Congratulations to Hon Amb Macarthur F. Corsino: 19 June 2008

"Together Brethren!

Congratulations to Bro Macarthur "Mac" F. Corsino of Mt Kaladias Lodge No 91, Dumaguete City. He is truly a gem and brings honor to our fraternity.

Last June 19, 2008, Bro Mac took his oath as Philippine Ambassador to Cuba, with concurrent jurisdiction over the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Jamaica, before Hon. Secretary of Foreign Affairs Alberto G. Romulo.

His ambassadorial appointment by the President was confirmed by the Commission on Appointments last June 11, 2008 and will assume his post sometime August. He is returning to Oman soon where he is still the Philippine Consul General, but should be back in RP next month or early August before departing for Havana."

As emailed by Bro Augusto "Gus" E. Alvarez, PDGL, Rafael Palma Lodge # 147.

According to Bro Joji Bulawin; (who also extends his congratulations to our new Honorable Ambassador) said that Bro Mac Corsino, Phd is his former professor at Silliman University and a brother DeMolay from Leon Kilat Chapter (now Dumaguete Chapter).

The Daily Tribune also reported: "Macarthur Corsino, chief of mission, class II, as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Republic of Cuba with the concurrent jurisdiction over the Dominican Republic and the Republic of Haiti and Jamaica."

Our congratulations to the Hon Amb and Brother Mac Corsino!
