Honoring Our Vocational Treasures
Speech delivered by Gov. Francis A. Rivera during the 2013 Rotary Golden Wheel Awards Night, 26 October at the Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria
he Golden Wheel Awards reminds us of Rotary’s essence as a service organization. Simply stated, Rotary is an association of business and professional men and women committed to the promotion of friendship, goodwill and peace in the world through service to others. How this commitment is pursued and fulfilled leads us to Rotary’s unique world of service, which is made up of five wonderful ways to serve beyond the self. These are: Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, International Service, and Service to New Generations. Each one of these indicates the focus of the kind of service through which Rotary serves mankind. But of these five avenues, it is Vocational Service that Rotarians love to call the “Soul of Rotary.” And the reason is simple: membership in Rotary is governed by its classification principle, which provides that every member must belong to a particular business or profession, or vocation. It is this kind of exclusive membership that has opened the hearts of Rotarians to serve in many ways relative to man’s vocation. Rotary’s Golden Wheel Awards provides one of the most beautiful ways Rotarians serve in the avenue of Vocational Service. Here we give special recognition to the outstanding men and women in their respective businesses and professions. And we give this special recognition to celebrate October as Rotary’s Vocational Service Month. Tonight as we give honor and recognition to the few who will receive the award, I am reminded of the US Medal of Freedom given to the late Congressman Claude Pepper. As the book, Our Daily Bread” puts it:
The distinguished congressman was called by his colleagues “a national treasure.” He was a valiant champion of the elderly and the poor. A few days before Pepper’s death in 1989, President Bush visited him in Walter Reed Hospital to give him the nation’s highest civilian award, the Medal of Freedom. Representative Silvio Conte recalls, “Despite what was obviously great deal of pain, Claude apologized to the President and the First Lady that he couldn’t stand up,” said Conte. “He didn’t have to stand up. He was a giant.” To us Rotarians, these men and women stand as giants in the world of business and professions. They are our “Vocational Treasures,” the very few whom we have chosen from a long list of individuals who were picked by our Rotary clubs from different fields of endeavor. Every story about their life in their line of business or profession has been given our wisdom of choice. They epitomize the meaning of excellence painted in the words of John Ruskin, “When men are rightly occupied, their amusement grows out of their work, as the color petals out of a fruitful flower.” And then he adds, “When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.” Let us therefore give the honor and praise to those that will receive this year’s Golden Wheel Awards. They are the outstanding men and women whose shining example of excellence and practice of high ethical standards in the world of business and professions will bring positive change to our communities and our world.

New Rotarians are warmly welcomed during District membership recognition event
By District Membership Development Chair Lt. Gov. Dwight M. Ramos, RC Quezon City
he District saw another membership event kick off this month, continuing a tradition that is now entrenched in the lives of Quezon City Rotarians. Every year, the District, through a grand fellowship event for new members gives them honor and recognition for joining the great Clubs of RI District 3780 during the Rotary Year. It is also a way of thanking the Club leaders, most specially the First Class Presidents, for leading the charge in meeting the District Membership Recruitment and Retention goals this year. Begun three years ago by now District Governor Nominee Reynaldo "Rey" David, this year's event was hosted by the Rotary Club of Quezon City (RCQC) and chaired by District Membership Development Committee Chairman Dwight "Dwight" M. Ramos. The District Membership Recognition event started at 4:00 pm, with the Rotary Basics Seminar for new members. The speakers included IPDG Rufino "Penny" Policarpio and IPDS Pastor "Mar" Reyes. District Trainer PDG Danilo "Dan" Espinosa first gave an overview of the seminar to the participants before DG Francisco "Francis" Rivera gave his keynote address. DG Francis talked about how fellowship has always been the source of life in getting Rotarians to work together in bringing Rotary service to communities around the world. This is the reason why according to him Rotary has lived for more than 108 years since its birth in 1905. Without fellowship or friendship, Rotary would have lost the foundation of its creation. He also said that in gathering for the District Membership Grand Fellowship Night, the words of Paul Harris and Rotary's 108-year history built upon service and fellow-
ship should come flashing in our minds, as these are the beautiful reasons that Rotarians have come together for this auspicious event. Fellowship provides the greatest opportunity for Rotarians to get to know each other well and build warm and lasting friendships. Friendship inflames the heart with passion to serve others. When friends come together, service acquires more meaning and gives more joy and inner fulfillment. He also cited Francis Bacon who said, "Friendship doubles joy and halves grief.” Finally, he wished that the grand fellowship will strengthen the fibers of friendship that hold Quezon City Rotarians together. He said to take time to meet everyone and make the event a great opportunity to expand the circle of friendship, strengthen the foundations of the Rotary movement in our part of the world. After all, it is through friends that we enrich our lives with joy and it is through fellowship that we can lend more meaning to the theme, "Engage Rotary Change Lives." The event took place at the Quezon Ballroom of the Quezon City Sports Club and was also highlighted by a showcase of talents from the ranks of the First Class Presidents (FCP), who sang tribute songs to the new members, as well as the drawing of many raffle prizes that were donated by RCQC members. FCP Cesar "Poch" Jaymalin and FCP Jocelyn "Josie" Garcia were emcees for the night.

