Our Tri-District Convention (Nov 06-07, 2009), hosted by Urdaneta Lodge No 302 held at Urdaneta City, Pangasinan, has just been concluded with Siete Martires Lodge No 177 winning the bid (based on historical hosting rotation) to host the 24th Tri-District Convention to be held in San Fernando City, La Union on a date yet to be established; but traditionally within the month of November next year 2010.
Congratulations to the host lodge led by WM, Bro Edwin Orden & host district, led by DDGM VWBro Rex Alvin Bilagot for a convention well organized, well attended & very informative.
The Masonic Education conducted by VWBro Robert Asuncion was eye-popping even at the inevitable hours of drowsiness for the information contained therein are exactly what we needed to know.
Of note, is the attendance of our MW Bro Peter U. Lim Lo Suy who sat down with us in an informal manner & enlightened us on most of the things that were mysteries to most of us. Thank you MW Sir for coming down on the level & being as candid, frank & honest with us all [as it can be].
