Congrats to Bagong Buhay No 17

Mga Kuyang,

Join me in congratulating the recipients of the following awards:

Most Outstanding Lodge of Masonic District IV-A Cavite for MY 2008 : Bagong Buhay Lodge No. 17 F. & A.M. GLP

Most Oustanding Worshipful Master of Masonic District IV-A Cavite for MY 2008 : VW Bro NATHANIEL S. GOLLA PM, DGL, Bagong Buhay Lodge # 17 WM Masonic Year 2008

The awards were conferred during the District Turn-Over Cermonies of Masonic District IV-A Cavite on May 16, 2009 at Primera Luz Filipina Lodge No. 69 F. & A.M. GLP Temple. No less than the Grand Master, MW Bro Peter U. Lim Lo Suy of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of thePhilippines graced the ocassion.

To my mother lodge and her sons-- Congratulations!

To the Master of our lodge who piloted her to safety while rebuilding her along the way. I was a witness last year and I saw how he held on to that steering wheel like a real captain of an old galleon ship, gripping it so tight until his hands were numbed. But young as he was then, he never let go, thus our famous mantra in Bagong Buhay; "this too shall pass"; and he did steer us to the right direction. Congratulations Kuyang Nathz! May your tribe continue to increase.

On the level,

Brother Sernan Donacao

Huli man daw at magaling...Huli pa din...late na naman ako sa pagbati, ang bilis ng balita!

But this will not prevent me in congratulating our VW Dominador V. R. Eugenio, District Deputy Grand Master, Masonic District Region IV-A for 2009-2010; and all the recipient of awards during the District Turnover held at Primera Luz Filipina Lodge #69 Kawit Cavite last May 16, 2009.

Present during the occasion is no less than the Grand Master of Masons of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of thePhilippines: MW Bro Peter U. Lim LoSuy.

All for One...One for All.

Likewise, congratulations to our outgoing District Deputy Grand Master VW Bro Erwin Punzalan for his undying support and unselfish contribution to the Brotherhood during his term.

Our very own VW Bro Nathaniel S. Golla Sr. (now DGL) as the Most Outstanding Worshipful Master and Bagong Buhay Lodge #17 as the Most Outstanding Lodge for 2008. Para kang si Pacman pinakyaw mo lahat.

To the brethren whichsoever dispersed to remember and consider this memorable occasion as part of Masonic history of Region IV-A Cavite

If we hold on together I know our dreams will never die...

CONGRATULATIONS WB Nathz, and my beloved Mother Lodge, Bagong Buhay #17.

Looking back, it's almost expected, what with the leadership that inspired many to follow.

It reminds me of WBro Gen Tadiar who was the Master when I was raised. He was also the Most Outstanding WM and BB17 was Most Outstanding Lodge, two years
in a row. WB Nathz has definitely followed his footsteps and BEYOND.

Again, congratulations!

I'm proud 2 b 1.
