July 20, 2013 Bulletin and Notice of Stated Meeting

(From the Oriental Chair 
 WB Rogelio C. Nuñeza, Worshipful Master)

In our last stated meeting on June 15, 2013, Bro. Anthony Cañete passed the second degree of Masonry (Fellow craft).  I would like to extend my congratulations to Bro. Ali Bari, our Senior Warden, and other brethren on a job well done.

For Iliganons, the month of June is always highlighted by a parade around the city on Independence Day, June 12th and on the Araw ng Iligan, June 16th.  In this context, I would like to express my profound thanks and gratitude to those brethren who joined the said activities.  Let us continue supporting our team "Iligan Lodge-207".

The 3rd of July 2013 was a very sad moment in the history of our lodge because one of the pillars of masonry in our jurisdiction, the Very Worshipful Henry B. Padilla, the charter master of our lodge, dropped his working tools.  We will no longer see him in our meetings but the good memories that he shared with us will be forever in our hearts.  As I like to say, "old masons never die, they only fade away".  Our deepest sympathy to the Padilla family.

On a lighter note, it's very easy to look for Filipino brethren whenever I travel abroad since they have common trademarks such as caps, shirts and belts with Masonic emblem.   When you ask them for their lodge number, they are quick to answer but tend to forget who their worshipful master is.  Does this mean that these brethren have been absent for too long from lodge meetings or lost touch with their Masonic roots?

See you in our stated meeting brethren...
