TREASURE: Rio Grande's First Chapter Officers

As I was looking for old files of Rio Grande Chapter in the Masonic Center just this afternoon, I found a very valuable piece of history, the very first chapter officers of Rio Grande Chapter, Order of DeMolay. Also included is the pioneering officers and members of the Mother's Club of RGC.

This page is included in the souvenir book of the 10th District Convention of Lodges Comprised in Masonic District No. 26 under the jurisdiction of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the Philippines with the theme, "Masonry in Youth Development". It was held on December 13, 1980. 

My fellow DeMolays, you seldom find a valuable piece of history like this so I encourage you to look at the photo and be proud that you are a member of DeMolay specifically of Rio Grande Chapter.

RGC Conducts DeMolay Education to AAC

Members of Rio Grande Chapter, Order of DeMolay travelled to Midsayap and conducted a lecture about DeMolay to the pioneering batch of Apolinario A. Corpuz Chapter last November 12, 2011.

Senior DeMolays Bro. Chris John de la Cruz, Bro. Adrian Meriales, Bro. Genghis Khan Manero, Bro. Khaizzar Ampang and incumbent Master Councilor Bro. Wealtho John Merillana gave their time to help AAC educate their pioneering batch of 17 petitioners and familiarize them to the history, mission and lessons of DeMolay.

The team was received and accommodated by Bro. Rande Len Moralde, Bro. Rey Celestial and Bro. RJR Alvaro. These are the Senior DeMolays stationed in Midsayap who instigated for the establishment of a DeMolay Chapter in their area.

We hope the pioneering batch of AAC Chapter have learned all the lessons that were shared to them and that they will apply it to themselves as their membership in DeMolay succeeds.

Apolinario A. Corpuz Chapter of Midsayap recently got their Letters Temporary from the Supreme Council, Order of DeMolay of the Republic of the Philippines  that was presented during the Mindanao Jurisdictional Conclave in Cotabato City held last October.

To AAC Chapter and its adult volunteers, goodluck and live the DeMolay way!
