Dear fellow Rotarians,
Finally, we had our 13th Handover and Awards Ceremonies last August 28, 2004. I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to Congressman Joseph Emilio Abaya for his presence as our guest of honor. Despite the not so large crowd, he chose to stay and spent more of his time with us. I noticed that during the presentation of IPP Gabe of his accomplishments, Congressman Abaya was listening and looking attentively at the power point presentation especially if it was about community service projects. Of course, we shall never forget the support that he promised to our club. Likewise, I would like to thank Mayor Renato Abutan as our special guest and for his inspirational message. His message became more inspiring when he also promised his 100% support to our club, especially the financial support. Do not worry Mayor Nato; we will surely be knocking at your door. My sincerest thanks also to the CEZIA President, Mr. Nobuo Fujii of San Technology for gracing the occasion. During his inspirational message, he really caught the attention of the honorable Congressman who admitted that it was his first time to be here at the Cavite Economic Zone. But what I remember most in the message of Mr. Fujii was when he admitted that RC CEPZ is always inviting him in most of its activities but the CEZIA has never invited RC CEPZ in their occasions. So we are looking forward to your invitation, Sir. And last but not the least, I would thank our members and other guests present, most especially to Zone Administrator Dante Quindoza who helped me in welcoming Congressman Abaya, to PP Boyet Castro who arranged the invitation to our guest of honor, PP Jess Cabel for the good tips and suggestions, IPP Gabe Trias for the backdrop and printing of invitation, Sec. Marni Sy who was in-charge of registration and program, and to those who celebrated with us, Dir. Amy, Dir. Dong, Dir. Egay, VP Cyril, Rtn. Norma, Rtn. Jackie, Rtn. Narry, Rtn. Beda, Rtn. Connie, Baby Rotarians Liza and Roland, the Rotaractors led by Pres. Grace of Rotaract Club of CEPZ and Pres. Anda of Rotaract Club of CEPZ West, and my classmate Durick Pichay of RC Rosario Magdiwang and his two members. Special thanks to the Rotaract Live Band who provided us entertainment that night. To all the awardees and recipients of plaques given by IPP Gabe, congratulations and keep up the good work. More so, congratulations to IPP Gabe for the job well done and the several awards he received from the District.
Last August 27, we had the 7th week of our feeding program at Tejeros Convention Elem. School. Thanks to those Rotarians who are usually present and supporting this regular activity.
As we end this month and enter our third month of service, let us keep our momentum in implementing good projects and we continue to Celebrate Rotary!
PRES. NILO NEPOMUCENO
