Frankies Supporting the Public School System

The brethren of Frank Reed Horton Memorial Lodge No. 379 took time out last September 24, 2011 to again visit Minalin, Pampanga but this time around to visit two public schools to donate 2 Desktop Computers each, distribute food to the kids, deliver wheel chairs to some of their parents and also to do a bit of tree planting.

Frankies, we maybe be few but we carry big sticks. Tshirts in Square and Compass.

The Lodge is always supported by our hardworking petitioners without them we would have a hard and less fun time. Tshirts in Fleur de lis.

Sagip Kalikasan with the Frankies

On September 17, 2011, the brethren of Frank Reed Horton Memorial Lodge No. 379 led by its Worshipful Master, Brother Robert Sing assisted by his wardens Kristoffer Llacuna and Belli Tamayo attended the 3rd Sagip Kalikasan Program of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of the Philippines. The Frankies joined several hundred masons in planting tree seedlings at the Quezon City Parks and Wildlife and despite the weather it was an eventful and memorable day for every mason who participated and their families. Below are some photos of the event with captions.

Frank Reed Horton Memorial Lodge Projects for June 2011

On June 17, 2011, the Brethren of Frank Reed Horton Memorial Lodge No. 379 led by its Worshipful Master, WB Robert “Mr. Charity” Sing went to Minalin, Pampanga for its “Sapin sa Paa Project” for 152 school children of Bulac Elementary School. Aside from giving slippers to the students, the brethren also distributed school supplies consisting of shirts, towels, pencils and pads to the children and donated to the school library lots of children’s books. The children were also treated to snacks and drinks, and later on with packed lunch.

As there were surplus of slippers and other school supplies, nearby Saplad Elementary School was also made a recipient of this project.

On July 2, 2011, the Brethren of Frank Reed Horton Memorial Lodge No. 379, on the occasion of the birthday of Bro. SW Kristoffer G. B. Llacuna, conducted an Outreach Program at the Golden Acres Haven for the Elderly at Brgy. Pag-Asa, Quezon City. Some 100 elderlies were treated to hot arrozcaldo and boxes and cans of milks were donated to the Center together with Washing Machine Dryer, Big Rice Cooker, towels, toothbrushes, toothpastes, biscuits, noodles and eggs.

This tradition of celebrating birthdays with our less fortunate fellowmen was initiated by WB Sing when he celebrated his Birthday with children patients at the Philippine Orthopedic Hospital and followed by Bro. JW Belli B. Tamayo who celebrated his birthday at DSWD-RSSC at Quezon City.

The recently conducted Outreach Program was also the Brethren’s tribute to the Worshipful Master’s mother, Mama Sing Le Tin Ong, who have joined our Supreme Grand Master on the evening of June 29, 2011. May she rest in peace in the Joy of our Lord.

Frank Reed Horton Memorial Lodge No. 379 Anniversary

The brethren of lodge 379 paid a courtesy call to MW Juanito Abergas, Grand Master of Masons of the Philippines.

As part of the 3rd Anniversary celebration of Frank Reed Horton Memorial Lodge no. 379, the Brethren also conducted a Dental Mission to some 148 residents of Brgy. North Fairview, Quezon City in the morning of May 15, 2011, a Sunday.

Through the indispensable cooperation of our brethren-dentists from other lodges namely; VW Allan Bontuyan (Andres Bonifacio Lodge No. 199), Bro. Ferdie Limchangco (Capitol City Lodge No. 174) and Bro. Cary Bryan Ong (Lodge Perla del Oriente No. 1034, S.C.), who were wooed by Worshipful Master Robert Sing, we were able to give free dental services and medicines to our less fortunate countrymen.

Fellowship followed at the residence of Bro. Nestor Mendoza where the brethren had lunch a la boodle fight, with brethren and petitioners feasting on bare hands. Said WM Robert Sing ” Thank you Brethren for coming in today’s dental mission. I know that you are still tired from last night’s anniversary celebration, and I know that I have stolen your time from your families today as this is a Sunday. Allow me then to thank you and your family for making sacrifices for the lodge and humanity.”
