Horton Brethren join Shriners Hotsands Ceremonials

A number of brethren from Frank Reed Horton Memorial Lodge #379 braved the hotsands of the desert towards Mecca in their quest to become nobles of the Ancient Order Of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine last October 1, 2 & 3 at Ambassador Hotel, Malate, Manila. The group was led by no less than the Acting Worshipful Master – Senior Warden Eric S. Sagario; under the blessing of lodgemates PNSC incumbent President and Divan of Mabuhay Shriners Robert Ong Sing and Bamboo High Shereef Elmer Garcia. 109 Master Masons successfully crossed the hot sands of Mecca. Out of that number, there were about 14 FRHML brethren who joined the caravan, the majority of which under Bamboo Oasis, the oldest and the first Shriners Oasis in the Philippines.
