July 2012 Iligan Lodge No. 207 Bulletin

Message from the Worshipful Master - WB Hilario Abel B. Gomez

"The Labor is plenty but the Work is not done."

Yes, fellow Laborers are mobilizing towards the fulfillment of our goals for this Masonic year.  As we continue growing for the next half-year, let us all be brother-in-arms in accomplishing the Work.  We are but one in the spirit of brotherhood.  As a unified element, the stronger and more fruitful we will be in our endeavors as craftsmen.

Last month, we welcomed Bro. Ivan Banaag, our youngest Mason in the Lodge.  Let's make his journey with us enlightened with the general ideals and principles each one of us is called for.  For the rest of the year, we are looking forward to more incoming conferral of petitioners.  The more we breed, the more we become productive craftsmen.

The Lodge celebrated a day early Arbor Day last June 24 by planting 50 trees in Brgy. Bonbonon.  This is the opening salvo in fulfilling our Lodge Park full of trees and flowers which the barangay officials have already approved.  Other projects in the offing are the inter-high school oratorical contest, centennial landmark, and Masonic photo exhibit through the years, to name but a few.

In the spirit of fraternal brotherhood, let us look forward to our "kapitbisig barkadahan" Lodge members get-together.  Likewise, let us be One Family as we bring together our respective families to our most-awaited wholesome family bonding moment.

So, together brethren, we move on.
