Dear fellow Rotarians,

After almost 5 months of hard work, I think everybody deserve a rest and have some fun. So last November 30, 2004, we had the RC CEPZ Bowling Fellowship with our partners in service and friends of Rotary at the Sports Cove of Island Cove Resort and Leisure Park. The night was filled with fun and fellowship; everyone had the chance of stretching their muscles and enjoys the game. Congratulations to the individuals who got the highest score Dir. Egay Montano and Rtn. Norma Valeroso for the Rotarians and Mr. Tony Alonzo and Ms. Tess Ante for the Non-Rotarians, both of them are my office mates in CEZ.

Last Friday we did not have our feeding program at Tejeros Convention Elementary School because classes were suspended in most part of Luzon due to typhoon Yoyong. But on Sunday, December 5, 2004, our Rotaractors from RAC CEPZ had resumed their weekly project of Read A Book for the out-of-school youth of Brgy. Tejeros. Again, I commend RAC CEPZ led by Pres. Grace Labrador for this laudable project.

Going back to the recent typhoons, I enjoined everybody to pray for the eternal repose of the soul of the fatalities of this calamity. As a quick response to the needs of the victims, District 3810 had launched a donation campaign wherein the different Clubs from the District and the friends of Rotary are encouraged to bring their donations whether in cash or in kind. RC CEPZ had donated 8 boxes of sardines and 26 boxes of noodles from the Club fund and contributions of Sec. Marni and yours truly; 1 balikbayan box of used clothes from Dir. Amy; 3 bags of used clothes and 1 bag of old shoes from Rtn. Liza; 1 bag of used clothes from Rtn. Jeck and 1 bag of noodles from RAC CEPZ. My deepest appreciation to those Rotarians who had responded to a worthy cause. Based on the information I gathered from the District, as of today, December 7, 2004, there are already Php 350,000 donations in cash and Php 700,000 worth of goods, and hundreds of volunteers packing the relief goods. First shipment is set on December 9, 2004 in Real and Infanta, Quezon.

Congratulations to District 3810 led by DG Joel Tinitigan, indeed, it is a Rotary Service at Work.
