Rotary Weekend Reunion

Rotary Boracay

Douglas Fabilane

In what was to be a Rotarization of new members turned into something even better – a reunion of two Clubs separated by a hundred kilometer distance from one another, and a generation gap. The Rotary Club of Boracay and the mother club, the Rotary Club of Kalibo forged a momentous event.

On July 11-12, 2015, 12 Rotarians, mostly past presidents from Rotary Club of Kalibo, headed by Assistant Governor for Zone 4, Rotary District 3850, AG Raphy Tayco, visited Boracay for the New Members Orientation Seminar. The two-day seminar held at the Seawind Resort was to familiarize both the new members and old members on the basics of Rotary.

AG Raphy discussed about the history of the Rotary, what is it all about and what Rotary has done to change the world. Past President Vady Marin shared his expertise in Rotary protocols and the organization’s guiding principle, the Four Way Test. Past Presidents Bing Santa Maria, Nolly Sodusta and Rotarian Alexey Apolonio discussed the Five Avenues of Services of Rotary on the second day.

Twelve Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Boracay attended the Orientation Seminar.

The two-day session ended with sumptuous dinner and lunch, and highlighted with light conversations, laughter and photo shoots. Members of the Rotary Club of Boracay were thankful of the knowledge and fruitful experience gained from the ever supporting Rotarians of the mother club, Rotary Club of Kalibo.