It is not a political organization and its members are expected to be cooperative, self-sufficient and develop human potential to its fullest. Rotarians will simply oversee the RCC and may assist them in their projects. District RCC Chair Bong Cruz then showed a step-bystep approach to organizing an RCC which he defined as a “force multiplier” of a Rotary Club when they collaborate in community development endeavours. This was followed by a workshop where the participants accomplished the RCC Organization Form which is submitted to RI without any required dues. The RCC is expected to submit a report on their projects annually. Those who fail to report for 3 consecutive years are automatically dropped from the roster. In closing, District Community Service Chair Baby Allado enjoined the participants to organize an RCC soonest. She reiterated the statistics shown by the two main speakers of the seminar that there are over 7,500 active RCCs worldwide sponsored by 2,600 Rotary Clubs in 80 countries.

Lutong Rotarian challenges culinary skills as it builds fellowship & public image
by District Vocational Training Chair PP Jose “Joemon” Montenegro, RC Pag-asa and Rtr Kat Montenegro
ast October 15, 2013, the RI District 3780 2ndLutong Rotarian was held at the Fairview Branch of Gateways Institute of Science and Technology, a technical-vocational school founded by AG Joemon Montenegro, chairman for the District Vocational Training Sub-Committee. The Lutong Rotarian is a project of the District Vocational Service Committee which is chaired by PP Edgardo “Ed” Ayento. The main host of the event was RC Pag-asa QC with 18 co-host clubs. Before the actual competition, professional chefs talked about the methods of cooking, the types of kitchen equipment and their usage, food safety and sanitation, and meal preparation. Because of the useful information presented, it also served as a seminar of both the Rotarian participants and non-participants and the Hotel and Restaurant Services students of GIST. After the participants have been aptly prepared through the seminar, they proceeded to the cooking challenge, which consisted of two parts. Their first challenge was to cook an “Heirloom Recipe,” which
meant that they had to create a meal from a recipe that has been handed down through the generations of their family. Time limit was ninety minutes. The second challenge was to cook another main dish, but this time all the participants were required to choose from given ingredients in a “market basket,” and afterward, they had to open the “mystery basket” with a secret ingredient. The participants were judged based on the following criteria: Taste - 50% Techniques -15% Texture -15% Sanitation -10% Presentation -10% The winners were: Rtn. Marites F. Guiam of RC Diliman North, 2nd Runner Up; Rtn Jose G. Umali of RC Loyola Heights; and the Champion, Rtn. Milagros U. Abu Hussein of RC Quezon City Central. While one of the main purposes of the Lutong Rotarian was to enhance and showcase the participants’ culinary skills, it is also an enjoyable means of fellowship among the
participants and members of the Rotary clubs that were present. And it seems that even Governor Francis Rivera himself, who graced the occasion, recognized the potential for Lutong Rotarian to be a continuing project. He even suggested that all governors should be participants, as he himself was willing and eager to take part in the challenge. PP Ed Ayento also added that this was a worthwhile project that may also boost the public image of Rotary. AG Joemon, who has been the organizer of the Lutong Rotarian for the past two years, hopes that future leaders of District 3780 will continue this worthwhile project, which he believes is beneficial not only to participants but also to everyone who would be watching and participating in the seminars conducted by professional chefs. He invites all Rotarians to keep on supporting and ensuring the success of the Lutong Rotarian for years to come.

