Message from the Worshipful Master - May Stated Meeting

Greetings my brethren.

I would like to acknowledge and thank the brethren who joined me to the ANCOM 2010 last April 22 to 24, 2010 namely, SW Jimmy Magnetico, JW Abel Gomez, WB Ed Ulindang, WB Dominic Siao, Bro. Carl Chan, Bro. Sandy Sy, and Bro. Ali  Bari.  The venue, SMX Convention Center, was great and world-class, but the hosts were not - they did not even have a printed copy of the program!  The delegates had to fend for themselves as there were no directions nor instructions from the organizers.

Bro. Abel Gomez gave a strong delivery of the white lambskin apron during the National Elocution Contest held at the Grand Lodge, but unfortunately, he did not get the nod of the judges.  Still, we are very proud of Bro. Abel.

RW Juanito G. Espino, Jr. was overwhelmingly elected as Junior Grand Warden during the ANCOM. He received 898 votes out of the 1,105 votes cast in the first balloting.  The new officers were then installed at the Grand Lodge last April 24, 2010 together with our new DDGM Ben Alipio and the DGLs Ed Banawa and Joseph Sanguila.  Fittingly, Davao won the bid as the site of the next ANCOM since RW Juanito Abergas, who will be installed as the next Grand Master, spent a great portion of his Masonic life there.   In a way, it will be a homecoming for him.

Just before leaving for Manila, I personally gave the P4,500.00 raised last meeting to Sister Fe Reconalla, who was then confined at the Mercy Community Hospital.  As to the P5,000.00 coming from our general fund, I would be requesting Bro. Abel Gomez to help me deliver the same to Sis Fe Reconalla since I do not know her current residence.  The brethren are requested to include her in your daily prayers to the GAOTU.   -  WB Oscar V. Badelles
