Message from the Worshipful Master - March Stated Meeting

Greetings my brethren!

I would like to acknowledge the brethren who joined me in Cagayan de Oro City last February 26 to 27, 2010 for the 54th Mindanao Masonic Convention.  Our lodge was well represented by the three lights, myselft, SW Jimmy Magnetico, JW Abel Gomez with Bro. Carlito Chan, Jr., and VW James Yu. It was very well attended with about 730 registered delegates.  Food and refreshments were plentiful.  The guest speaker Congressman Rufus Rodriguez gave a very rousing talk during the Grandmaster's Night.  The next MinCom, by the way, will still be in Cagayan de Oro City to commemorate the centennial or 100th year of Masonry in Mindanao.

I guess some were disappointed that JW Abel Gomez did not get to compete in the elocution contest which was supposed to be the highlight of the  Grandmaster's Night.   The good news being that MW Peter Lim Lo Suy had decided to forego with the competition and instead automatically qualify all three contenders from Mindanao to the national finals during the Ancom.  This is getting more exciting.  So let us continue giving our support to Brod Abel - let's go to the Ancom!

This coming Saturday starting at 2:00 o'clock p.m., we will be conferring the second degree of Masonry upon Bro. Genesis Olandag.  The brethren are requested to come early and bear witness to the passing of a brother to receive more light in Masonry.

I am told by our Brother Secretary that our amnesty program has gotten favorable feedback from some of our inactive and suspended brethren.  I would like to ask the brethren to help us disseminate this information so that more long lost brethren can avail themselves of this opportunity.   -  WB Oscar V. Badelles
