We miss you again today. Twelve Rotarians, three Rotary Anns, including myself are on our way to Bangkok, Thailand, “The Land of a Thousand Smiles” for the Rotary International Convention. Drumbeaters say, for delegates closer by, this is an opportunity to a great getaway, with all the dining, shopping and sightseeing opportunities of a major cultural capital.
We will not only enjoy the beautiful place but Convention, as well.
Let me thank Dir. Marilyn Barredo for presiding today’s meeting. I am sure you will all be in good hands. Dir. Marilyn and Dir. Cora Ocampo are the only members of the Board who are not joining the trip.
Fellow Rotarians, enjoy the meeting today! We will see you on May 19 as we will only be back on May 13.
We finally launched our project named : “Rotary Club of Baguio Knoxout Pollution” last April 27, 2012. Rotarians PN Uwe Koeller, Sec. Atom Mendalla, PP Veeh Balajo, PP Raffy Chan, Dir. Chris Faelnar, Rtn. Cecil Apostol, EIC Mark Flores, Rtn. Karl Flores and Spouse Joseph were in attendance.
The first phase of this project will cover painting of the posts of the Maharlika Overpass. We thank Boysen for donating some of the Knoxout paint.
Last week, we were rallying for additional contributions for the Rotary Children and grandchildren and we are happy to announce that we more than hit our target. We thank the following Rotarians who contributed for their children and grandchildren : PP Veeh Balajo-$200, Dir. Chris Faelnar-$200, PP Benny Sunga-$50 and Rtn. Cecil Apostol-$100. We were able to raise a total of $1,058.00.
We also thank Rtn. Glen Flores for contributing $100 (Sustaining PHF).
Thank you all for your generosity!
