Bulletin and Summon of Regular Stated Meeting July 16, 2016

Message from the East

WB Ivan Gerardo J. Banaag
Worshipful Master


Last July 4, 2016 we carried-out our yearly tradition of Sister Lodge visitation when we went to attend the stated meeting of Leonardo T. Pañares Lodge No. 220 in Cagayan de Oro City.  A very warm welcome were accorded us by WB Reuben Omar S. Plaza, Worshipful Master, & the rest of the members.  Dignitaries received includes RW Agapito S. Suan, Jr., JGW & our very own VW Oscar V. Badelles, JGL for Northern Mindanao.  The fellowship was held in Philtown Hotel & Oriental Garden Restaurant.  I would like to thank the brethren who accompanied me during the visit:  Bro. Alykhan U. Ali, SW, VW Jaime P. Magnetico, DGL, who was also the Masonic Education Speaker, & VW James T. Yu, PDDGM who provided us his vehicle.

Our District MD RX & ARMM Lanao Provinces were occupied with activities last weekend.  We had a Testimonial Dinner in honor of MW Voltaire T. Gazmin, Grand Master of Masons in the Jurisdiction of the Philippines held in Elena Tower Inn on July 9.  A Testimonial Toast was given by VW Warlito M. Sanguila, PDDGM before the Grand Master delivered his message.  Earlier in the afternoon, VW V.T. Gazmin attended Maranaw Lodge No. 111's stated meeting, his Mother Lodge.  Significance of the meeting aside from the Grand Master's presence was the signing of the District Sisterhood between our District RX & ARMM Lanao Provinces represented by VW Alan U. Buenaventura our DDGM & MD RVII (Cebu, Bohol & Siquijor) represented by their DDGM, VW Douglas S. Tan.  There were at least 40 brethren from the sister district who attended.

The next day, July 10, was the District-wide Golf Tournament/Family Fellowship (Amateur/Novato) held in Golf & Country Club of Iligan, Inc., Pindugangan, Iligan City.  Our lodge were represented mostly by seasoned players & special mention to Bro. John Yasser T. Sanguila who played under the Novato level.  The 2-day activity were covered by no other than WB Pat D. Noel, our immediate Past Master who take-charge of the documentation.  Our Lodge was assigned to chair the Transportation Committee, thanks to the following who assisted me & provided not only their vehicles but also their time that somehow the task given to us was handled smoothly, they were from Maranaw Lodge No. 111, VW Alan U. Buenaventura, DDGM, Bro. Jerome C. Cañete, SW, Bro. Clealan A. Catipay, JD., & Bro. Aitor E. Gonzales.  VW Samuel "Tatay" Huertas of Mantical Lodge No. 243.  From our lodge were Bro. Alykhan U. Ali, SW, VW James T. Yu, PDDGM, & Bro. Ted Bryan K. Yu, JD.

Thank you & May the GAOTU bless us all!
