We did have two (2) long busy weeks and there is still so much to do. 14 September – The Joint Induction of the Interact held at the Baguio City High School Auditorium was a success! High school students from our four (4) Interact Clubs, came with their advisers, in full attendance and ready to fellowship with each other. The Induction itself was solemn and meaningful as Dir. Cora gave an inspiring charging. Rotarians in attendance gladly pinned the Interact pins for the officers. To further enrich the minds and hearts of the students, Jessonmar Fabi, a young, smart, energetic and son of our very own Rtn. Lani, gave a thought provoking piece on how to have meaningful and productive lives. All groups gamely made their presentations to the delight of everyone! In the morning of the above-mentioned date, our very own Rtn. Naas was the speaker of the Saint Louis Faculty where he spoke of the K plus 12 program and advocating professionalism in the service. 15 September - the Rotaract Club of Saint Louis School of Medicine had its Induction. The Officers prepared a presentation for the new members who were encouraged to be of service to others while they are young and full of enthusiasm. It is interesting to note that as early as now, they have already a complete line up of officers for the incoming term. 16 September - Barangay Lucnab goat raisers spent an afternoon getting acquainted with their assigned goats. Dir Cora gave a more in-depth lecture on how to read body signs of the said animals. PP Bert and myself took advantage of inviting the RCC members to the RCC Seminar and how raising mushroom could change their lives. 19 September – The RCC/RVC District Training Seminar Areas 1 and 2 is hosted by our Club. The Committee headed by the ever dedicated PP Gerard, met at the Benguet State University, to finalize the preparations for 22 September. 21 September – Celebration of the International Peace Day at the Peace Flagpole, Post Office, Baguio City. This was hosted by the Rotary Club of Downtown Session. In attendance from our Club were Rtn. Mariver,Dir. Gigi, Rtn. Jen, PP Chris, PP Bert, Rtn. Lani, SAA Jun, Rtn. Cecille and spouse Larry, Rtn. Joey, PE Uwe and myself. Thank for your being there fellow Rotarians! 21 September – Last Day of the Feeding Program at Lindawan Elementary School. This day was more of a celebration as the pupils of our feeding program were given a treat of fried chicken, spaghetti, of course required vegetable tempura, ice cream, cake and a lot of goodies! The children are now healthier, happier and sporty as they gave their presentations for the Rotarians, parents and teachers. Thank you for the all out support from our Club. Special mention, of course, for our 100% cook, Sec. Baby, PP Veeh, the Rotary Ann and Rotakids, continued on page 3

In Retrospect

Last 22 September 2012, the Rotary Community Corps (RCC) District Training Seminar of Areas 1 and 2 was held at Benguet State University Gymnasium in the municipality of La Trinidad, Benguet. The Rotary Club of Baguio served as host. As we know, the RCC is a group of non-Rotarian men and women who share Rotary’s values and commitment to service. Such endeavor empowers community members to initiate and implement service projects and facilitate collaboration between Rotarians and non-Rotarians in their community development endeavors. The training seminar focused on Mushroom Tissue Culture. Such training seminar also included the cultivation, production and of course everyone’s favorite – the cooking of mushroom. The training seminar aimed to empower those present with the knowledge and skill of propagating commercially grown mushroom even in their own homes. Before 7:30 am, our registration committee was there to welcome our dignitaries, fellow Rotarians and guests. Everyone was busy, thrilled and excited at this juncture, as it is the first time that an RCC training seminar on such a scale and magnitude was conducted. Rtn. Gary Lo Ang, was the earliest bird at 6:30 am. During the course of the Registration, our RCB Rotarians were there to openly receive and gladly accommodate all our visitors. As always we were game to give a few pleasantries and exchange thoughts and ideas. At around 9:30 am, the assembly of delegates followed by the entrance of colors and processional ensued. SAA Jun Bondoc and Rtn. Lani Fabi were the Masters of Ceremony. The plenary session was opened and called to order by the dynamic and enthusiastic DG ANTONIO “Tony” BAUTISTA who was glad to see the number of participants and guests present. To set the tone, a song was rendered by our very own RCB Past Presidents PP Doming Valencia, PP Lito Pangilinan, PP Diony Claridad and PP Benny Sunga whose voices serenaded the crown. Then after, the District Theme Song “Let there be peace on earth” reverberated throughout the gymnasium and was gladly sang by everyone. DGE Linda “Linda” Winter then did the introduction of the Dignitaries and Guests at the head table. Those present were DG Tony Bautista with spouse Evelyn, PP Ben Ladilad, President Libby Fernandez, PP Nasser Pangilinan, PP Gerard Audineau and Dr. Bernard Tad-awan.

