Pres. Libby Fernandez Club President Rotary Club of Baguio RY 2012-13

S

eventy-five years ago, a number of noble gentlemen, from the Rotary Club of Manila, with the aim of rendering service and making Rotary grow, trekked through the high mountains and came to a beautiful and serene place, called Baguio. Since then, the seed of the Rotary Club planted, grew, bore fruit and crept through valleys, rivers, rocks spreading the principle of “service above self� into the hearts of men. Now at 75, the Rotary Club of Baguio, is a vibrant, involved, committed and working Club. Credit is given to the many men and women, who extended themselves, heart and soul, to the cause of Rotary. We say our profuse thanks too, to the many groups and entities, who, believed and driven by common goal, devotedly partnered with the Club. Through the 75 years of labor, fellowship and industry, they were there! Today as we celebrate, we honor those who, before us, held high the sense of commitment and responsibility. We say our appreciation to our forefathers in Rotary who, through their word and deed, kept the high esteemed character and respectability that the Rotary Club of Baguio is. We celebrate with a promise, the torch of Rotary Club of Baguio, we will forever hold high! Happy Anniversary to all!

ear Fellow Celebrants and Friends,

The RCB Diamond Jubilee Celebration (DJC) to commemorate our seventyfifth founding year, could be the biggest and most important activity the RCBMother Club will ever undertake. In my mind, its prominence can be eclipsed only by district activities that RCB undertakes and possibly our 100th year anniversary celebration. It took me less than a day to give an affirmative answer to Pres. Libby’s query if I would accept the challenge as jubilee chairman. Thereafter, for over a month, I was tormented with personal remorse, on why I became foolish enough to say yes to such a gargantuan task.

PP Raffy Chan Diamond Jubilee Celebration Overall Chairman

Later I learned that I was not the first choice for the chairmanship, early candidates having refused the task. Upon learning who the early nominees were, I became even more agitated with the challenge. But it likewise reinforced my thinking that the chairmanship needed more than just one person. It required the dynamism of three dedicated Rotarians from our club. I thank PP Veeh Balajo and PP Doming Valencia for taking up the challenge with me. Having effectively worked with both on a number of important RCB assignments, I became totally up to the task with both by my side. At my instance, we have christened ourselves as the RCB Trilogy. Today, more than five months after the DJC launching last 08 Sep 2012, we joyfully look back at the effectiveness of the Trilogy strategy. In a voluntary organization such as ours, three past presidents have proven to be a supereffective formula of drumming-up action. Our RCB general membership has been equally up to the tasks at hand. In behalf of your RCB Trilogy, we thank our RCB members, particularly the chairperson and co-chair of all the DJC committees, in responding to our call to action in our joint commitment in doing our share for the club. We have reunited ourselves in the spirit of oneness for RCB, reconciling with the thought that RCB is more than its individual members and personalities. It is the UNITY that we share as a Rotary Family! Cordially in behalf of the RCB Trilogy, PP Raffy Chan DJC Overall Chairman

ear fellow Rotarians,

Rotary has been part of my life for many years. I became a Rotarian almost by accident. I did not know anything about Rotary when I was invited to join. But I respected the person who invited me, so I accepted. Now, I see Service Above Self as a way of life. It means that no individual can live by himself, alone. We are always in a community. At home, at school, at work, and in our countries—we share our lives with others. It is human and natural to want to share our lives. Whether we are happy or sad, facing success or difficulty, we want to know that we have others close by. And as much as we want other people to be there for us, we each have a need to be there for others. When we serve our communities—when we go to teach someone a skill, to help paint a house, to participate in an NID—we become more fully involved in our communities. We build connections with others; we give of ourselves. And in doing this, we work toward our real goal: a world of greater happiness, greater contentment, and greater peace. I wish you all the best in your Rotary service, and I look forward to a year of building Peace through Service together.

N BEHALF of our city and people, and on my own, I take pride in congratulating and felicitating the Officers and Members of the Rotary Club of Baguio on the proud occasion of its 75th Charter Anniversary taking place on February 23, 2013. This is indeed an occasion worth celebrating, a time to remember its humble origins, to energize present-day endeavors, and to chart the course for possibly the next seventy five years of your storied civic life.

Bernardo Vergara Representative Lone District of Baguio City Republic of the Philippines House of Representative

