Bulleting and Summon of Stated Meeting January 16, 2016


WB Pat D. Noel
Worshipful Master


Brethren, let us give thanks to the Great Architect of the   Universe for giving us a beginning of a new season, a new hope, and a new inspiration!  Let me also thank everyone who gave their support and made their presence felt during the District Family Day held at Blue Jay, Linamon, Lanao del Norte.  The whole event was quite successful!  Thanks to the district officers led by VW Ian Uy and to VW Jing Rahon, VW Allan Buenaventura, VW Romulo Tapia for giving us such a wonderful year!  The children had so much fun, especially during the time of the Magician!  From the kids to the young at heart, really enjoyed it.

Let me congratulate our incoming Worshipful Master, WB elect Ivan J. Banaag, our SW elect Bro. Alykhan U. Ali and our JW elect Bro. Khaliquzzaman Macabato.  Thanks to our     Secretary elect, VW Warlito M. Sanguila for his invaluable support during my term, to our Treasurer elect, WB Jaime P. Magnetico for really being patient with me. All were   unanimously elected during our stated meeting last December 2015. And to  the appointed officers, congratulations.

This will be my last stated meeting as your Worshipful Master, and I would sincerely take this opportunity to thank each and everyone for the support.  May the GAOTU continue to bless all of us, always!