COPS 2013: The “good eggs in the police basket” are recognized for excellence
By Senior Deputy District Secretary Roberto “Bong” Cruz, RC New Manila East
hey came from all corners of the archipelago, with ranks varying from SPO1 to Superintendent, but they all have one thing in common. They all used the community as an effective tool for accomplishing their job of crime prevention and more importantly, crime solution. And yes, they are all winners of the 2013 nationwide search for the Country’s Outstanding Police Officers in Service (COPS). This annual and nationwide search is a partnership among the Metrobank Foundation, the Philippine Savings Bank, the Philippine National Police, and the Rotary Club of New Manila East. “Annually, four commissioned officers and six noncommissioned officers are chosen among nominees from the PNP’s 17 regions. This year, there were more than 150 policemen-nominees, the highest ever in the history of the search”, says RCNME First Class President Fausto “Osty” Manlapaz. The final Board of Judges which selected this year’s outstanding COPS was co-chaired by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Chairman Francisco Duque II of the Civil Service Commission. Congressman Niel Tupas, Jr. of the 5th District of Iloilo served as Vice Chairman with Bataan Provincial Governor Albert Garcia, Philippine Daily Inquirer President Alexandra Prieto-Romualdez, Lina Group of Companies Chairman Alberto Lina and SGV Foundation Chairman and President Cirilo Noel as members. The COPS awardees were feted together with the winners of the Search for the Outstanding Teachers (SOT) and The Outstanding Philippine Soldiers (TOPS) in ceremonies honoring them collectively as Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos last September 5, 2013, as one of the highlights of the Metrobank’s anniversary celebration. Each winner received a cash price of P300,000 and specially-designed trophy and medal from the Metrobank Foundation. Recognizing Excellence in Public Service Pres. Manlapaz emphasizes that the search for COPS recognizes the shared responsibility between the police officers and the community. “The COPS Award seeks to identify gallant men and women in the police force who
are able to work with the community to prevent and solve crime. This award is not for the police officers who shoot it out with the bad guys. This is for the police officers who use the community who tell them who the bad guys are”, he adds. History of the Competition The program started in 1988 as a brainchild of DGE
Sammy Pagdilao, himself a multi-awarded police officer, when the Rotary Club of New Manila East established the Best Community Oriented Policemen (Best COP) Award. This was in recognition of the important role of the vocational and community service component of police work in the pursuit of peace and order. Starting as an award for police officers in Metro Manila, the competition was expanded nationwide, garnering the support of the PNP and the Metrobank Foundation, which has been having its own police recognition program since 1999. Awards and recognitions for COPS Awards The COPS Awards has won numerous local and international awards. After consistently winning for several years the District award for the Most Outstanding Vocational Club Service Project, it was finally enshrined in the District Hall of Fame in that category. Rotary International recognized it in the field of Public Relations. It has also received Anvil Awards from the PR Society of the Philippines, Quill Awards from the International Association of Business Communicators and various commendations from the Philippine National Police.

Camp Aguinaldo celebrates vocational service month by honoring SPED teachers
By FC President Robert Camba, RC Camp Aguinaldo
s second parents to millions of children across the country and a source of guidance for them well into adulthood, our teachers play a central role in shaping the Filipino people. Teaching is long term and exhausting work that shapes the spirit of students. Special education teachers, in particular, need to contribute love and dedicated effort in nurturing their students with special educational needs. To recognize our SPED educators and institutions providing the best educational services to children with special learning needs, the Rotary Club of Camp Aguinaldo, together with other co-host clubs and in cooperation with the Department of Education and the AFP, held a
three hour workshop where they were taught "relaxation and meditation techniques" in the morning of the same day from 8 to 11 am at the CRS Hall in Camp Aguinaldo. After lunch they were brought to the P. Bernardo Elementary School for the Recognition portion of the activity. The program gave emphasis to the challenges facing the SPED teaching profession. It was dedicated to teachers of a different breed, our unsung heroes who toil everyday to make this world a better place to live. Since they give color to the world of children with special needs., it was only fitting and proper that we recognize their effort in a special way by making them feel special, even if just for a day. Highlights of the event was the Creative Silence portion whereby deaf students rendered the invocation and the National Anthem in deaf and sign language, and the Tinikling dance by blind students,
program entitled "Saludo ako sa Titser ko" on October 16, 2013 at 1pm at the P. Bernardo Elementary School. The aim was to give recognition to our SPED educators and the SPED centers in Quezon City. A 'Caring Conversation" workshop preceded the activity whereby 50 teachers from these centers were hosted to a
Co host clubs which supported the tribute to SPED teachers were RC Acropolis, RC Camp Crame, RC Congressional, RC Cubao Central, RC Cubao West, RC Holy Spirit, RC Kamuning, RC Kamuning Central, RC Metro SFDM, RC Pagasa, RC Quezon City, RC Quezon City Central, RC Paraiso, RC Roxas, RC SFDM, RC Timog and RC West Triangle.