The Cañao Newsletter - Volume LXV No. 10 - 29 September 2012

The welcome remarks were given by Pres. Elizabeth “Libby” Fernandez who greeted all the guests Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike. President Libby expressed her sincere gratitude and appreciation to all the clubs present, its officers and members. She also equally gave attention to the warm welcome given by Benguet State University through its President PP Ben “Ben” Ladilad, to include all the speakers, facilitators and staff whose expertise and passion made this seminar possible. PP Nasser Pangilinan gave an overview on the RCC training seminar. PP Nasser in brief emphasized the need to promote sustainable solutions to community needs by engaging a broader segment of the community in developing and implementing focused community projects such as the one at hand.

Rtn. Naas Demyttenaere demonstrated a delicious meal featuring of course mushroom as the main ingredient.

An inspirational address was then given by DG Antonio “Tony”Bautista. DG Tony Bautista made a concise and relatively realistic expectation for the year. He emphasized on the need of partnerships between Rotarians and their communities in an effort to proactively address needs through sustainable methods of implementation like such training seminar. At around 10 am the Workshops were formally opened. PP Ben “Ben” Ladilad, President of Benguet State University then made an introduction of the resource speaker Dr. Bernard Tad-awan. Dr. Tad –awan is a pacesetter of BSU training staff who are technically adept in mushroom tissue culture and propagation.

Pres. Libby, PP Ben Ladilad and Spouse Cely, PP Gerard, PP Diony and PP Doming greeted DG Tony and Spouse Evelyn after they arrived.

Dr.Tad-awan gave a complete yet brief introduction of what the program is all about, the viability of such program, its commercial aspect and the production and the cultivation of mushroom itself. According to Dr. Tad-awan, there are various genus or types of mushrooms. From white button, potabello, shiitake, oyster, banana, Lingzhi ant taingang daga. But for this particular seminar, they focused on oyster mushroom since such is the most viable mushroom for production in our locality. At around 11:45am, lunch was then served and dance numbers were rendered to entertain guests and delegates.

Club Members of Rotary Club of Baguio at the registration table making sure the Seminar will go smoothly.

Workshop resumed at 1 pm Grouping was made and delegates were advised to proceed to their designated color areas. Group 1 or the red group focused on Fruiting Bag Production. The group was facilitated by IPP Florence “Flo” Bayquen. IPP Flo together with Professor Andres Basalong, Miss Jumarlyn Abad and Mr. Paterno Uyad Jr. made a hand’s on approach on the production of fruiting bags of oyster mushroom. Although a bit technical in nature, IPP Flo’s group were able to simplify the process of substrate preparation, sterilization, incubation and fruiting into a procedure which is comprehensible even to us who before this seminar only continued on page 7

Committee Updates: Youth

DRIA 2012 INSIGHTS Rtn. Lani Fabi

The New Generations Month in September was aptly celebrated by holding the District Rotaract Interact Assembly 2012 at Tarlac Events Place, Tarlac City last 15 September 2012. The New Generations: Young Advocates for Peace” theme gave the opportunity for our Rotaractors and Interactors to actively participate in various activities during the event to learn, understand and be motivated to become responsible partners of Rotary and at their young age be inspired to become good leaders and realize the value of “Service Above Self”. Our participants gave their insights on their experience at DRIA. “Young advocates for peace”- the theme of the District Rotaract-Interact Assembly, which struck me and challenged me to be an advocate for peace. As the new president of Rotaract Lucnab ,joining this event is something memorable to me not just because the place is new ,but I was given a chance to meet new faces and made new friends . I’ve also learned that to become a successful advocator for peace I must know how to listen, relate and understand others. Wow! a day to cherish meeting the different Rotaract Clubs of District 3790.” – Xena Sokkong, Pres., Rotaract Club of Barangay Lucnab “Preparing the youths to become successful, a quotation that caught my mind during the District Rotaract-Interact Assembly, it was a very good experience because as one of the youth leaders I was given a chance to interact with other leaders , to be more sociable in which I haven’t experienced when I was not a member of the Rotaract, I’ve learned to socialize with other people despite our cultural differences.” -- Joymae Felipe, Sec., Rotaract Club of Barangay Lucnab “Discipline is one attitude that is very important, especially to us youths of today. The District RotaractInteract Assembly was an enlightening experience. The key to have a successful life is to have discipline in yourself as well as being responsible with your own actions. As the saying goes, “He, who works the hardest, eventually becomes the best.” – Jonard Felipe Pres., Interact Club of Barangay. Lucnab


