Amity Lodge No 11 IGLPI Consituted: 11 Nov 2011

The number 11-11-11-11 is a lucky number so far as IGLPI is concerned. On the eleventh month , November, at the eleventh day, of the eleventh year of the year 2000; the eleventh Lodge of IGLPI was constituted in due and proper form.

The Lodge eventually satisfied the requirements to be chartered and numbered. It satisfied the primary criterion that it has initiated, passed and raised at least fifteen (15) Master Masons and other criteria specified under the IGLPI Philippine Masonic Law Book 2009, Part III, Administration of Lodges, Book I The Member Lodges, Article I Organization of a New Lodge, Section 7.

A Special Grand Assembly was convened by the Grand Master, MW Bro Cesar de Leon Go, with the presence of the Grand Lodge Officers at Pintong Bato Lodge No 9 at 3 pm and a large attendance of brethren from the Lodges in the jurisdiction of IGLPI for the primary purpose of constituting Amity Lodge No 11.

After the Lodge was constituted, an election of its officers was held. The chartered members were asked to apply for regular or plural membership by signing the newly adopted Lodge Constitution and By-Laws and pay the Lodge dues within the prescribed period and thus be eligible to vote and be voted upon.

The installation of elected and appointed lodge officers followed with MW Bro Joseph Capuyan as Installing Master, assisted by VW Bro Petronilo Bulanhagi as Master of Ceremonies, and VW Bro Teodulo Jeciel as Assistant Master of Ceremonies. Installed were the following lodge officers:

Worshipful Master - WM Arwen C Nacional, PM

Senior Warden - Bro Frederick R Masangkay

Junior Warden - Bro Adlai Jawid

Secretary - Bro William Belda

Auditor - VW Bro Rae M Jarder

Treasurer - Bro Jun Albania

I congratulate and extol the labors done by the founding charter members of Amity Lodge No 11 which mostly came from La Naval Lodge No 7 and Bagong Ilaw Lodge No 6, particularly, VW Bro Rae Jarder the First Master, VW Bro Aldo Olaguer, VW Bro Nic Bolanos, Bro Ray Valenzuela, VW Bro Bong Carranza, WBro Mark Limpin and others. They were joined by the elders MW Bro Joseph Capuyan PGM and MW Bro Nonoy Carranza Jr PGM.

The Lodge name “Amity” is very significant and meaningful for Masonry. Harmony and brotherly love will fuse them together to labor and sail the journey with IGLPI towards [TRUE] Masonry.

November 15, 2011 MW Bro Jaime V Bantolo, PGM, IGLPI.