We love, we care in our own small ways.”
Volunteer doctors and partners of Biak na Bato continue to make more people smile
By FC President Jolan Salino, RC Biak na Bato
otary Club of Biak-Na-Bato's “Libreng Pustiso” (Free Dentures) mission was held at Our Lady of Fatima University, Valenzuela City last October 13, 2013. One hundred twenty (120) street sweepers of the Metro Manila Development Authority were beneficiaries of the project on that day. The club’s "Libreng Pustiso" program has been a long-term commitment, addressing aggressively a felt need among the urban poor who are invariably saddled with financial burdens
and consequently their health concerns are often grossly neglected. To see them smiling with confidence is already a just reward and enough reason for us to continue and sustain this humanitarian community service. After twenty six years of dedicated dental outreach missions, the club was finally recognized for such an endeavor with the PLATINUM AWARD, the only recipient in District 3780 last May 25, 2013. Thanks to our major donor, our fellow Biakero Past President Freddie Ceballos.
Philam provides meals to, trims hair of, reads to and distribute gifts among students
By FC President Dennis Arca, RC Philam QC
he Rotary Club of Philam in partnership with the Crux Tau Ansata Fraternity/Sorority held an outreach project last October 17, 2013 at the North Fairview High School in Quezon City. The school is located in an area which is one of the most adversely affected by typhoons. Over 200 students from 1st to 2nd year level benefited from the project. The program opened with a message from the school principal, Miss Sheridan Evangelista. This was followed by a short inspirational talk of CP Dennis Arca who also announced the good news that the club, through one of its members, will sponsor 1 deserving graduate from North Fairview High School and another 1 from San Fransisco High School. The college scholarship includes tuition and monthly allowance. The feeding program immediately followed, with 20 candidates of Miss MP Advertising 3 helping in the distribution of tinola and rice to the students. Simultane-
ously, some students were given free haircut through the Gupit Linis project of the Club. Miss MP Candidates conducted a reading session which drew positive response from the students. Members of the Club came in full force in ensuring the success of the project with Secretary Kearney Si donating more than 20 dozens of socks to the student attendees. It was indeed a very tiring but satisfying day. New member IPP Jack Wong is looking at donating more books and some office items for the school.
Diliman North continues to promote breastfeeding to grow more healthy, cute babies
By FC President Marilene Araneta, RC Diliman North
n September 16, 2013, RC Diliman North held a competition called “Culiat’s Healthiest Breastfed Baby”, in partnership with the Culiat Health Center in Tandang Sora, Quezon City, and as part of its continued promotion of the importance of breastfeeding. The contest was open to infants 1-6 months of age who were fed purely breast milk, i.e., no supplementary food given. Out of 40 participants (mother-child teams), six (6) winners were declared, one from each age group. Judging was based on the following: height, weight, responsiveness and “cute factor” for the babies. Additional points were garnered by the baby whose mother went for pre-natal check-up visits at the health center. The panel of judges was headed by District Community Service Dr Ma Elisa “Baby” Allado who, together with volunteer teachers and mothers, spent more than four (4) hours at the Culiat Health Center to judge the winners. RCDN began promoting the importance of breastfeeding in 2011 through a lecture called, “Babies’ Best Nutritious Food is Free” before expectant mothers in Barangay Pasong Tamo Mrs Ines Fernandez, a WHO consultant and Executive Director of Arugaan Day Care, was keynote speaker. Breastfeeding does not incur costs; it is therefore a free source of food for babies. In 2012, the Club conducted a Maternal and Infant Care Program for the Aeta community in Mabala-
cat, Pampanga, focusing on the health of mothers who breastfeed their babies. For the current year, RCDN is promoting breastfeeding as part of environment protection. Dr Marianne Neifert of “Dr Mom’s Guide to Breastfeeding” presents strong arguments on how breastfeeding is environment-friendly. She wrote: “human milk uses no natural resources and generates no industrial waste. On the other hand, the production of formula, cans, bottles, nipples, labels, packaging and advertising uses trees, metals, glass, plastics, paper and fuel. Artificial feeding of infants creates an enormous volume of waste materials. In hospital nurseries, formula-fed babies are offered a singleuse glass or plastic bottle up to eight times a day.” Truly, this is an environment issue which breastfeeding can significantly address.

