Bro. Mario,

Thank you for your thoughts, and if you happen to visit New Jersey, you are welcome.

Brothers Mario and Oscar, thank you for your congratulatory remarks.

Plaridel Lodge No. 302 was authorized to operate U.D. in January, 2009, presented a Warrant [commonly known as 'Charter' in other jurisdictions] in April 16, 2009 during the 222nd ANCOM of New Jersey Grand Lodge, and constituted on June 15, 2009. All of these were happening at the same time with the chartering of Fil-Can Cabletow Lodge #189 in Manitoba, Canada while Phil-Can Lodge No. 137 - Montreal, Quebec, Canada, was celebrating its 31st year; Jose Rizal Lodge No. 1172 in the 4th Manhattan District, New York City, its 25th year; and Solidarity Lodge No. 1457 - Houston, TX, its 16th year.

With best fraternal regards to all at GLP:

RW Bro. Ross Rosales, PDRI - GL of NJ
Jr Warden - Plaridel Lodge No. 302
Enterprise Lodge No. 31 (NJ) [Affiliated]

Congratulations. We really are the mushrooms of the world. We Pinoys, Masons and everyone in other professions, grow everywhere.

But I would say that more often than not, we forget to list down the members of the newly constituted lodge who are as important as the officers.

May I know who are the members, kuyang?

Again, my best wishes to all of you.