I know well enough that Rotary has been very much a living part of Baguio’s history. We recall your club’s modest beginnings, which ushered in the birth of Rotary in Baguio at the Venerated old Pines Hotel in 1938, purposely to inculcate Service Above Self in our own community. From that club, Rotary was born in other parts of our city and elsewhere in the country. As Baguio grew to what it is now, so has your illustrious club, so has Rotary developed into the pillar of community service that it has become Worldwide. Indeed, what our city is today is as much a result of the civic helpfulness that Rotary, through its Rotarians and Rotary Anns, has endeavored in the highest sense of civic service. Times have certainly changed, but the core-values that have moulded your entire membership, past and present, have remained essentially the same, Whatever the time and circumstance, As Baguio moves on into the threshold of opportunities, Rotary role will even be more needed to sustain growth and development in the coming years. Rotary has made possible the emergence of responsible citizenship in our midst, helping us address major concerns of healthcare, education, social services, and good governance. The Rotary Club of Baguio will be among the first to spearhead the frontlines of service, “hearing the voice of the inadequate, feeling the pain of the dispossessed, knowing the depth of the disadvantaged.” With you in shared togetherness, we can strive further in harnessing each other’s resources towards meaningful change, the kind of change that we need to make Baguio a renewed urban center of education, tourism, trade and business which is keyed on the anvil of responsible leadership. As your Congressman, I value the privilege bestowed by our constituents to serve our city and people with the same level of concern with which civic citizens like you have manifested in resounding terms all throughout Baguio’s crucial growth years. Rotary will always be a beckoning light that will continue to illuminate the pathways ahead. Again, do accept my sincere commendation and Godspeed as you remember your glorious years in sacred consecration to serve others. Mabuhay ang Rotary Club of Baguio for turning 75 and keeping alive the faith of selfless service!

ROTARY CLUB OF BAGUIO,

A SPARKLING DIAMOND By: PP Vicenia “Veeh” Balajo

Seven and a half decades, encompassing two to three generations of human existence, seem ages away. But, for the past 75 years, the ROTARY CLUB OF BAGUIO (RCB) has withstood the test of time, has grown strong and undaunted, focused on its goals and aspirations, and has remained to be an integral part of the community and the district which it serves, as well as of whole Rotary world. For an organization like RCB to last this long, it must have done something worthwhile. This we give credit to the members, past and present, who have played vital roles in its rich and colorful history, who have contributed significantly in molding RCB into what it is now. With respectable members through the years, it has engaged in projects and activities which are relevant to the respective times (pre- and postwar era, baby-boomer years, age of Aquarius, times of plenty and thrift, onwards to the millennium, with the rapid progress in technology). RCB has been noted to be a stickler to tradition, yet it is responsive to the changes needed, in harmony with those of the Rotary International, with the admission of new enthusiastic

and energetic members who inject rejuvenating “enzymes” to the club. Thus, RCB remains RADIANT as a DIAMOND, then in 1938, till now on its 75th year of existence. To quote PP Teopisto “Teop” Rondez (whose article in the RCB 60th Charter Anniversary Souvenir Program became a major source of this ‘Milestones’), “Baguio Rotary’s course had at one time or another been lively, tumultuous, enjoyable, tense, shaky and smooth running…” Thus, on this occasion, it is but befitting to look back and find inspiration from events of yesteryears that have sculpted RCB to its present status, a SPARKLING DIAMOND. Among the significant events worth remembering are the following milestones: THE GENESIS Nov. 27, 1937 – Organizational meeting was held, led by our mother club, RC Manila, at the then newly inaugurated social hall of the Pines Hotel. The delegation of Manila Rotarians was headed by RC Manila President, Justice George Malcolm. Feb. 21, 1938 – 3 months after organizational meeting, 33 years after the birth of Rotary, R. I. approved the

Even as the World War II broke out, then President, Dr. Fernando “Nanding” Manalo, & other Filipino Rotarians managed to “raise money and, at great risk to their lives and those of their families, gave aid to Americans who were concentrated at Camp Holmes.” July 13, 1946. After the devastating World War II, Dr. Nanding Manalo took to himself the difficult challenging task of reorganizing the Rotary Club of Baguio. Thus Rotary International presented back the charter to RC Baguio on this day, with Dr. Fernando “Nanding” Manalo reelected as its President, “the only club president to have been honored in that high regard.” ▲ The Four-Way-Test concrete marker at the corner of Gov.

Sabino “Ben” Macaltao – RY 1978 – 1979); cultural concert featuring Russian Violinist Vladimir Spivakov (Pres. Lawrence “Larry” Martin – RY 1981 – 1982); participation in Alay Lakad project of DSSD (Pres. Marcos “Ben” Cid- RY 1982 – 1983); socio-civic activities and seminars for Baguio’s youth. RCB hosted the 1981 District Assembly and co-hosted with RC Pasig South the joint 379 & 380 District Conference in 1985. PP Carlos “Carling” Santiago became the third RCB Past President who was elected as District Governor in RY 1984 –1985. The decade culminated in the celebration of the Golden Jubilee in 1988, with the holding of various commemorative programs, Thanksgiving Dinner and Fellowship Night under the leadership of then Pres. Josefino “Noli” Balatero. SIXTH DECADE (1988 – 1998) The many disasters that struck Luzon, notably the killer quake in 1990 and the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in 1991, plus the many super typhoons that affected our district, were considered opportunities for our RCB members to render “Service Above Self” not only in Baguio but also in the District, with greater involvement in community service activities. The club initiated several reconstructive and rehabilitative programs in the city, conducted medical-surgicaldental-legal missions several times per year, tree planting activities once or twice a year in our adopted Busol watershed and in selected areas, Polio Plus and 3-H programs, construction

