Theoprolia Clarin of Sevilla: Bb Pilipinas- Bohol 1968

Theoprolia Clarin:  Bb Pilipinas- Bohol 1968
 The year was 1968. It was the height of the swinging 60’s and Bohol’s loveliest ladies were all giddy with excitement. 

The reason for all the hoopla? 

Binibining Pilipinas Charities led by Madame Stella Marquez de Araneta had granted the Bohol Jaycees, then an all- male socio- civic organization, the franchise to organize a local Bb Pilipinas search that would select Bohol’s official representative to the 1968 Bb. Pilipinas Pageant.

That year, a sweet and charming beauty from Sevilla was named Bb. Pilipinas- Bohol 1968 and, along with Emma Mumar, got the chance to represent Bohol in the nationwide beauty search for the Bb Pilipinas- Universe crown held by Pilar Pilapil of Cebu.

On January 4, 1969 barely a year after competing in the national finals, she exchanged lifetime vows with  a Bohol Jaycee stalwart that she met during the Bohol pageant. The debonair and popular Jaycee member was smitten with the beautiful Sevilla lady that he pursued her and the rest is history.

The name of the lady?  Theoprolia Clarin who is affectionately called Polia or Pol. And the gentleman? He was Mike Parras.

The marital union produced four children, namely; Gerthrude Rizza, Marcel Mikelo, Estelle Liana and Cecile June.

Your Roving Eye is very grateful to the well- bred and very poised Ma’am Polia who graciously said yes to a request for some photos to go with this feature two days before she went back to the United States with her youngest child Cecile June. 

Thanks also to Estelle Liana for the additional info.