Cubao West rolls out “wheels” to provide mobility to 280 indigent beneficiaries
By FC President Josie M. Garcia, RC Cubao West
n September 4th, 280 wheelchairs arrived at the Novaliches Warehouse of PP Joel Guillermo of RC Cubao West. Since Matching Grant No. 77750 was approved more than a year ago, this “gift of mobility” finally arrived in Quezon City after much preparation and perseverance of the Club. The local wheelchair team was anxious at first because the US Wheelchair team had already arrived but the wheelchairs were still being cleared at our Custom’s Office. Eventually, the wheelchairs made it safely and were immediately
buffet meals in various restaurants. Members of the Club eagerly conducted the visitors around places of interest like the QC Memorial Circle, UP Diliman and Ateneo campuses, and even brought them to a comedy bar where they were recognized as Rotarians. RC Cubao West showcased some of its projects including the 200meter Batasan Wall Mural painting, medical missions, relief operations, feeding programs, and Club Induction. This great experience of the visiting team has been
scheduled for distribution. In order to reach out to more beneficiaries in the District, the wheelchairs were distributed by RC Cubao West in many locations: Quezon City Hall lobby; Brgy Tandang Sora; Sinagtala Homes at Brgy Bahay Toro; Childhaus at Brgy Pinyahan; Brgy Pasong Tamo; Brgy Batasan Hills; Brgy Kamuning; among others. In addition, more than twenty Rotary Clubs got wheelchair allocations and distributed these to needy beneficiaries in their respective communities. For easier access and controlled distribution, the wheelchairs were transferred to a building administered by PE Ed Zaragoza. Quezon City is known to be the richest city in the Philippines yet thousands of patients lack wheelchairs. Proof of this is the large government backlog to fill up requests from indigent residents. Many have had to wait for months before getting their free wheelchairs. To dissuade recipients from selling their new wheelchairs to others as had happened in some instances in the past, the Wheelchair team now requires photos and IDs of the recipients. RC Cubao West attended to the visiting US Wheelchair Distribution Team composed of five Rotarians from North Carolina with the usual Filipino hospitality. Cubao West tempted them with local delicacies like mangoes, leche flan, buko pandan ice cream, pansit, halo halo, and daily
summed by RI D7670 PDG Hamp Shuford’s remarks: “Your Club is a shining beacon. In all my years, I’ve never seen such an active club...It makes me proud to be a Rotarian.” Brief background of the wheelchair project The Rotar y Foundation approved in August 2012 Matching Grant No. 77750 for 560 wheelchairs funded with matched funds from Rotary Club of Foster City, RI District 7670 North Carolina, USA. The wheelchairs were intended for needy beneficiaries with mobile disabilities in RI District 3820 (Southern Luzon) and District 3780 (Quezon City). Each District had been allocated 280 wheelchairs in 6 sizes. Local project partners are the Rotary Club of Lucena South (D3820) and Rotary Club of Cubao West . The US Wheelchair Team arrived in Manila to help distribute the wheelchairs in the two Philippine districts from August 25 through September 8, 2013.