of a health center in Asin, cleaning and beautification of our adopted park around the Rotary pylon, adoption of the Baguio Police Market Task Force, sponsoring of cultural concerts and fund-raising activities like the Annual RCB-sponsored Golf Tournament from 1997 to date. Two years after the Rotary International (RI) allowed admission of women in Rotary, RCB inducted its first Lady Rotarian in 1991 in the person of Ms. Lorna Gomia. Likewise, in its 60th year of existence, RCB elected its first Lady President, Dr. Vicenia Balajo. RCB hosted the 1989 District Assembly, 1996 and 1997 PESETS, the latter being held on board the Super Ferry 12, the first and only one of its kind held in RI D-3790. The RCB chorale was born in 1993, which served as an avenue of fellowship for RCB members and Rotary Anns, and which helped the club in a major way by producing, to date, 16 Paul Harris Fellows (PHF) with corresponding 11 recipients and 2 The Rotary Foundation Sustaining Members (TRF SM) from the

proceeds of the annual caroling by the chorale. Worthwhile mentioning is the fact that since RY 2007 – 2008, the annual caroling proceeds were restricted specifically for the Polio Plus Program of the TRF. It was in RY 1992-1993 that RCB received for the first time the RI Presidential Citation for wellbalanced program on all the Rotary avenues of service during the incumbency of then Pres. Cyrus “Cy” Fagar. Since then, RCB has been receiving such award almost every year, till the present time. SEVENTH DECADE (1998 – 2008) The seventh decade of RCB’s existence is marked with the continuation and innovation of the projects and activities in each avenue of service (Club, Vocational, Community, International, New Generations), now concentrated on our adopted barangays, communities, schools and parks. Major accomplishments are funded from our approved Matching Grant projects, co-sponsored with our foreign and local partner-Rotary clubs as well as non-Rotary partners in service –

Rotary club of Baguio Motto

RCB Club Motto Instituted in 2007

Respice, adspice, prospice In Latin literally means: Examine the past, examine the present, examine the future. Also means: look to the past, the present, and the future. We are the members of the Rotary Club of Baguio (RCB), the Mother Club of the District, proud of the traditions passed on to us by our Rotary forebears, which have been preserved from our rich and glorious PAST. To this day, these traditions have been continued and, when appropriate, transformed as they would best function in our PRESENT Commitment to Serve. We likewise proudly and continually look forward to the FUTURE, carefully steering ourselves toward where we could best serve our community, our country, our world. As a group of committed leaders, we never forget to meld into our Commitment to Serve: the lessons of the PAST, the wisdom of the PRESENT and our dynamism towards the FUTURE.

Rotary Hymn I want to be a Rotarian for the world, Make the Rotary flag be a flag of peace unfurled; I will serve my community, Help to seek international unity. Through Rotary, I will dedicate my all, World understanding shall be my cherished goal. Refrain I: With the Four Way Test I will pursue my quest And if I, in a way help obtain Peace in the world Then I won’t have lived in vain. I’ll observe service above self, Lend a hand to all who need my help; I’ll get my spouse to involve in Rotary And in Rotary ways I will train my family. Refrain II: With the Four Way Test We’ll pursue our quest And if we, in a way help obtain Peace in the world Then we won’t have lived in vain. Build a bridge for tomorrow’s youth, Strengthened by nothing but the truth; Let’s join our hands, there’s no reason to divide. We shall all understand, while the good Lord is our guide. Repeat Refrain II Peace be achieved, So we won’t have lived in vain.

Object of Rotary The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster: FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society; THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life; FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowhip of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

Four-Way Test of Rotary Of all the things we think, say or do:

1 Is it the TRUTH? 2 Is it FAIR to all concerned? 3 Will it build GOODWILL and

BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

4 Will it be BENEFICIAL to all

concerned?

CONGRATULATIONS AND MABUHAY ! Happy 75TH Diamond Jubilee Year Charter Anniversary!

We feel blessed and honoured to be part of an awesome club whose thrust to engage in worthwhile endeavours have inspired us to continue with our unrelenting support and generosity to realize what we intend to achieve for Rotary. Fellow Rotarians let us live up to the expectations of a true Rotarian, live by The Four Way Test and be guided with the motto “Service Above Self”. Let us be inspired by our past achievements and in a concerted effort look forward to do more good things for our club, the people we help and the communities we serve. Rotarians come and go but the legacy left behind will forever be etched in the lives of the people we touch. As what Albert Einstein has said “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile”. Rtn.

RCB Hymn

The Rotary Club of Baguio Hymn (The Force of Goodwill)

Composed by Dennis P. Flores, M.D.

We have been summoned by God’s loving call To follow a great, self-less road To serve, heart and mind, every trial, stand tall Unburden a man’s heavy load… Trained to examine the gifts of the past Consider the present we bear To aim for the best of the future we must Broaden our minds as we care… Chorus: We are the force built on Goodwill and Service Love friend or foe, we embrace this demand Called to be brave through life’s burning furnace Rotary Club of Baguio, we stand The Truth, all actions must certainly yield To all of our mankind, be fair For Goodwill and Friendships we constantly build Forever God’s Goodness we share… (Repeat Chorus twice)