With District Rotaract Chairman PP Alex Laguisma

District Interact Chairman PP Ma. Agnes Ladia

“This is my second time to attend a big event, first was the RYLA 2011 in Pagudpud which I enjoyed very much and now the DRIA Event 2012. While I was shy the first time, now I am more confident and more outgoing and have improved myself to mingle with different Interactors of various clubs. With the activities that we experienced, I have learned to share my ideas and meet new friends. I had fun ! --Marie Grace Crosby, VP, Interact Club of Barangay Lucnab “During the DRIA event, I’ve learned a lot. First thing was gaining confidence. I was able to communicate with others, to be with others and especially to enjoy that day with others. That experience also gave us the inspiration to lead and how to lead.” -- Noemy Felipe, Sec., Interact Club of Barangay Lucnab “DRIA is not only an ordinary event wherein different Interact Clubs will meet. This is also the way for us Interactors to meet other Rotaractors and Interactors from other places. In this said event, we engaged ourselves in different activities especially in team building. Through this kind of activities, not only the leadership skill of an individual had been enhanced but also the confidence of a person to interact with each other.” -- Kent Lasdacan, CP, Interact Club of Baguio Patriotic High School “I have learned many things that aren’t learned inside our school. The activities of this club brought me a lot of views about leadership, service, and fun. This DRIA of 2012 also gave me new friends from the outside. Because of these great experiences, I’ll continue and learn more. “ continued on page 7

RCC continued from 5 knew how to eat mushroom. Group 2 or the Blue group focused on Mushroom Growing. The group was facilitated by PE Uwe “Uwe”Koeller. Dr. Janet S. Luis and Dr. Bernard Tad-awan in detail discussed the process. During this time, we were made to understand that there are a number of variations of mushrooms necessary to suit the climate and environment of the locality where the mushroom are to be cultivated. It is here that we learned that even the production of mushroom also need TLC or tender loving care.

CIRCULAR 13, S-2012 DATE: September 26, 2012 FROM: PP NASSER PANGILINAN District RCC Chair SUBJECT: A WORD OF APPRECIATION TO: All Rotarians of Areas 1 & 2 On behalf of the District leadership, I express my sincerest appreciation to the following for the incredible success of the RCC Seminar on September 22, 2012 held at La Trinidad, Benguet: 1. Rotarians and RCC members in attendance

Group 3 which seems to be the hands down favorite group, focused on the Cooking of mushroom. The group was facilitated by Rtn. Ignass “Naas” Demyttenaere and was assisted by Dr. Aurora Pinon, Dr. Ben Luis, Miss Catherine Bagsan.

2. Benguet State University - for the generosity and use of its facilities

At first, I honestly cannot believe that mushroom can be cooked in so many different ways. To name a few: Mushroom with ampalaya, beef with mushroom, chopseuy with mushroom, sinigang with mushroom, noodles with mushroom, mushroom patties, mushroom salad, baked mushroom and the list goes on. Wow amazing! As a matter of fact, I went in line to have a taste at the dish prepared by Rtn. Naas and Rtn.Baby. Word was the dishes were quite mouthwatering. True indeed, even before my turn was due, the mushroom dishes prepared by our fellow

Again, thank you ever so much.

DRIA Insights continued from 6 – Jimler Chow, Sec., Interact Club of Baguio Patriotic High School “Being able to attend the DRIA and learn more about Interact wasn’t just an honoring experience but a truly enjoyable one. I’m grateful to have found the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone to meet, mingle and get along with new friends. Now, I’m looking forward to sharing the experience with my co-Interactors and apply what we have learned from the event. Truly, it was one unforgettable experience” -- Cyprene Keith Sibelius , CP Interact Club of Saint Louis Pacdal “Attending the DRIA is a wonderful experience. In this event, I learned many things about Interact and I met new friends from different Interact Clubs of District 3790. Even if it was the first-time that me and my co-officers in our club joined in this kind of assembly, we have enjoyed it, we are very thankful and happy that they have given us the chance to attend this great event. I hope that we will again experience this kind of enjoyment in the coming activities of the Interact Club.” -- Antonio Anniban Jr., VP, Interact Club of Saint Louis Pacdal

3. Rotary Club of Baguio - for a well prepared and coordinated work ... an exceptional example for other clubs to emulate.

Rotarians were long gone and vanished without a trace. At around 4 in the afternoon, an open forum was conducted to allow the participants to have a complete understanding of the process. Rtn. Leilani “Lani” Fabi presided and the guest speakers were more than able to answer the questions of our guests. Tokens of appreciation were given by President Elizabeth “Libby” Fernandez to PP Ben Ladilad, PP Gerard Audineau and all the BSU Training Staff speaking in the seminar. PP Gerard “Gerard” Audineau also recognized the valuable contribution of fellow Rotarians who were members of the committees. Raffle was conducted by PP Mike Pearson and Dir Chris Faelnar who as always were game in entertaining guests both Rotarians and Non Rotarians. Adjourment was done by PP Nasser Pangilinan in a short and simple fashion. In addendum, the just recently conducted RCC seminar can be compared to a mushroom. It takes time to prepare and it takes patience and tender loving care. But in the end it’s an achievement worthy to share. Hopefully, we can have a second serving of Rtn. Naas and Rtn. Baby’s mushroom dish. Bon apetit!

“We were very privileged to attend the DRIA at Tarlac. I’m very glad because I met new friends and the activity was definitely fun and enjoyable. I felt comfortable because of the warm accommodation at the said event.” -- Froilan Kim Padua, Sec. - Interact Club of Saint Louis Pacdal
