Last April 8, 2018 we held the first ever family reunion of Apong Tali’s Pangilinan Family at Lumanog Farmville Resort, Santo Tomas Pampanga. The families of the & children of Apong Tali came together to get to know each other and celebrate.
Catalina Vega Pangilinan, lovingly called Apong Tali, was the family’s matriarch. Her husband which for some reason no one in the family knows the name or what happened to him was not around as the siblings were growing up and made their own families so the known head of the clan was Apong Tali (tho technically, great grandfather was the Pangilinan). They had 7 children that I believe Apong Tali raised on her own in Minalin, Pampanga.
The 7 families were:
Lola Poling, the one in the middle of the photos, is the current matriarch and the only one left of the 7 siblings.
Tho, preparation was kind of hectic, everyone put effort in preparing for the event and with the generous sponsors, everyone had a blast from all the food, games and raffle prizes!
It was a fun day! It was nice seeing the families get together and meet family members we haven’t seen/ known before. It wasn’t as smooth sailing as we wanted it to be and we had problems here and there but ultimately, everyone enjoyed and had a great time and that is what matters. And this is the first of this kind and as what our elders promised, next year’s reunion will be bigger and better! \(^▽^)/