Seminars to empower youth with proper knowledge on sexuality are held in high schools
By FC President Josie M. Garcia, RC Cubao West
.E.S. to S.E.X. is the tagline of the controversial project of Rotary Club of Cubao West. The Youth Empowerment on Sexuality (Y.E.S.) Seminar is geared towards recognizing the dignity and worth of every human being, especially the youth. Aimed for 3rd and 4th year high school students, this DepEd endorsed YES Seminar is part of a Chastity Education Program that actively engages the youth to understand the physical, spiritual and emotional changes that go along with growing up. Spearheaded by the Batang Quezon City Foundation, Inc. and partnering with RC Cubao West and Digma ng Buhay Foundation, this YES Seminar is being delivered in the six (6) Congressional Districts of Quezon City since August 2013. Ranging from 200 to 250 student participants, equally divided according to gender, the YES seminar runs from 8am to 12nn in 12 pre-selected Public Schools. Hosted ably by Mr. Ansel Beluso, a veteran writer and radio host, the YES Seminar is a mix of lecture, film showing, workshop and other interactive exercises, with kits, snacks and simple graduation rites to top it off. The youth are progressively introduced to face their own sexuality without malice nor nervous discrimination. The sensitive topics are discussed objectively without social
prejudice; correcting the immature and usually misleading avalanche of information taken from the Internet, from tabloids and magazines, and even from fellow youths and barkadas. The youth are empowered by correct knowledge on their sexual development allowing them to make educated and more mature decisions. Beneficiary Schools E. Rodriguez Jr. High School San Francisco High School Commonwealth High School Batasan National High School Carlos P Garcia High School Quirino High School Quezon City High School Ramon Magsaysay High School North Fairview High School Novaliches High School Culiat High School Tandang Sora National High School

Messages, news and information from Rotary International
RI President’s October Message
Dear fellow Rotarians,
In Rotary, October is the month we set aside to remind ourselves of our second Avenue of Service: vocational service. While some Rotarians call this the "forgotten" area of service, I would disagree: In fact, vocational service is the avenue through which we serve so often, we don't always recognize it as service. Vocational service has its roots in the second object of Rotary, which encourages all Rotarians to hold high ethical standards in our business affairs and our professions, to recognize all useful occupations as worthy of respect, and to dignify work as an opportunity to serve society. In short, the idea of vocational service is that our jobs, in themselves, are a way of serving society. Whether we are serving customers, teaching students, or treating patients, whether we're involved in commerce, research, the media, or any one of countless other fields – we take pride in doing our work with competence and integrity. Every occupation fills a need, and by doing our work well, we are contributing to our communities and our society. The role of vocational service in the club is important, even if it isn't always prominent. By maintaining high standards individually, we earn a reputation that we share collectively. By valuing all occupations equally and by maintaining a classification system in our clubs, we ensure that our clubs reflect our communities – and can serve them well. A Rotary club of all lawyers wouldn't be capable of nearly as much as one that also had teachers, engineers, business owners, and dentists; in Rotary, our diversity is our strength. That diversity is an advantage not only to our service but to our members: It gives us all a valuable way to find the connections and opportunities that help us in our own careers. That aspect of membership is as old as Rotary. Paul Harris himself wrote often of the business advantages of Rotary membership, believing, as I do, that being a Rotarian means a person holds a certain set of values that will make him or her a good person to do business with. Today, with the world more connected than ever, Rotary membership is an honor that we should be proud to share.
Foundation Chairman’s October Message
On 24 October, we mark World Polio Day. It is a time to reflect on the progress we've made and to strengthen our determination for the work ahead. It's important to realize how far we've come. We have reduced the number of polio cases by over 99 percent, from more than 350,000 a year in the 1980s to 223 in 2012. But now for the road ahead: Polio is still endemic in Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. Difficult terrain, civil unrest, remote settlements, and poor sanitation are just some of the obstacles to immunization. That's why we, and our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, are determined to finish our work. With the announcement of the extended fundraising partnership between Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation at the 2013 RI Convention in Lisbon, Portugal, we have the chance to introduce millions of new dollars into the campaign. The value of this extended partnership is more than $500 million, and through it, your contributions toward polio eradication will work twice as hard. It's more important than ever that we all take action. Talk to your government leaders, share your polio stories on your social networks, and encourage others in your community to join us in supporting this historic effort. When Rotarians combine their passion for service with our strong global network, we are unstoppable. With the backing of the Gates Foundation and you, the Rotarians around the world, we can change the face of public health forever.
