President's Message

Dear fellow Rotarians,

ALAY LAKAD is WALK FOR A CAUSE – for the ALAY LAKAD FOUNDATION, INC., a non-government and non-profit organization dedicated in the service of the YOUTH. That it is held every SEPTEMBER makes this month otherwise known as the NEW GENERATION MONTH.

This year, the Alay Lakad was held last Sunday, September 5, 2005. Nineteen (19) participants from our Club were checked and recorded by District monitors. The walk from the Aliw Theatre to the Quirino Grandstand was an opportunity to see Fellow Rotarians specially my Classmates 101 lead their delegation not so much for the prize but for the sake of participation. It was indeed fun walking the streets of Manila sans the monster traffic that is normally associated with it.

RI asks each and every Rotarian to a role model for the YOUTH – in any way they do. Your 101 President agree 101 per cent! In fact, this role should not only be for the New Generation Month of SEPTEMBER but for the whole Rotary Year and beyond. For this purpose, we should now hasten the re-organization of the ROTARACT! Before the INTERACT, the ROTARACT is the immediate source of membership recruitment for our Club. Let’s all exert efforts to make the Saturday schedule of the said reorganization a success.

Last night was our Area meeting at the Chi-Lin Restaurant, Imus, Cavite and jointly hosted by RC Hiyas ng Imus and RC Imus East. We received words of praise from Tess Matriano for our Club Bulletin’s regular edition, sometimes exceeding the usual four (4) edition in a month.

Today, September 6th, Tuesday, we will hold a Joint Meeting with our new Sister Club, the Rotary Club of Parañaque-Sucat. The corresponding Sister Club Agreement will likewise be signed during the said joint meeting. This will be our third sister club thus far!

As usual, the Feeding Program will be Friday, September 9. The sponsor is the Rotary Club of West Icheon. Please attend the said project. Lately, some of the original guys are fading!!
