Congratulations to RC Sta. Rosa Centro!
By Rtn Myrna Valle
The Fernbrook Gardens in New Alabang was the venue of the RYD 3820 2014 District Recognition and Awards Ceremony or DRAC. All over the areas covered by District 3820, Rotarians flocked together in their finest attires; after all, it was to be the night when the crème of the crop shall be honoured and acknowledged.
Governor Danny Ona banged the gavel to open the event, and soon after the Opening Remarks given by FCP Eric Diaz, the masters of ceremony proceeded to announce the awards bestowed by the district governor to the hard-working Rotarians of District 3820.
Our own FCP Doray Lucero was repeatedly called to receive awards garnered by our Club, so many times that we lost count. It was a long but fruitful night, culminated by the announcements of the Most Outstanding Club, Most Outstanding President and Most Outstanding Secretary, all of which were bagged by RC Tanauan and received by their president, FCP Bong Castillo.
In his speech, DG Danny Ona thanked his First Class Presidents and all the Rotary Clubs of District 3820 for helping him achieve his goals, in particular in the areas of TRF and Membership.
Also notable during the ceremony was the sincere apology imparted by the host club through President Eric Diaz about the problems encountered with the caterer. In the true spirit of Rotary, the crowd cheered and applauded RC Sta. Rosa for their noble act.
Again, congratulations to Centro for a job well done!
