Bank of Paete).
are planning a simple book launching in Paete for the distribution
to all subscribers in Paete and Metro Manila. For overseas
(USA, Canada, etc), the books will be shipped to New York
( takes at least a month) and then forwarded to Paetenian
Chapters in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Toronto. If there
is any Paetenian who will be in Paete in September/ October,
please let us know. Perhaps he/she can bring back to USA
or Canada a few copies instead of waiting for the shipment
time to time, updates on the shipping, handling, and distribution
of the book will be posted in the Memorabilia Website c/o
Col. Lando Malinis. (go to www.paete.org
and click on the memorabilia logo on the right or go www.paete.org/memorabilia/
). We will keep the memorabilia website open until the final
distribution and accounting have been made. ***Fred M. Cagayat
