The ERDB once again joined the traditional parade to celebrate the 99th UPLB Loyalty Day and Alumni Homecoming last October 10, 2017. With the theme, “UPLB Alumni: Creating Innovative Change for a More Competitive Philippine Agriculture”, the ERDB contingent came in with green umbrellas.

The parade started at 7AM from the Alumni Plaza to the D. L. Umali Hall. Special performances were presented by the alumni, faculty members, staff, students and other government agencies within UPLB.

Among those present in the occasion were UPLB Chancellor Fernando C. Sanchez, Jr., past administrators, and UPLB jubilarians (those who graduated in years ending in 2 and 7).

A short program followed at the Nemencio B. Mendiola Hall Lobby as part of the “Luncheon Salu-salo” at the Baker Hall for the announcement of the best float and performance.

The traditional Los Baños Flower and Garden Show was also held from October 6-15, 2017 at the Senior’s Social Garden. It also featured landscape exhibits, individual plant and orchid competition and product displays. Marla V. Cambay, TTD
