Elocution on the "Lambskin Apron"
Elocution on the "Lambskin Apron" was first held at Tubod, Lanao del Norte last October 31, 2009 at the lobby of the office of Lanao Norte Electric Co., with the able leadership of VW Lyndon L. Abucay, DDGM. Iligan Lodge No. 207 was ably represented by Bro. Hilario Abel Gomez, who as they say, "Took home the bacon". He was pitted against the representatives of Maranaw Lodge No. 111, Manticao Lodge No. 243, Judge Valerio V. Rovira Lodge No. 259, Lake Lanao Lodge No. 227, Rajah Indrapatra Lodge No. 387 and the host lodge, Glicerio A. Lim Memorial Lodge No. 222.
The judges of the contest were VW Lyndon Abucay, DDGM, VW Stephen So, PDDGM and VW Warlito Sanguila, PDDGM. Indeed the event was very much successful.
Bro. Abel Gomez caught the attention of the judges right at the start.
A clear, crisp and well-pitched voice steered our entry to a sure seat.
"...and from your nerveless grasp shall drop forever the working tools of life..."
"...well done thou good and faithful servant..."
The brethren awaiting the results of the contest outside the beautiful office of Laneco.
All the nights of practicing finally made all the thrill of waiting and tension all worth it...
