Celebrating Christmas in January

The Philippine Phytopathological Society, Inc. (PPS) Board of Directors held its Christmas Party last January 7, 2010 at the Kamayan Restaurant in Bay, Laguna. The officers and board members together with "old" PPS members participated in various games and exchange of gifts. This fun filled activity was highlighted by the soft launching of the "R.G. Davide Undergraduate Thesis Writing Support Grant". This grant shall be given annually to deserving Plant Pathology students.

The occasion was graced by none other than Dr. Romulo G. Davide and his wife. Dr. Davide is a highly distinguished educator, researcher, and an advocate of transferring generated agricultural technologies to people especially to farmers. Among those who also attended the party were Drs. Edna Ardales, Rizaldo Bayot, Avelino Raymundo, Evelyn Gergon, Angelita Talens, Rhodora Aldemita and Mr. and Ms. Toto Faner.
