Bulletin and Summon of Regular Stated Meeting January 18, 2020

Message from the East
Bro. TED BRYAN K. YU
Worshipful Master

Greetings Brethren!

Last December stated meeting, we have concluded a successful election of officers for Masonic Year 2020-2021.  To be led b our Worshipful Master-Elect, Bro. John Yasser Sanguila, I believe in his capabilities and leadership to lead the Lodge under which we are  a member of.  I wish nothing less but better success in his term and more activities for us, the members, to participate especially in our usual Charity works and Family gatherings.

I am looking forward to more conferral of degrees as well if the candidates will be admitted into our craft in their right time.  We really cannot distinguish a perfect candidate but as long as he believes in God and is righteous with good morals, we can always make good men better.

I would like to give my deepest appreciation to my officers of Masonic Year 2019-2020 and to all the members who have been part of my Masonic Journey as Master of the Lodge.  Without your help and participation, it wouldn't have been successful in any other way.  I am really thankful and blessed to have your support.

TOGETHER BRETHREN!
May the Great Architect of the Universe bless us all!!!

Bulletin and Summon of Regular Meeting December 21, 2019

Message from the East
Bro. TED BRYAN K. YU
Worshipful Master

Greetings Brethren!

The Masonic Year 2019-2020 is almost about to end.  The holidays is also fast approaching and lined up as one of our yearly tradition is the gift giving and feeding program to the kids confined at City Hospital's wards.  This activity will be at 10:30AM this Saturday, December 21, 2019 at the City Hospital to be followed by Lunch at Sunburst Restaurant beside the establishment.

Our brothers from the appendant body, Shriners International, headed y the incumbent President and Vice-President, Noble T. Yu and Noble Alykhan Ali, respectively, are planning on teaming up with our Lodge for the gift giving.  They will be coming up with toys and exciting clown acts to cheer up the kids at the wards.  Together, as Mason, we will make a difference this coming Holiday Season and let our community feel loved through our simple gestures.

Our elections for the officers of Masonic Year 2020-2021 will also happen this stated meeting, thereby, encouraging all the members to attend and show their support.

Moreover, I will also be presenting the proposal and study to the Iligan Lodge members for the adjustment of Annual Dues to give way and gratification to our Life Members who have been members in good standing for 25 years and up.  With this action, it will may be encourage the inactive members to go back and support our lodge or entice members from other lodges to be member of our lodge too.

See you all this Stated Meeting!

TOGETHER BRETHREN!
May the Great Architect of the Universe bless us all!

Bulletin and Summon of Regular Stated Meeting November 16, 2019

Message from the East
Bro. TED BRYAN K.YU
Worshipful Master

Greetings Brethren!

Firstly, I would like to applaud Bro. John Yasser Sanguila for a job well done in conducting the stated meeting last October 2019.  My apologies to the brethren for I had important matters to attend to.

I am glad to formally invite our Brother Musa Sanguila for having been obligated as member of Iligan Masonic Lodge No. 207 last stated meeting.

Last October 24, 2019, our very own Brother Rene Tan passed away at Makati Medical Center after dauntlessly fighting cancer.  Through the efforts of the brethren, we have opened the lodge of sorrow and had planned for the 3rd  degree funeral rites for our Brother Rene Tan which happened last November 3, 2019.  we are very thankful of VW Stephen Monterroyo for leading the Funeral Rites Ceremony.

                "The day's labors done, my journey's end has come.
                                     A new guide, now lead us on.
                   The path may be the same, but this style, is his own.
               A new post, will soon pass, another mark will be reached.
                    Let us all pray, he will lead us, to an even brighter day."

Holiday Season is fast approaching, brethren.  As a customary practice in our lodge, we will be having activities like feeding program, gift giving, and charity works to share our blessings and resources to the indigent and lest fortunate.

TOGETHER BRETHREN!
May the Great Architect of the Universe bless us all!
