DDGM RW Aldo R. Smith Honored

Following an historic Stated Meeting on May 11, 2012, the Brethren and guests converged in the Collation room to honor RW Aldo R. Smith, the immediate past DDGM of the 4th Manhattan District and his staff officers: RW Carlito Gallardo, VW Mon Cruz, AGL, VW Rolly Tupaz. Since the elections took a toll in time spent, an anticipated program consisting of sing-along did not materialize. After a sumptuous dinner graciously served under the direction of JW Bro. Tom Benolerao and his wife, Sister Jeanne, a specially tailored barong Pilipino was presented to RW Aldo Smith as a token of Jose Rizal Lodge’s appreciation. In response, he expressed his gratitude and recounted his association with JRL. “I truly enjoyed my time with you and I’ll never forget it. I’ll still be around, so call on me if you need me.” He said.

Last 15 minutes

It has been said that the best part of a movie is the last 15 minutes where all the characters move together to complete the story. The suspense that made your heart thump and hold your breath finally comes to a beautiful end allowing you to exhale at last. And so it is with our journey in the East. The best part that completes our story is being able to hear the new Master say,” The Lodge is now 
open and in order for business…”
