REAPING THE DIVIDENDS OF


PARTNERSHIP BUILDING
Over the past three and half months, Pres Raffy Chico
and the rest of the members of the Club had embarked on a sustained partnership building through the
forging of sisterclub agreements and club visits. These
initiatives were undertaken to foster goodwill and better friendship with Rotarians with other clubs not only
within the District, but also outside of the District. This
partnership building was also undertaken with other
various organizations, government agencies and corporate entities to boost the capacity of the Club in the
delivery of its community service projects.

VP Marlon Sapla
As the Club continues to evolve in the next eight (8)
months of the Rotary year, it is expected to rebuild its
partnership with other Rotary Clubs and other stakeholders in the delivery of its community service projects and
other projects involving the other avenues of service. As
such, all Club members are enjoined to vigorously pursue
this endeavor and also make this as an opportunity to
recruit other potential members of the Club.

And the dividends of these partnership buildings were


reaped during the multi-district and multi-club projects
of the Club last October 3, 2015 advocacy caravan on
climate change mitigation and tree planting in Clark
Freeport Zone, Pampanga and the October 17, 2015
multi-mission community service project in Quezon
City, respectively. It could be gleaned from these two
big projects that partnership really matters for the success of any community service projects. And these
could not be made possible without having established
a deeper friendship with Rotarians in other Rotary
Clubs and the partner organizations, agencies and
corporate entities.

The Power of One in Rotary


Make it our Culture!
There are many things that could affect the lives of
millions, but there is one thing that really stands out
from the others, The Power of One. The important
thing about the power of one in our club and even in
our District is making a difference. One goal, one
thrust, one vision and one advocacy in all our undertakings as club can make a difference in someone
else's life. If someone changes your entire life or
your outlook on it, you can definitely agree to the
power of one. Regardless of anyone from our club is
rendering services in our chosen community and
sharing dedicatedly whatever gifts or talents God
has given us, as long as the Power of One is within
us and all believe that what we are exercising is the
time tested principle of Rotary service above
self; then that someone that can reach out to just
one person's life is just as important as someone
who can change the lives of millions.
We may have gone through many difficult times on
finding the resources we need just to alleviate human sufferings and/or transform other peoples
lives, but one thing I am sure that we will be able to
surpass that difficulties if we have the Power of
One in our organization. More helping hands will
make our service journey easier and lighter. It is
more fun to share whatever services we could afford
just to reach our goal and truly made other underprivileged people happier and feel that we care for
them.

Pres. Rafael Raffy S. Chico

wants everyone to get along with each other in one


direction. The next is history and now it is the culture of Rotarians to build dreams of the young people, develop leaders that will make a difference, to
resolve conflicts and promote peace, to alleviate
human sufferings by disease prevention and treatment, to help build sanitary dwelling places, promote the literacy and education not just only students or out of school youths, but also the Rotary
Community Corps members; and it is becoming
unlimited on how Rotarians could help alleviate human sufferings. Those successful and impactful projects are those that have done with the principle of
the power of one, meaning services or any projects
that have been supported and well-coordinated with
more than one club or a number of clubs were able
to generate more numbers of beneficiaries. If we will
work as a team, unselfishly share our Gods given
talents, time and treasures, then nothing is impossible. With the Power of One we can do more! And
truly a Gift to the World!

In the movie, it shows that one person can change


the world. That one person may not be able to do a
whole lot physically to change the world, but one
person has the power to inspire others to help that
person change the world. It also shows very firmly
that one person can set an example for others that
may affect the outcome of any situation. One is very
meaningful and significant. Paul Harris becomes a
symbol of Rotary by trying to make all the people
respect each other and travel on wheels of service
above self. Regardless of their culture or color of
skin, he was successful on harnessing the singular
vision of the Rotary around the world. Paul Harris
