Installation of 2010 Officers of Free and Accepted Masons of the Philippines : Iligan Lodge No. 207

On January 16, 2010 the newly elected and appointed officers of the Iligan Lodge No. 207 was installed at the Ubaldo Laya Masonic Center with VW Gerardo D. Paguio as guest speaker. WB Eduardo D. Ulindang was the installing officer, 2009 Worshipful Master. Master of Ceremonies was VW Eufemio Calio while the assistant MC was VW Genesis Calit. Fellowship dinner followed at the 7th floor of the Ma. Cristina Hotel .

Filipino tradition requires the brethren to be in Barong Pilipino, but to distinguish the elected and appointed officers from the rest of the members of Iligan Lodge No. 207, they decided to wear coat and tie which turned out to be quite pleasant to look at.

Below are some photos during the installation.
