News Boys Meet Up After Half A Century

Selling newspapers in the 50s became a fad even among children of families who can afford to send their children to school. But, some also did it to earn their weekly baon for school.

But, what is exciting is that many of those used-to-be newsboys are now professionals working in different fields.

The former newsboys of The Bohol Chronicle will gather for their first grand reunion in time for the celebration of the golden anniversary of the paper on May 16, 2004.

The reunion will include former Chronicle staffers.

In order to be included in the masterlist of former BC newsboys, one has to register with the reunion committee chaired by veteran Chronicle staffer Manny Bautista.  2004 News Archive Bohol Chronicle
